Honesty has its advantages. You don’t have to remember who you said what to. You don’t have to back-peddle nearly as much. And when it comes to hair, you don’t have to chase that damn white stripe.
Culture is trending more casual than ever before. Men and women used to dress up just to go downtown and do their shopping. Now – at least in some parts of the world – it’s not at all unusual to see folks shopping in their pajamas.
I’m sure we all remember the “rules” that governed how to dress as we were growing up. I realize that it’s hard to change our thinking about something we’ve heard over and over throughout life. However, I do feel like it’s important to be open to new ideas and styles, too. It keeps us young and modern!
Oldushka is a fascinating name for a modeling agency for older adults. It’s a funny blend of English and Russian that you would really only “get” if you had lived in both Russia and the West for some of your life.

Think school is something reserved for your adolescent years?
Perhaps in the traditional sense… but studies show that education is particularly important for people in their 60s and beyond.
Loneliness is a funny thing; it can sneak up on you when you least expect it. Have you found that you’re not socializing as much at this point in your life?
Do you remember doing calisthenics in your gym class? You might recall the part where you had to try to touch your toes by bending over from a standing position or while sitting on the floor with your legs extended.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve heard about the many benefits of probiotics. They are good for just about everything – from your sinusitis to irritable bowel. But, did you know they could be beneficial for your memory?

Scammers are one of the biggest fears women face when dating in their 50s and 60s. You used to only see online scams of men from third world countries using pictures of models to lure women in.
“Don’t take things personally,” a good friend said years ago, back when I started internet dating. “He doesn’t know you.”
Recently, I wrote an article about being single and feeling fabulous about it. The response was enormous and the comments were enlightening!
Dating for older women can be more exciting than you might think! As women, we often get caught up overthinking potential outcomes instead of just biting the bullet and taking the plunge. If you are looking to be inspired to put yourself out there and have a go at dating over 60, you’ll love today’s video with Lisa Copeland!

“Multigenerational travel” has been a buzzword for a few years now. Who can argue with the brochure-ready images of grandparents, adult children, and grandkids all sharing in the joys a family adventure can bring?
I have a passion for cruising like many women in our Sixty and Me community. So, I recently started a new website called She Cruises – for women of all ages who love to cruise!
You can find all my She Cruises posts at www.shecruises.com but I wanted to feature one article that I think is of interest to any woman who is curious about how to prepare and pack.
There aren’t many places left in the world to feel like a true explorer. Antarctica is one of them.
In early November 2018, I was lucky enough to fulfill a dream and be part of a 13-day learning adventure to Antarctica with Road Scholar — the not-for-profit educational travel organization for adults.
I may be over 60, retired, and Canadian, but that doesn’t mean I’d willingly cause an international incident! No way I’m going to be in the spotlight, even if life is pushing me in that peculiar direction.

Do you know what older adults fear most? Is it death? Nope. Getting a serious illness? Not even close. According to a survey by the financial company Allianz, baby boomers fear running out of money in retirement more than anything else.
Specifically, they found that 43% of boomers feared outliving their savings. That’s more than the percentage of people who feared cognitive decline and loneliness combined!
As we approach retirement, it’s natural to think about how we are going to support ourselves in the decades ahead. Starting a business is an option, but, most of us don’t know where to start. In addition, we are constantly exposed to images of 20-something entrepreneurs succeeding. If the media is to be believed, older entrepreneurs don’t stand a chance. Or do they?
Aging? Anti-aging? What’s your vocabulary, and what does it say about growing older?
To me, the word aging suggests we’re going in the wrong direction, and anti-aging suggests we’re fighting against it tooth and nail. Neither feels quite right to me.
If you’re like most people, you spent your 50s working hard and dreaming about all the wonderful things you’d have time for once you retired. Maybe you planned to go on a Caribbean cruise, learn to play the cello, or buy a beach house with a view and spend your days with your nose in a book.

This past summer, my husband and I kept running into people who had been to Europe on bike trips. Every conversation fed our intrigue and we started looking into a self-guided bike trip through Austria, Slovenia, and Croatia.
The music of my youth was more than melody and words. It was a kind of guidance into adult life, a soundtrack for thoughts and feelings that I didn’t know how to reach on my own but were given to me by the likes of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and James Taylor.

to learn something fabulous about who You Are.
On July 9, 1948, he became the oldest rookie ever to debut in major league baseball. Leroy “Satchel” Paige was 42 years old. Well, at least somewhere around that age. Throughout his minor league career, the year of his birth would vary between 1900 and 1908.
Like most Americans over the age of 60, a compact magazine called the Reader’s Digest arrived every week when I was growing up. Although it is still in existence, I haven’t read it for many years. Have you?
As you know, I recently started another website, lifeafterdeath.com, on which I explore the topic of spirituality, especially as we get a little older. Today, I want to invite you to watch my latest interview with Andrew Harvey. In it, we discuss life after death, sacred activism and the poems of Kabir.
