Improving Your Balance Could Save Your Life… Here’s How to Do it!

And, who is most at risk? That’s right! People over 65. So, today, I would like to offer some advice for how to improve your balance. I hope that it helps you to stay free and healthy longer.

Be the Queen of Your Inner World to Get More from Life in the Real World

At our age, it’s so easy to blame the outside world for our problems… or to give others too much credit for our genuine successes. The irony is that our relationship with ourselves often has more impact on the direction of our lives than our relationships with others. So, today, I would like to invite you to become the queen of your own inner-world. If you accomplish this, you will be well on your way to getting more from life in the real world.

Can We Think Ourselves Young (or Old?)

Over the last few decades, several studies have shown a surprising connection between our thoughts and how we feel the physical impacts of the aging process. Specifically, after years of research, many scientists now say that people who think of themselves as “old” actually feel the negative impacts of aging more strongly. So, today, I would like to talk about how to “think yourself young” (in the best possible sense of the word). I hope that you enjoy today’s video! Join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.

Making Extra Money Before (and in!) Retirement is Like Baking a Cake

Before I get to today’s topic, I just want to briefly apologize for not sending you any emails since Friday. We are making some improvements to the website right now, so, you may not hear from us every day this week. But, we’ll be back to our regular schedule soon. Thanks for your understanding! Now, on to today’s topic! Self-help gurus love to say things like “Do what you love and the money will follow.” The truth, as anyone who has actually tried to make money from their passions knows, is quite different. It’s not enough to love to do something. Just like baking a cake… you need more than ingredients; you need a recipe. Today, I’d like to share my own experience with this as well as what I have heard from all of you about making extra money before and during retirement.

How Much Has Changed in Your Life Since Your 50s? (For Me? A Lot!)

A couple of days ago, one of our amazing bloggers, Marcia Smalley, wrote an article that talked about the difference between being 50 and being 60. As I read her post, I found myself thinking about how much has changed in my life since I was 50. What I realized was that, while there are differences between the two ages, looking back at where I was then helped me to understand where I am now. So, today, I wanted to share a video that I recorded on this topic and ask you how much has changed in your life since you were 50. I think that this will be a fascinating discussion!
