Well it has been a month now, how are the resolutions going? I hope you had a fantastic holiday season. For many, resolutions are challenging, or they become a distraction to their daily lives and then get forgotten (sound familiar). Statistically, this usually happens within the first month. You have to make it part of your daily routine! For me, of course, bit onto the resolution monster and took on two tasks; to improve my health and my knowledge. The health portion is a slow and long-term goal that will take time but can be achieved with persistence and will-power. Since I retired from the military in has been a goal of mine to obtain my Ph.D. in Psychology, so the gaining knowledge part has always been and will be a part of my life. However, my hunger for knowledge has been directed toward veteran-centric topics that affect or help improve veterans' lives every day. One of these topics can be displayed in the one that I have chosen today in how PTSD affects the mental and physical aging process of veterans.
