My very first blog for Sixty and Me was published about a year ago, and it covered hypertension. Since then, there have been some important developments in how high blood pressure is defined and how it is treated.
That’s why I thought it fitting to revisit this important topic to help celebrate my first anniversary with the Sixty and Me community.
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for long-term health. It’s needed to maintain the ‘pumps’ that control the movement of salts in and out of cells.
It is also essential for nerve conduction, muscle relaxation, healthy bones and just about every metabolic reaction in the body – including energy production.
Being blessed with the gift of long life has its advantages: you get to watch your grandkids grow, you have the joy of more sunrises and sunsets. You may even explore hobbies you never had time for.
Life is a sequence of transitions. We start as children at school, perhaps attend college, start careers, take time out of a career to care for others, perhaps start a new job and eventually transition out of paid work.

When you ask most single older people if they would like to find love after 50, the answer is almost always yes. But, if you ask them whether they think it is actually possible to find love after 50, their answers are more mixed. Some people believe that finding love is possible at any age. Others are skeptical.
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
One of the best things about running Sixty and Me is that I get to interview so many fascinating people. Recently, I have interviewed over 50 dating coaches and entrepreneurs, doctors and yoga teachers. Each discussion was unique in its own way, but, I have to be honest that I have a special place in my heart for my interview with dating coach, David Wygant.
I’ve met a lot of discouraged mid-life ladies, women who worry that, when it comes to dating after 60, all men want is someone young and hot. And yes, most men would like to find a younger woman; and they put a premium on aspects of beauty that are tough to maintain as we age. I could tell you they don’t, but I’d be lying, undercutting my own credibility, and going against data collected all over the world.
Yet you can successfully compete with younger women. Here’s how, in five scientifically proven steps:

Can you believe that one small city in Croatia can be the movie set for Games of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood? Games of Throne and Robin Hood we can imagine, but Star Wars? That city is Dubrovnik, A UNESCO World Heritage Site.
On the surface, living on a cruise ship sounds like heaven. Just imagine. It’s 7am and you are awoken by the sunrise and the sounds of sea birds. You stretch, throw on a robe and make your way to your balcony. Moments later, your husband returns with two cappuccinos and a carafe of fresh orange juice.
Deciding what to take with me when I travel has always been a challenge; so much so that I have even created my own detailed packing list. Unfortunately, it doesn’t do much good because I seem to travel to so many different places with so many different climates.
Smith College, in the 1960s, was a hotbed of social activism. Students on the all-female campus stood up not just for women’s rights, but for human rights.
One student in particular made her life’s work to make the world a better place. From contributing to President John F. Kennedy’s “War on Poverty” to serving in the Peace Corps in Sierra Leone to a career as a teacher, Lee has always believed that education is society’s great equalizer.

My mother died when I was 18. She was only 50. There were no hospices in the United States at the time. So, she died in a very sterile and clinical hospital environment. There were already a few hospices in the U.K. But, it was not until 1974 that the first home-care program for the terminally ill opened in the States…
I saw this as a little blurb in an AARP article: “When you eat out, do you order lobster or chicken?” I stopped cold. I order the chicken, of course. And now I’m annoyed with myself.
As a new grandmother (for the second time), I have had the opportunity to think about some of the things that were missing in my “Baba Bag” or “Grandmother Survival Kit!”
We all know that as we get older it is even more important to take care of our body and feed it with healthy food and goodness. However, there are also those times when we just need a sweet treat!

Are you a worrier? There are a lot of us about. Perhaps especially as we get older. Personally, I’ve been a worrier all my life. There is so much to worry about!
I love the power of words and how you can re-arrange them in such a way to create impact. But how do you do that when meeting people?
I said goodbye to city life and hello to island living almost 15 years ago when I moved to a small island with a permanent population of 4,300 people, dozens of wild turkeys, a healthy deer population, mischievous racoons and a few errant peacocks.
