One of the most common requests that I get from the women in our community is to interview a professional stylist on the topic of hairstyles for women over 60.

It’s flu season once again and, as a woman over 60, you may be wondering if you should get a flu shot this year. Will the vaccine be effective? Is the flu shot necessary? Could the vaccine give me the flu?
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.

One of the best things about running Sixty and Me is that I get to interview so many fascinating people.

Like so many things in life, dating is a numbers game. But, as we get a little older it sometimes feels like the odds are tipped against us! There is good news though. In the last few years, companies have started to realize that there is a huge opportunity to help people over 50 to find partners and have opened senior dating sites just for us.

Many of us love to travel, but we don’t like the hassles that can come with it. Travel can involve long days, unexpected delays, missed connections and long lines at security checkpoints. Days spent in transit can leave us feeling frustrated and exhausted.
Cruising always takes me on a journey of self-discovery and transformation. Those first few hours after boarding, settling down and unpacking, soon transport me to a world that touches all my senses.

During my first year of self-employment I earned $13,000. I lived on ramen noodles and peanut butter and turned down social outings because I couldn’t afford a glass of wine. It was one of the best years of my life.
It’s become very common for the 60+ crowd to finally carve out the time to begin the home business they were afraid to try in their younger years or to monetize a hobby or passion. Very likely, they will be working from home, and as exciting as this is, there are a few things to be wary of.

Facebook accounts have been hacked. Facebook has been used to target the election. Facebook advertisers have your data. According to Omnicore stats, 62% of online seniors aged 65+ are on Facebook.
Some months ago, I wrote an article about aging well which garnered some intriguing responses. One woman wrote, not without some wry humor, that she had gotten encouragement because she “simply HATED being 67.”
I thought, but didn’t write back, “Well, consider the options.”
Simplifying, downsizing, decluttering… these topics seem to be very popular right now. Why is this such an issue for so many people?

There’s a saying I’d like to explore with you: “Believe you can or believe you can’t, either way you’re right.” It points to the importance of confidence and positive self-belief in accomplishing our goals at any age, but more so in the years after 60. The challenge is maintaining that confidence through tough times.
