How many of us, still in the working universe – or maybe working from home – think they need coffee to boost their energy and jump-start their day? How many of us wake up with a fuzzy brain and mindlessly think a shot of java will do it for them?
I do my best to keep up with the latest research about high blood pressure (hypertension) because this illness has had such an awful impact on many of my family members and friends. So, understandably, the cardiovascular risks, such as heart attacks and strokes, are all very well known to me.

Who enjoys drinking French champagne? Or, more accurately, who doesn’t?
French champagne conjures up images of special celebrations, a touch of luxury or just those unique, unforgettable moments in your life. There is nothing that I like more than a chilled ‘glass of bubbles’ any time of the day.
As the name sounds, a small group tour is intended for a small number of people to visit and tour a venue.
There are small group tours for every interest, hobby or destination. You can join a food, art, education, extreme sport, walking or cycling tour – in any country or place imaginable.
There aren’t many trip options that are so well suited to solo travelers as cruising. Where else can you go that you have the perfect balance of social interaction and as much quiet personal time as you desire?
At my favorite Bangkok duck-soup stall, the owner lights up every time I say, “Aroy mak!” letting her know I thought the food was delicious. There’s a momentary connection we wouldn’t have had, had I said, “Delicious!” in English.

I’m not sure why, but, it seems like older adults are routinely the target for scams of all kinds. Maybe criminals have simply fallen for the same aging stereotypes as everyone else and believe that we are easy targets. Or, perhaps they rightly assume that, statistically at least, we have more money to spend.
More than almost any other phase in our lives, our 60s are a time of transitions. At Sixty and Me, we like to focus on the emotional aspects of life after 60 – reinvention, making friends as an adult and overcoming your fears.
The core principles behind automating your finances are not new. In fact, if your parents ever put their coins in little jars labelled “vacation,” “emergency,” and “savings,” you’ve seen the basics of financial automation at work.
I’ve been thinking about retirement a lot lately. Like many women in our community, I don’t see myself slowing down any time soon. This year, I turn 70, so, I reached retirement age quite a while ago. But, as a freelance consultant and the founder of Sixty and Me, it feels like I am working harder than ever.

Don’t you love to hear someone say, “I remember holidays at my grandparents’ house. I loved the smells and the decorations, especially the _____________. That was my favorite!” Do your kids, grandkids or family friends have specific decorations they always comment on?
We’ve all probably been asked, at least once in our lives, to name five people, living or dead, with whom we’d like to have dinner.
When I was a little girl, I loved reading books. I remember sitting under a tree for hours, letting the images from my favorite stories fill my mind. At the time, I didn’t see reading as being serious business. Like most children, I saw books as a welcome escape from my schoolwork or household chores. Little did I know that the books that I was reading would influence my life for decades to come. It is not an exaggeration to say that many of the books that I read changed my life.

Are you the best person that you can be? It’s a simple question, but, its consequences are far reaching. Why?
Because making a commitment to self-improvement puts us in control of our lives – and a sense of control is a cornerstone of positivity. By taking action to be the best person we can be, we assert our right to judge ourselves. At the same time, we deny the right of others to judge us.
I saw a meme on Facebook last week with the following instruction: “think of one thing that makes you happy and smile.”
This blog is part two of a three-part series describing the six dimensions of wellness: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and vocational and how they work together to form whole-person wellness.
