Making Friends as an Adult is Tough – Journeywoman Can Help

Have you ever noticed how good and bad things in life move in cycles? The more out of shape you become, the less likely you are to go to the gym. The more TV you watch, the less you feel like getting out and exploring the world. The same is true for making friends as an adult in your 60s.

In reality, getting the most from life after 60 requires us to find ways to break the negative loops that we are stuck in. Read More

Life After 60 is a Dance – Don’t Stand in the Corner

For most of our lives, our choices are strongly influenced by others. Now, we finally have the opportunity make life after 60 anything we want it to be.

Unfortunately, many of us are still stuck with the habits that we formed during our 20s and 30s. We are used to life being something that happens “to us.” So, like little girls at our first school dance, we stand on the sidelines, waiting for someone to approach. Read More

Thanks Age UK for Helping Everyone to Make the Most of Later Life!

When you’re in your 50s, or even 60s, it’s hard to imagine what old age is really like. You start to get a feeling for it by watching your parents. Perhaps you even have a few aches and pains – emotional and physical – to deal with. But, for the most part, most baby boomers don’t consider themselves “old.” Most of us even have trouble seeing ourselves as “seniors,” even if we technically fall into this category according to our age.

4 Things Mature Models Teach Us About Beauty After 60

Of all of the people that I have interviewed for the Sixty and Me Show, Cindy Joseph is one of my favorites. Cindy is a mature model and the founder of Boom Cosmetics. She is undeniably beautiful, but, it is her personality and passion for life that I appreciated the most.

When I sat down to talk with Cindy, I expected the conversation to focus on how to find beauty after 60 in a practical sense – what to wear, how to apply makeup, etc. What we actually talked about was far more philosophical – and far more interesting. Read More
