We all acquire lumps and bumps and wobbly bits as we become women of a certain age.
By the time we are 50, we start feeling and seeing the effects of gravity and the loss of elasticity in our skin. Even thin people lose this elasticity. Pull the skin on the back of your hand; it no longer bounces back into shape – and it happens all over your body.
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.

Type 2 diabetes is on the rise. The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 1 in 11 (425 million) adults worldwide have diabetes. They also say that 1 in 2 adults with diabetes are undiagnosed (212 million).
This article complements a previous one I recently wrote where we discussed the definition of frailty, how it affects us as we age and the very important symptom of muscle mass loss.
Do you yearn for more physical activity in your life – perhaps a sport from your youth? You may have a secret passion for something you have not yet tried. We still have opportunities, so why not explore them?
We experience stress and frustration every day, but if it overwhelms us, we end up debilitated. Stress takes a toll on our psyche and bodies, especially as we approach our later years.

I have always loved to travel. I experienced my first wild and wonderful Atlantic crossing, on the Queen Elizabeth, when I was only 8-years-old.
Setting aside the usual aging stereotypes, it’s clear that women over 60 love to travel. We love to explore the world and find new adventures. We love embracing new cultures and meeting new people.
But, this raises an interesting question. What is our favorite way to travel? Do the majority of us like to fly to exotic destinations? Or, would most of us prefer to travel by train?
As I was packing for a short work trip recently, I pulled out a bright orange plastic Sainsbury’s bag that I had from my last trip to London. It brought back such a flood of great memories that you would have thought it was a priceless memento.
Is it still possible to find amazing senior travel discounts? This was the question that I posed to train expert, Mark Smith during our last interview. After all, if anyone would know how to find the best travel deals, it’s Mark.

Why on Earth would you want to tell advertising agencies how to talk to you? Isn’t marketing to baby boomers something that only companies who want to sell something should care about? Absolutely not!
Do you suffer from financial shame?
I ask this question because financial shame is far more common than most of us would like to admit. Everyone talks about how financially successful baby boomers are, but, this is just part of the story. Like every generation, we are struggling after the Great Recession.
Your husband may be out of the picture, but his Social Security could still be a part of your life. Whether you’re widowed or divorced, U.S. law may allow you to collect benefits based upon your former spouse’s work history.

The day we close on a new house, we start looking forward to our final payment. Over the years our savings build up and retirement is in the not-so-distant future. It seems like the perfect time to pay off our mortgage and live debt-free, but is this a good idea? Join us in discussion with financial expert Pam Krueger who explains why this decision may or may not be to your advantage. Enjoy the show!
I live in the tropical jungle and dream of cities and cold. A friend lives in an Edwardian, Edinburgh townhouse and dreams of a chic, modern glass dwelling at the beach.

The media talks a lot about the health benefits of living an active and full life. They say having a purpose in life is the key to positive aging, but are you stuck trying to find your purpose?
All day long, you make decisions – some large, some small. Each one of them reflects the things that you feel are important. What is the basis for this or that decision? It’s something that may not be immediately apparent as you go about your day, dealing with events, people, circumstances.
One of the funny things about getting older is that you always feel younger on the inside. In my case, I sometimes feel like a 25-year-old in a 70-year-old’s body. How about you?
