I don’t have to convince you that exercise is a necessary component of healthy aging. It can lower blood pressure, improve cardio health, lower your risk of certain cancers and arthritis, prevent osteoporosis and improve your energy, sleep and metabolism. I think of it as a celebration of what our bodies can still do!
To say that our relationship with food is complex is an understatement, especially when it comes to weight loss. If it was easy, I would put on my dietitian hat and tell you how many carbs, proteins and fats you should be eating.
When it comes to staying active and getting exercise, it’s so easy to tap into your go-to list of low-impact activities like yoga, cycling, tennis, dancing, swimming, golfing and hiking.
Bloating is prompted by indigestion or gas in the stomach and is most often associated with a protruding stomach. Women may also say their faces show signs of being bloated or use the term bloated feet.

When I asked the Boomerly community whether they still believed that it’s possible to find love after 50, I knew what to expect. I was prepared for a fairly even split between people that thought that finding love after 50 is possible and those who have given up entirely on finding a romantic relationship.
As our generation gets a little older, a surprising number of us are putting on our dancing shoes and getting back in the senior dating game. After all, more women over 60 are single than ever before, whether that’s due to divorce or widowhood or just never having been married in the first place.
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

Some people stay in one place most or all their lives and are very content. Then there are some, like me, who crave change and move frequently from place to place.
One of the best things about living in the Top End of Australia is its close proximity to Asia.
We love to holiday in Bali! Famed as a popular surfing hangout in the 70s, Bali still attracts millions of visitors each year.
Why had it taken so long for me to go on a cruise?
The first thing that comes to mind is that for years I was working and raising a family. Saving for college and retirement. Cruises are not inexpensive, so I wasn’t able to take my family on a cruise, nor was I going to go off alone. So for me, timing was largely the issue. And now, the time had come.
Where are all the ATMs near me? It’s a question that every single one of us has asked at one time or another while in another country. After all, very few of us like to travel with huge bundles of cash and not every shop accepts credit cards, especially for small amounts.

Now that you have decided to start your little business selling your products, it is time to address how you are going to set up your marketing plan. Up till now, you have been doing your hobby for fun and perhaps selling a few items/services here and there.
When our careers are in full swing, we don’t think about the importance of jobs for retirees. Either we assume that we will save enough money to live in comfort in the “best years of our lives” or we look forward to enjoying our freedom in retirement, without working, even if it means cutting back on luxuries.
Why is it that time seems to fly now that we’re 60 or 70 or 80? I’m often amazed when a wedding, the death of friend or a move to a new city was 20 or 30 years ago. Heavens, it’s already 2018! What happened to 2017?

Simplifying, downsizing, decluttering… these topics seem to be very popular right now. Why is this such an issue for so many people?
In case you are not familiar with “nicecream” yet, pay attention because this will change your life!
Nicecream is simply healthy ice cream, made from frozen bananas. It’s also super simple to make. All you need is a food processor or blender with a powerful motor and frozen bananas.
Most people think that life after 60 is all about relaxing. Well, this may be true for some of us… but, most older adults live pretty busy lives. So, when we find a simple, easy-to-make recipe that is both hearty and tasty, we are always ready to give it a shot!
For most people, Korea is an enigmatic country.

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.
At the beginning of the growing season, I purchased a beautiful flowering plant. It grows tall and its blooms are bright. The hot summer sun seemed to thwart its growth. I thought, “Well, that was a short blooming season.”
There was no time for a blow dryer. For the past few weeks, my hair has been in braids anyway.
The hours of sorting, packing and otherwise running errands for my upcoming move from Ashland to Austin left me, most days, in desperate need of a hot, soapy shower. My look had definitely morphed to Grandma Clampett, sans the shotgun.
