In a new work supported by USA Triathlon (USAT), the governing body for triathlon and related multi-sport competitions, eighteen senior world champion triathletes offer bright-side strategies for minimizing frailties and maximizing possibilities for wellbeing, particularly exuberance, physical fitness, mental acuity, happiness and joy, meaning and relevance.

A treasure trove of 66 uncommon but plausible tips that, if practiced, should make life better (healthier), more enjoyable and more attractive. Not Dead Yet seeks to render getting older less daunting and more appealing for all who are, or want to be old someday, though not too soon!

Not Dead Yet provides what you must know about aging and thriving but may have been too polite or nervous to ask, not realizing that thriving at this stage of life was a realistic option. The focus of this work is upon positive, largely under-appreciated opportunities that can make the later years the best of times, by far. The humor and wit of the accomplished perennial triathletes, the eloquent words of Robert Green Ingersoll throughout and chapters on REAL wellness, frailty and death, meaning and purpose, epiphanies, fun, staying relevant and what’s left should appeal to readers of all ages.

The focus of Not Dead Yet is different from books on aging which overwhelmingly focus on medical advice oriented to frailties, illnesses and the looming presence of death, not successful adaptation to older age. The tips and other material in Not Dead Yet complement sound medical counsel, particularly with respect to the prevention of the usual difficulties, but the difference is dramatic because the focus goes beyond coping to exuberant living. Not Dead Yet tips represent an upbeat message; the commentaries do not focus on the dark side of aging. The participating champions don’t deny any of it, but they don’t dwell upon any of it, either.

While much valuable information about the difficult facts and dynamics of aging is common knowledge, the absence of the positive side of being in or near the retirement years tends to discourage older populations, not encourage positive actions that will improve health status. The emphasis in this book is on action – forward-moving attitudinal and behavioral advice.

In short, Not Dead Yet is wholly designed to foster proactive health-enhancing actions that add wellbeing and enjoyment beyond the absence of discomfort, limitations and suffering. The challenges of aging are well known, especially those dealing with negative changes physical and mental. The tips embrace the bright side of senior life, practical ways to bring a bit of Spring and Summer to the Fall of existence.

Readers will surely enjoy and act upon the words of wisdom from these senior champions and ponder their many recommended steps for success at aging. These writers want you to make the most of opportunities associated with being mature, wiser than ever and perhaps retired with more time to do what you want to do, with whom and when in ways you prefer to go about it. Elder life situations are rich with under-appreciated possibilities to do more while complaining and suffering less.

The ideas on aging comport with something the great American 19th century orator Robert Green Ingersoll (1833-1899) said of happiness, namely, that the time to be happy is now, the place to be happy is here and the way to be happy is to make others so. While we cannot directly make others happy, we can and are seeking, with Not Dead Yet, to provide sparkling tips and commentaries that will brighten the time remaining for all readers. We believe we can do this to some extent by inciting action on the part of readers to do more that can readily be done to enjoy good health and happiness, love and joyful living in the time remaining.

Ever wanted to try an escape room, but didn’t know where to start looking for one, or what it really means? How about you’ve looked into what escape rooms are, but you don’t know how to begin the process of finding a game and then actually solving the puzzles to get out?

Lucky for you Brittnee is here! I’ll take you from start to finish on how to get the most out of your Escape Room Experience!

Step 1: Read this article

Just kidding

Step 1: Google and Yelp are your best friends

Google “Escape Room *YOUR CITY NAME*” and see what comes up. Dig deeper and check out the map so you can even find one closest you. Once you’ve found a few great prospects head over to Yelp and see how they compare to other rooms. Read a few of the reviews, you might even find out one is too scary for what you’re interested in.. or one doesn’t do well with kids.

Step 2: Check out their social media for promo codes

You’ve found the escape room you think you’d like to visit, awesome. You can Google and yelp like nobody’s business. Now you’ll want to see if they offer any special codes on their social media pages. We always have the best deals on our Facebook and Instagram at my escape room. Sometimes you’ll be able to find $5 off promo codes that wouldn’t be mentioned anywhere else.

Step 3: Go to their Website

Now that you’ve got your smarty pants discount, you’ll want to know when the place has availability and what rooms they have. The majority of the places you’re going to see will have multiple rooms with different themes. Also, most escape rooms make you book in advance and some can get pretty busy. Check out their booking page and see what they have open. Then book it before anyone else does!

*Be careful when booking a partial room. If there are 6 slots available and you’ve only booked 4 players, 2 more players could join your game – if you call the business though, they may help you out and block it for you

Step 4: Be on time!

Your Game Master will love you for it and being on his good side can’t be a bad thing. A game master is the one offering you any hints or clues if you’re struggling after all.

Step 5: Listen to the Rules/Intro

They’re there for a reason! Not only do we hate when guests break stuff, but we’ll usually tell you how to avoid things that will only waste your time! Remember we want you to have fun and get out! We won’t tell you not to climb on something as a trick. Also some rooms have informative intros that may even include a few extra hints, so listen up!

Step 6: No Lollygagging

Okay, now you’re in this gloriously decorated room and all you want to do is look at all the pretty details for the next 5 minutes. Nope. Don’t do that. Most rooms give you 60 minutes, so you’ll need to hustle. Give yourself 10 seconds to appreciate the work they put into the aesthetics and then start tearing it apart. (okay not literally, that would suck, just start moving things and looking every where)

Sometimes you’ll need to find objects hidden around the room to help you with other puzzles… sometimes you’ll need to actually find the puzzles… so start looking and gathering everything you find!

Step 7: Split up

Some rooms are harder than others or have more puzzles than others, but there’s no harm in splitting up. Some rooms have multiple linear and non linear puzzles (linear meaning you will solve a puzzle that leads into the next puzzle and so on). So you’ll benefit from splitting into a couple teams and tackling multiple puzzles at once.

Step 8: Communicate with your Group

There’s nothing worse than spending 10 minutes looking for a key your teammate found when they first entered and forgot they had pocketed it. Don’t be that person. When you find something tell everyone, maybe they’ll need it right away or at some …
