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.

We can all think of someone who could be described as a health nut. In some cases, they are a little nutty, but most often they are people who take their health very seriously and do everything they can to stay well.
Skin ages, along with the rest of our body, post-menopause. Women over 60 who want to age with vitality should know that there are things we can do to have and maintain healthy, radiant skin. The key lies in three crucial hormones that impact the way skin ages.
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.

If you are lucky enough to have grandkids, then you know how rewarding – and a frustrating – spending time with them can be. At their best, grandkids are a source of constant amusement and inspiration. At their worst, grandkids can turn a family outing into a family feud.
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.

One of my biggest fears for the baby boomer generation is that we have taken the concept of retirement too seriously. Many of us still believe in the notion that retirement should be a time for living off your savings, relaxing and “aging gracefully.”
Now, a new study by The Pew Charitable Trusts, says that the majority of baby boomers may finally be rethinking retirement. Most people surveyed said that they didn’t plan on retiring, in a traditional sense. Instead, they said that they wanted to continue working, either in their existing job or in a new career.
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.

Contributing to the common good is one of the very best reasons for becoming more tech savvy. It’s even better when your use of tech helps people in need (or the planet) at no cost to you, and via a process that makes your donations automatic and effortless. Once you set up your participation, you’ll ask yourself, “Why wouldn’t I do this?”
I recently had a wake-up call while preparing for Hurricane Irma. I live on an island, and the storm was on a path to our area. As my husband and I prepared our home, we realized that we may have to evacuate.
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.

A lot is being written these days about the joy we’re finding at 60 and in the decades beyond. But is this counter-intuitive? After all, our lifetime is winding down, we’re facing a lot of endings, and our next chapters are undeniably shorter than our first.
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.
