One of the biggest misconceptions about aging is that we no longer care about beauty, sex or romantic companionship. What rubbish!
Older women today are challenging stereotypes and living life with verve and passion. We want to look great, even if we don’t really care what other people think. We want to build meaningful
Seeing young women advertising anti-aging creams has always annoyed me. Their skin is already flawless. What “improvements” could they possibly desire? I realize, of course, that I may not be in the target audience for most anti-aging creams. Women who are under extreme pressure to look useful are usually in their 30s or 40s.
This is a guest post by Techboomers.com. One of the advantages of getting a little older is that you finally have more time to travel. But how do you balance having a rich getaway experience with being practical and economical?
This is a guest post by Susan Shain. Where are you and your grandkids going on vacation this year? To the beach? On a cruise? To a theme park?
What if we told you there was a new way to travel that would give your family an unparalleled opportunity to experience the world together? One that allowed you to give back, learn about a new culture and enjoy some good ol’ fashioned quality time?

By the time we reach our 60s, most of us have regrets. This is a natural part of life. Some of us regret the way that a certain relationship ended. Others wish that we had stayed in closer contact with our friends or family. Still others wonder whether we should have taken a different path in our career.
Ok, so, it turns out that a career doesn’t actually last a lifetime. In fact, the experts say that the average American can expect to have up to 11 jobs. Most of these jobs are within the same general category, but I suspect that the women in our community have made at least 2 to 3 big career changes over the course of their lives. And, now that we are in our 50s and 60s, many of us are once again ready for something entirely different.
Every woman over 60 deals with stress in a different way. Some people, like me, even thrive with a little stress in our lives. We feel that stress, up to a certain point, makes us stronger and more alive. Others fear stress or all kinds and do everything that they can to avoid it. What stresses you out? Do you think that there are some kinds of stress that are positive, while others are negative?

For most of us, life after 60 is filled with opportunity, laughter and happiness. Unfortunately, it is also filled with its share of tragedy. Some of us will have to deal with the loss of our spouse. Others will watch their children going through difficult times. The majority of us will be touched by illness in some way.
There are certain holidays like Valentine’s Day that put the word “love” under a magnifying glass. We use this word to embody so many emotions, ranging from trust and appreciation to passion and desire. The words we use to describe love say a lot about how we view the connections between people.
The unfortunate truth is that as we get older we lose muscle strength, flexibility, sense of balance, and our bones start to thin. It’s all part of the inevitable aging process. Running is a terrific way to strengthen our lower bodies, as well as being good for our cardiovascular health. Running after 60 offers other great health benefits like reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, depression and dementia.
Here are a few insights and ideas to help you get started with running after 60:
