Women should dress their age. Children should be seen and not heard. And men should bring home the bacon.
You’ve been invited to a casual dinner with friends. It’s going to be a great time. You love their company, and you enjoy laughing and chatting over good food and a few glasses of wine.
But what are you going to wear?
Say the word, “spa” and it conjures up lifestyles of the rich and famous.
There’s no denying that spas are extremely expensive. However, SPA, or “salute per aqua” is an ageless tradition dating back to Roman times. Honoring your health and well-being with body caring treatments should be a right of all human beings.
When it comes to taking care of your aging skin, it’s difficult to know where to turn for advice.
Sure, there are plenty of companies who would be more than happy to sell you their latest expensive cream, but, how do you know which ones actually work?

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.
Why should we care whether we take enough magnesium?
Have you noticed how many ads on television promote the use of products for bladder control problems? And do you realize that nearly all of these ads are directed at women, even though many men experience bladder leakage, too?
I’ve long been an active dreamer. My dreams are lengthy, plot-driven and very detailed. I nearly always remember them when I wake up.

Have you considered house sitting? We have been house sitting since 2014 and have had 34 assignments in Australia, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and France. Coming up next is Barbados for three months.
We walked to high school every day. Now we are recently retired with children grown and husbands gone. This week we’re going on a big walk together, in the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and Glacier. A girly road trip in the wild American west. No reservations, just adventure. Move over Thelma and Louise!
Have you tried travelling with grandchildren? If you haven’t, my husband and I heartily recommend the experience!
In recent years, multigenerational travel has become a growing market. An emerging subset based on this is grandparents and grandchildren are taking trips together, leaving the parents at home.

What are your biggest regrets? If you’re in your 60s, you may have regrets about your relationships. Or, perhaps you think that your choice of career was a mistake.
Well, talking with the other women in our community, I can promise you one thing – by the time you reach your 70s, one regret will drown out all others. I’m talking, of course, about how much you saved for retirement.
What do you think is the worst mistake that you can make at your retirement party? Having one too many glasses of champagne? Nope. Telling blue t-shirt Bob from accounting what you really thought of him all these years? Not even close! Having talked with hundreds of women in the Sixty and Me community, I can tell you that the worst mistake you can make at your retirement party is to tell people you are retiring.
If you have been following Sixty and Me for a while, you know that we always try to focus on the positive aspects of aging. This is because so many of the things that people consider “challenges” about getting older are actually “opportunities.”
At the same time, there is no denying that some aspects of getting older are simply horrible. For example, nothing can quite prepare you for losing the love of your life. Even if your husband is sick for a long time, it’s hard to imagine life without him… until you are forced to.

Spring is never quite the way you think it’s going to be. It starts off looking all mellow and warm, with gentle breezes, and then, turns cold and damp, with blustery wind that says, “I am not yet done telling you something.”
My friend Susan stared at me in disbelief. “You’re going to do what?” She was incredulous. “Go to Africa alone and climb Kilimanjaro at sixty?” She paused for a deep breath.
Location. Location. Location.
There’s an old saying: “What you see, depends on where you stand.” How often have I traveled the same road, only to notice something new?
Today, I wanted to share an interview I had with a millionaire who has just retired. I wanted us to see how she thinks, how she lives, what she does. I hope it gives you some perspective about your life, your retirement savings and your relationship to money.

Having been in a bad marriage for more than 30 years, I thought I was the biggest loser on the planet. I felt I was certainly not attractive and unappealing. I was overweight. I was not good at making money, but I was good at spending them. I wasn’t sexy at all and had zero sex appeal.
Have you ever asked anyone how their day is going and you get a two-hour answer? Not only that, but their answer leaves you feeling depleted and depressed?
