Point of View

Glued To Social Media And Technology

UNITED STATES—My sister shared something with me that baffled me: my niece is so drawn to her phone that she would be on it all day if it never had to be charged. She was sharing a story about how her daughter was supposed to be sleep as she had school the next morning. Granted, my niece is only...

Getting Better Sleep

UNITED STATES—The past two weeks have been one hell of a challenge for me. If there is one thing I value more than family, it is sleep. I’m an early bird; have been since I was a kid, will probably be until the day that I die. However, anyone who knows me is well aware, that I need a...

Positive Thoughts Are Hard To Manifest

UNITED STATES─Think about this for a second: how often are you able to change your mental perception? That’s a loaded question so let me rephrase things. How often do you find yourself immediately in a bad mood and trying everything in your power to get out of that funk? I know I’m not the only person who thinks this...

Stronger Family Communication

UNITED STATES─If there is one thing this pandemic has taught me more than anything it’s that family matters more than anything. You never realize how much you miss something or someone in this case, until you no longer have access to them. I mean this self-isolation and quarantine has placed many Americans in a predicament where they have not...

Let Me Use The Coupon Already

UNITED STATES—I did something this past weekend that I haven’t been able to do for a while? Any guesses as to what I’m referring to? I was able to take a few dollars I had left over after paying off all my bills for the month and treat myself to something. Yes, unfortunately it’s a rarity for me, but...

Career Change Dynamics

UNITED STATES—Something extremely interesting has happened to me in the last week. I have literally had 3 to 4 people tell me that a career change is on the horizon for me. At first I seriously wanted to laugh it off, but then I opened a fortune cookie that said, “You will soon experience a career change.” At first...

Sleeping Dilemma

UNITED STATES─Sleep it has to be the one thing that I crave more than anything in life. I will be completely honest: I don’t sleep great at night. If I’m lucky, I might get 6 hours, but for the past 3-4 weeks, I’ve been averaging probably 4-5 hours of sleep a night. Yes, America I know that is not...

An Active Lifestyle: Overcoming Mobility Challenges

UNITED STATES—As age catches up with us, most people tend to adopt a sedentary lifestyle. In more cases than not, this is catapulted by issues related to poor health, weight or even joint pain. According to a new study, stretching legs daily has a host of benefits for seniors and people struggling with mobility challenges. One myth people tend to...

Twenty-First Century Soulmates: Around Half Of American Couples Now Meet Online

UNITED STATES—According to a study published earlier this year, almost 40% of heterosexual couples now meet online. This is more than through family, friends, or work, indicating a radical change in how singletons choose to connect. Among same-sex partners, the figure is even higher, with 65% of homosexual couples finding each other as a result of dating apps and websites. This means...

Do Friends Really Understand The Maze Of Medicare?

UNITED STATES─Hi Toni: I met with your office in late 2019 for a Toni Says® personalized Medicare consultation. I have a question regarding travel outside the United States due to COVID-19. Once everything calms down and there is travel to other countries, I would like to plan a trip overseas. A friend recently gave me Medicare advice that now has...
