I Never Thought I Would Do This… (Big News from Sixty and Me!)

Over the last several years, I have tried hard to make most of our content free to the community. But, since Sixty and Me is also a business, I have had to charge for a few things… like our gentle yoga DVDs. Well, today, I have some good news. I have decided to make all of our yoga videos completely FREE on YouTube. No catch. No fees. No password. Just life-changing yoga practices designed for women like us. This decision is going to cost me money, but, I just want to make a difference in the world. So, I’m happy to do this for you. I only have one favor to ask. If you like the videos, please share them with your friends. Let’s change the world together! Click the link below to watch the first video.

10 Ways Travel Broadens Your Perspective After 60

When I was a young woman, alone and ready for adventure, I picked up my backpack and boarded a plane for India. I didn’t come back for months. In some ways, I never came back. But, no matter how much the travel of my youth influenced me, it doesn’t compare to the way that travel in my 60s (and now 70s) makes me feel. Perhaps I’m just a little wiser. Or maybe, I am finally able to slow down and enjoy the journey. But, for whatever reason, traveling as an older solo woman is liberating and powerful. So, in today’s video, I would like to share some thoughts on how travel broadens your perspective at any age. Have you taken any trips lately that helped you to see the world in a different way? Do you agree that travel broadens your perspective at any age?

And, yet, so few of you realize just how wonderful you have become after 60+ years on this planet. So, in today’s video, I would like to invite you to recognize (and accept!) who you have become! What is one thing that you love about the person you have become over the last 6+ decades? What do you wish others saw in you more?

Are You Taking Yourself Too Seriously? Maybe it’s Time to Lighten Up?

Life is serious stuff. We worry about family, money, our health, our partners, the world and a myriad of other concerns. When we reach our 60s, our concerns don’t go away… but, today, I want to argue that, at the very least, we can stop taking *ourselves* quite so seriously. When we do, the other troubles that enter our minds won’t seem quite as bad. Do you remember to giggle at yourself once in a while? Do you ever find yourself talking life (or yourself) too seriously?
