Diversity is one of the best things about our country and the Los Angeles area, and the world.

It celebrates heritages from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Locally, we’ve got the Museum of Latin American Art which is dedicated to showcasing modern and contemporary art from Latino artists and from Latin America, LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture, and LACMA.

Happy 240th Birthday Los Angeles!

September 15th, 2021

Can you believe Los Angeles is 240 years old? The City of Angels has been such a source of diversity, culture, entertainment, and so many other important things. While we’ve got a bright future, we can’t get there without acknowledging the city’s fabulous historical firsts and achievements. We did some digging and from some fun facts about L.A.

Did you know…

Los Angeles has been the only city to host the Olympics twice. And it will be a third time as the city hosts the Olympic Summer Games in 2028.

The La Brea tar pits are the largest source in the entire world of ice age fossils.

L.A. is home to a whopping number of 100 museums.

Life lessons we can learn from our pets

September 10th, 2021

Pets really are part of our families. They add so much to the meaning of each and every day. Their endless and unconditional love is a real example of how we should all treat each other as people. Their eagerness to greet us even when we’ve only left the apartment to run a quick errand is always so magical. They’re also pretty wise about a bunch of life lived well things we can learn from including getting plenty of sleep, the joy of walking, drinking plenty of water, the importance of play, and so much more.

Fiber is your friend and can be delicious

September 7th, 2021

For decades we’ve heard the word ‘fiber’ and it has gotten a bad reputation as being unpleasant tasting and boring. But fiber is a very important part of our diets. It helps us digest food easier, decrease constipation, keep blood sugar levels from spiking, and lots of other beneficial things. So it‘s important for our bodies. There are more ways to enjoy fiber than merely eating bran cereal. And they are delicious!

Here are sources of fiber you may not know about:

Edamame: They are perfect to snack on or throw in a salad.

Blackberries, pears, and raspberries: Perfect for smoothies and toppings for waffles or yogurt.

Artichoke hearts: Fresh artichoke hearts are healthy toppings for pizza or in a pasta dish.

Hass avocados: You don’t have to ask us twice to eat avocados. Use them as a condiment and a substitute for mayonnaise.

Here are some tasty recipes that include fiber and delicious flavor you can try in your beautiful kitchen at NoHo Senior Arts Colony.

Staying positive in tough times

September 5th, 2021

Attitude is everything. It’s what keeps us motivated, giving, and hopeful. Sometimes life can throw us an unexpected curve. And it can be a challenge to regroup and forge on. Here are some tips to help all of us get through the tough days a bit easier. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we are here for you and we’ll get through the tough times together.

REACH OUT TO FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES: You don’t have to take on today’s emotional burdens by yourself. With cell phones, email, texting, Zoom, etc, there are lots of ways to reach out to find support from the people you love and trust the most. It’s fast and easy. Find which method of communication works for you. Human beings are social creatures. Staying in touch is good for our well-being.

STAY ACTIVE: Exercise does help relieve stress but it doesn’t have to be strenuous. Taking regular walks 3 times a week is an easy way to include more exercise. Be sure to take water with you and wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Check with your primary doctor to make sure taking regular walks works with your individual state of health.

DEEP BREATHING: The power of breath is at the cornerstone of so many mindful practices including meditation. It’s free and you can do it anywhere.

SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP: There is nothing wrong with seeking out a therapist and/or psychiatrist to help you navigate things better. It’s just another way you can help yourself. Self-care is important. They are professionally trained to help you deal with life’s challenges. Some people find it very helpful to be able to speak freely to these professionals who are objective. They can help you identify causes of stress and offer suggestions to help you feel better. There’s no stigma to seeking help. We all need help now and then. If you’re not comfortable seeking out a therapist or psychiatrist, try your church, temple, or spiritual community.

You’ve probably heard some talk about Real I.D.s. They’re pretty simple and nothing to worry about. They are the new form of photo I.D. for those living in California. They look like a regular CA I/D/ except they have the cute little bear in the corner. You already have the documents you need to get a new I.D. It has nothing to do with Covid or the pandemic. These new i.d.’s were being issued by the TSA long before the pandemic even started. U.S. citizens and all legal residents of the United States can apply for a California real I.D. This will allow you to fly domestically and enter secure federal buildings. It makes flying much easier. Starting in May 2023, everyone living here will need to have one. But like we said, it’s pretty easy to apply for one and get one. There’s a step-by-step video, real I.D. document checklist, and you can even upload documents online to make the process easier.
