Retirement is Awful! Retirement is Awesome! :)

Like so many things in life, retirement can be as wonderful (or as terrible) of an experience as we let it be. I’m not talking about the practical aspects of life after retirement. I’m talking about how our mindset impacts our experience in retirement. If you have been feeling a bit apprehensive about retirement… or are already retired and are having a little trouble getting into a positive groove, today’s video is for you! How would you describe your retirement experience in a few words? Is retirement awful? Or amazing? Or a little of both?

Does Hardship Make Us Wiser?

We talk a lot about how fantastic life after 60 can be… and most of the time, it IS! But, there is no denying that life after 60 comes with its share of hardships. Our social circumstances change, we start to lose our loved ones and many of us struggle with money. So, today, I want to talk about the silver-lining of hardship… the fact that it can make us stronger and wiser, especially after 60. Do you think that hardship can make us stronger and wiser? Why or why not? Did you experience a difficult situation recently that taught you an important lesson? Which one?

Finding Resilience: Advice from an 80-Year-Old Model and Cancer Survivor

When I spoke with Valerie Ramsey a few days ago, I found her to be inspiring, fascinating and big-hearted. And, judging from the 13,000 views that our first interview received in just 2 days, many of you did too! So, I thought that it would be fun to sit down with her again for another chat… this time about finding resilience at any age. I hope that you enjoy this interview. I sure had fun taping it! What do you do when the going gets tough? What advice would you give to the women in our community who are going through difficult times right now?

You Won’t Believe What’s on Our Sister Sites (Video Update from Margaret)

One of the wonderful things about our community is that it is filled with women of all backgrounds and cultures, passions and interests. At the same time, as Sixty and Me has grown, it has become increasingly difficult to cover every single topic. So, several months ago, we launched 3 sister sites – Retire Different, Life After Death and She Cruises to go into the topics of retirement, spirituality and travel in more depth. In today’s video, I’d like to share the latest from each of these sites. I hope that you will make at least one of them a part of your daily routine. Have you visited any of our sister sites? Which one and what did you think? Are there any other topics that you feel deserve special treatment… or perhaps their own website and community?

Give Your Aging Brain a Boost with… Reading and Writing?

When it comes to keeping your aging brain healthy, there are plenty of companies that are willing to take your money. Supplement companies tell us that pills and potions will keep us sharp. Video game companies swear that just 20-minutes a day with their “brain games” is what we need. There are even gyms that combine mental and physical exercises for older adults. Actually, this last one is probably a good idea! In any case, today, I want to talk about something simple (and FREE) that each of us can do every day to give our brains a boost. That’s right, I’m talking about good old-fashioned reading and writing. I hope that you enjoy today’s video! What are you doing to keep your brain healthy? Do you follow a special diet? Play brain games? Read? Write? Stay social?
