Learning to play guitar.


I'd love it if Virgin Health Miles would team up with Weight Watchers. My husband and I joined Weight Watchers right after the first of the year. It would be so great to intergrade the two somehow so that my activity got entered into my weight watchers profile too!

Patti Sykes

I teach 5th grade so I know how reading for fun is important to my students' success. I found that they read more when they see me reading so I've set aside 10 minutes of my class time each day for "DEAR" time (Drop Everything And Read) Working out the brain!

Pamela Pruett BMCE OPS

Learning new words is a new hobby of mine.

Also as a chef, I'm always trying new cooking recipes.

This will be part of my legacy :p

I love my boot camp, now for over a year. I noticed better concentration at work. I sleep better. Physical tasks are easier. My mile walk from train stations to work is easier & most important playing with my grandchildren.


Learning to read music is like learning a foreign language. It keeps the mind sharp and it is very rewarding. I have been taking piano lessons for 4 years now and just scratched the surface. I can play some songs but I have not learned to play by ear yet.
I am working toward that goal.

Teresa W. Lee

Valeri Pighini

My 78-year-old mother and I are taking Italian Language classes together. We walk a mile to and from the class together and have made many new friends. I feel like we hit a lot of the highlights outlined in this article. My mom wouldn't do this on her own, so it's a way of getting her out, spending time with her, and learning together - it's fun.

Christine Wiegand

Knitting helps remove the stress generated at work. When I knit, my work stress fades away and it's fun giving people the knitted things I make. It's all good.


Doing Yoga 2-3 times a week has helped me considerably. I need it to de-stress, relax, relieve muscle tension - it has been a fabulous addition to my life for mind & body. Truely believe I have avoided carpel tunnel syndrome by doing yoga, seeing a chiropractor regularly & therapudic massage.


I would really like to learn French

I would like to learn Spanish my husband is from Panama, Panama & we spent April of last year there with me not able to talk to people and I'm a talker big time, it was rough!


I'm with a lot of you...I'd love to know more Spanish. I took French in high school and college, then married my wonderful hubby, who's from Guatemala. People ask me all the time if I speak Spanish, and I hate telling them that I don't. I wonder if I can use my Rosetta Stone while I'm working out??? :-)


Stress is tough on me, but I grab my dictionary and open to any-page, and pick a word I don't know. Some of the words are strange (like prestidigitator -basically, a magician) if I can't sleep, this is a great way to get sleepy! lol :)


I read that walking backwards gives your brain a extra workout. So now when I walk on a track, I walk at least one lap backwards. I look like a dope, but I figure I'm exercising both my body and brain at the same time so I don't care.


Stress is a big one for me :-/ I would like to learn how to not be stressed lol But seriously maybe some different methods to help de-stress anytime, anywhere :)


I have been learning French on the Coffebreak French podcasts since January- tres magnifique!
