Learning how to deal with stress is not a simple matter. After all, stress is different for every woman. Some find it easy to deal with complex problems, but are overwhelmed by tiny annoyances. Others constantly worry about everything, from finances to family.

As we get a little older, many of us find that we do not have the control over our lives that we once did. In addition, we live in a world that is much more difficult, demanding, and faster-paced than it ever was before. The good news is that there are things that we can do to reduce our stress after 60.

If you are looking for ways to manage your stress and find happiness after 60, this episode of the Sixty and Me Show is for you!

My guest expert on this topic is Dr. Dale Atkins. Dr. Dale is a well-known psychologist and relationship expert. In her practice and writing, she helps women to relieve their stress and find balance in lives. She is the author of several books, including “Sanity Savers, Tips for Women to Live a Balanced Life.”

Dr. Dale truly believes that…

We can find happiness when we learn how to manage stress

She encourages us to connect with our authentic selves, surround ourselves with positive people and make choices that lead to balance in our lives.

She urges women to take care of themselves, not just other people. She reminds us that we can be caring and compassionate to others, while still taking the time to make ourselves happy. Finding this balance is a critical ingredient on the journey to a stress free and empowered way of life. At times, we may have to let toxic people go. We may even have to be a little selfish in creating an environment that is positive and live affirming.
