By the time we reach our 60s, most of us have given up on anti-aging pills and potions. In fact, most of us don’t want to look younger; we just want to look radiant and full of life. This is why I prefer the term “positive aging” to “anti-aging.”
Ever feel like your wardrobe is in a rut? You grab the first thing you can reach and throw it on. You look… OK. But you’ve been wearing the same old outfit for years.

Labels can be necessary, helpful or, sometimes, just plain insulting. MAWIM is an acronym I encountered in a local travel piece, and it stands for Middle Aged Women in Menopause. I immediately cringed. But read on.
Society is full of suggestions and opinions on ageing and the changes we should make as we get older. But what should we really be doing as we try to embrace healthy ageing?

When you hear the word tea, what usually comes to mind? Black, green, White? Perhaps Oolong? Or do you think of a specific tea blend like Earl Grey or English Breakfast? I think it’s probably safe to say that one type of tea that doesn’t pop into your brain is Dark Tea.

The death of my husband more than a decade ago was the toughest experience of my life. I had turned 60 just a month before his passing.
As you already know, attracting Mr. Right into your life can be a bit challenging. Unfortunately, growing up with fairy tales as children and romantic movies as an adult, you probably got an unrealistic picture of who men are and how they operate in the dating world.

Have you ever had the urge to enter the wilderness with a backpack, but dismissed it as an impossibly silly dream, because you felt too old and out of shape? I am here to tell you that you can do it! You don’t need to be young, thin, athletic or tough. Here is my story.
Yesterday, I had a conversation with a new friend who, at the age of 70, has found herself single again. She is now terrified that she won’t have the courage to do the things that she wanted to do while she was attached… most importantly, travel!
I exhaled a huge sigh of relief as I left the Police Station of Phuket, Thailand. I’d gotten off easy with a fine of $12 US, and a private payment of $90 US. That was all I had to pay for a traffic accident abroad.

As many women in our community know, living on Social Security alone is no picnic. You have to keep a roof over your head, food on the table and clothes on your back. But, as necessary as they are, these aren’t the costs that most of us should fear as we get a little older.
When I asked the women in our community to share their advice for younger women, a surprising number recommended that their younger sisters keep a separate bank account from their husbands.

At any other point in your career, telling your employer that you are quitting without a new job waiting for you is a big mistake. But, I’m here to tell you that there is something far worse than saying “I quit” and that is saying “I’m retiring.”
Are you imperfect? Good. That means you are human.
But are you coming to terms with being imperfect? Ah, there lies the challenge.
I know this feeling of sameness so well. It starts with being grumpy for a few days or weeks – on edge, short-tempered. Then I’ll start sleeping poorly. I know that it’s taken a hold on me when I don’t want to get up in the morning, when I pull the covers over my head instead of going out on a run.

I’ve noticed women often have a love-hate relationship with visibility. We long to be seen and heard while also being afraid of it.
The media talks a lot about the health benefits of living an active and full life. They say having a purpose in life is the key to positive aging, but are you stuck trying to find your purpose?
All day long, you make decisions – some large, some small. Each one of them reflects the things that you feel are important. What is the basis for this or that decision? It’s something that may not be immediately apparent as you go about your day, dealing with events, people, circumstances.
