One of my favorite mantras is, “Life Is Challenging but You Have to Get Dressed.”
When you factor in vertical challenges, that makes it even more difficult. While you may not be able to change the cards you were dealt, the right clothing and accessories can actually help you appear taller than you are.
Summer is full of fun outdoor events. Picnics and lunches. Brunches and garden parties. Casual gatherings that make summer such an exciting, enjoyable season.
Kimono jackets can be the perfect topper for a woman of any age! I’ve seen them at both retail and online stores and they are available in so many varieties.
In case you hadn’t noticed white is “in” this year. We’ve seen it everywhere from the runway to the Royals. It’s been worn by religious figures to representatives of both sides of the US political arena. It’s been suggested that white is the color of purity and signifies loftiness. This implies that the wearer exists on an elevated plane. Think, Mother Teresa.

I believe that it’s always better to get nutrients from the food that we eat rather than from supplements.
This summer, devastating hurricanes tore up the Caribbean, drenched Texas and chewed through the entire state of Florida. Harvey, Irma and Maria aren’t the newsmakers they were just weeks ago, but the effects of these storms have changed lives.
What if I told you there was an incredibly tasty, anti-aging and anti-wrinkle, healthy chocolate pudding that is dairy-free, healthy, gluten-free and… did I mention healthy???
For the last half year, when walking from the parking lot to my office building, I would hop on a curb alongside a lawn and walk it as if it were a balance beam. It does look weird and gets me a fair share of puzzled glances. But I persist. Let me tell you why.

I just got back to the hotel from another wonderful day in Prague. Over the last week, I really have caught the travel bug again. Ironically, as you may notice in today’s video, I also caught a nasty cold, but, that’s another story.
One of my favorite things about traveling is getting to dig deeper into the unique culture and history of the places that I visit. There’s nothing wrong with visiting a place to relax. But, for a truly meaningful experience, I find that nothing beats combining learning with travel.
As I sit here in my little 4-person couchette on the train from Zurich to Prague, I am reminded of everything that I love about travel. For starters, I just spent the last several hours with two lovely ladies, who shared their life stories and plans for the future.
“She thought I was crazy.” That was Peggy Johnston’s daughter’s reaction when she learned that her mother was selling her home, putting all of her worldly possessions into storage and going on an African safari with Road Scholar.

Lots of women over 60 are looking for ways to make money, save more money for retirement, or perhaps start a new career. Unfortunately, age discrimination is all too real. Lots of people “of a certain age” get passed over for opportunities at work, forced into early retirement, or denied interviews for jobs that they’re clearly qualified for.
If you feel like you’re being held back in your career by the unfairness of the youth-obsessed corporate world, or if you don’t feel valued at your company, or if you’re looking for a new way to add value and earn income and feel connected, perhaps you should try freelance writing.
As we approach retirement, it’s natural to think about how we are going to support ourselves in the decades ahead. Starting a business is an option, but, most of us don’t know where to start. In addition, we are constantly exposed to images of 20-something entrepreneurs succeeding. If the media is to be believed, older entrepreneurs don’t stand a chance. Or do they?
What is retirement planning? It’s a simple question, right? Doesn’t everyone know that getting ready for retirement is all about putting enough money away so that we can live comfortably on our investments? At least, that’s what we have been told. For decades, our employers have reminded us to max out our 401K.
When it comes to money, us Baby Boomers are in an interesting position. On the one hand, we hear over and over again that we are the “wealthiest generation in U.S. history.” On the other hand, the great majority of us are simply not prepared for retirement.

You’ve just finished that last book you picked up from the library, and wow, it was a good one. The story was riveting, the language poetic and the characters so well-developed you feel as though you want to go meet them for tea.
Recently, I spent a week at the house of my 86-year-old mother. I was there to help her to clear out her home in preparation for an imminent move to an independent living facility.
Let the beauty we love
be what we do.
There are a million ways to kneel
And kiss the ground.
There are so many great things about being a woman of this certain age – what stretches out in front of us are our most creative years.
It’s lovely to have a guest room in your home, but it can easily turn into yet another place to store things you rarely or never use.

It’s hard to get to retirement age without having been wronged or hurt at some time in our life. No matter the infraction, some individuals can forgive easily and move on with their life. But there are others of us who continue to hold a grudge.
Smiling contributes significantly to your happiness, health and longevity, so the research tells us.
Yeah, right, I’m thinking, when my dance teacher commands us to “Smile!” even as I am contorting my body into a completely unnatural position. If this choreography doesn’t kill me first – sure, I’ll smile!
Mindfulness is front page news. A recent TIME Magazine cover announced “The Mindful Revolution: the Science of Finding Focus in a Stressed-out, Multitasking Culture.”
