Staying connected

Are you into mental challenges like chess and crossword puzzles? Perhaps you want to find out more about your family by researching your ancestry. And once you've done the research, maybe you'd like to create your own memory book, digital photo album or audio memoir. Do you finally have the time to write down (or gather up) those treasured family recipes and make a cookbook of a lifetime? These kinds of activities can be great family projects that can bring everyone together.

And if you really want to exercise your creative options to their fullest, you can express yourself through the arts. Whether it's a sketchbook, paintbrush, diary, musical instrument, or another "crafty" outlet, this may be the perfect time to let out the inner artist in you.

It's all about staying active and connected.
