Yes, There is a Better Way to Start a Book Club

In reality, many book clubs end up turning into wine-filled, argument-starting messes. The good news is that there is a better way to start a book club. In her latest article for Sixty and Me, Pat Skene explains how to start a book club that isn’t stressful or complicated. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.

Avoiding the New Year’s Guilt Trap

Avoiding the New Year’s Guilt Trap

One of the reasons that I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions is that they tend to cause us to be too hard on ourselves. For example, when you say that your goal is to lose weight this year, it is usually because you feel like you failed at maintaining a healthy weight the year before. Today, I want to offer an alternative approach to setting goals from one of our guest bloggers, Sheryl Nicholson. Instead of starting with our failures, she suggests that we celebrate our successes from the last year. This is the best starting point, in her opinion, for setting productive goals in the future. 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. Your support means so much to me! Read More
