Mornings with Sixty and Me

Catch up on what’s new in the world and talk with other women like you.

How to Get More from Your Next Doctor’s Visit

One of the most important meetings that you can ever have is an appointment with your doctor. So, it’s surprising that so few of us prepare for this important event. It’s almost as if we see ourselves a passive observers, ready to follow the instructions of our healthcare professionals without really understanding them. In reality, there are many things that we can do to prepare for – and get more from – our trips to the doctor. In her latest post for Sixty and Me, Molly Stevens, a nurse by profession, shares a few ideas for having a successful trip to the doctor. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.

How to Make the World a Better Place by Downsizing and Recycling

Like many women in our community, I have spent quite a bit of time over the last decade reorganizing and, where possible, downsizing.

Along the way, I have learned that downsizing is not really about saying “no” to the things we don’t need. It is about saying “yes” to the things that really matter.

Today, I want to talk about one aspect of downsizing that you may not have thought about – how to recycle and do good for others as you reorganize your life.

Dealing with Social Isolation

For most of our lives, we were surrounded by other people. At work, our sense of purpose was defined, at least in part, by the recognition of our peers. At home, many of us faced – and embraced – the chaos of family life. Only occasionally did we find a few precious moments to sit in total silence, reading a book, or simply thinking.

Then, in retirement (or semi-retirement) things started to change. Many of us have started to find that our days are quieter than we expected them to be. Without the social bonds that we relied on in our past, some of us are even feeling a little socially isolated.

So, today, I would like to share some tips from your Sixty and Me sisters on how to stay socially connected in your 60s or better. I hope you find them useful!  Read More

How Do You Like to Relax?

Contrary to popular belief, life in your 60s isn’t necessarily quiet or relaxing. In fact, if you are like me, you probably find your days filled with activities, people and hobbies. In addition to being as busy as ever, many of us are also facing financial, social or physical stresses. So, at our age, it’s more important than ever to take time to relax.

Today, I want to share some suggestions for how to take it easy, especially with you feel a little stressed out. I’d also love to hear how you relax.

How do you like to relax? Do you love to listen to music? Or, do you perhaps like to spend time in your garden? Are you the kind of person who loves to curl up on the sofa with a good book? Or do you prefer relaxing with your friends and family?
