Stuck Inside this Winter? 5 Fun Ways to Stay Active

I love so many things about winter. I love the traditions and social activities. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

If, like me, you are feeling a little trapped in your home this winter, you will enjoy today’s video. In it, I offer 5 fun and simple ways to stay active, even if you are stuck inside.

Let’s Start 2018 with Gratitude

By the time we reach our 60s, most of us have had complex lives, filled with successes and failures, ups and downs. But, no matter how we came to be where we are today, we can still be grateful for the good in our lives. As we enter 2018, let’s embrace gratitude together. Let’s be grateful for the people in our lives. Let’s learn to appreciate what we have rather than what we want. Let’s live with positivity and grace in a world that seems chaotic and uncertain.

Will Older Women One Day Rule the World?

In today’s youth-obsessed culture, it’s easy to forget that older women are one of the most powerful groups – economically, politically and socially. As the founder of Sixty and Me, I believe in our collective power. I know that we can and will continue to make the world a better place. So, with this in mind, I was happy to hear about a new book called “The Longevity Economy” by Joe Coughlin. In his book, Joe argues that women our age will one day rule the world! This is a fascinating topic for me and I’d love to hear what you think! Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today.

Shop Less to Feel Like a Millionaire in 2018?

So, today, I want to share an antidote from one of our bloggers. She claims that, far from making you feel poorer, shopping less can make you feel like a millionaire.

Let’s Find Our Voices Again

I don’t know about you, but, as a younger woman, standing up for causes that I believed in came naturally to me. But, as I got a little older, like many women, I found myself caring more about the potential consequences of my words for myself and my family. In other words, I learned to keep my opinions to myself. Now, as I approach my 70s, I finally have the strength to raise my voice again. So, today, I would like to talk about the importance of women our age staying engaged, politically and socially. Regardless of whether we agree with each other, let’s celebrate our right to share our opinions. Let’s find our voices again! Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.
