When we reach 50, we may notice quite a few changes on our face, and one of them may be the size of our pores. About six years ago, I remember looking at my nose and surrounding area…
Great style has nothing to do with age. It’s possible to enjoy style and fashion no matter how old you are. Sometimes, though, women who reach a “certain age” think that there’s little point in dressing up anymore. We might think, “Who would stop and bother to notice an older woman’s ensemble?”
For nearly every woman on earth, our hair is our crowning glory, no matter how old we are! As time passes, you might have noticed your hair undergoing changes, such as becoming thinner or not as shiny as it was before. Chances are that it has changed color as well!

Sometimes we learn what to do from someone who did it all wrong. I found myself realizing that I learned a lot about aging well from my mother. Sadly, the lessons are not ones I want to repeat.
Are you suffering from the Quarantine 15? If you haven’t yet heard of the term, it’s a bit like the “freshman 15,” only quarantine style. While there are certainly some people who don’t have enough to eat, others are packing…
Over half of the adult population 60 and above experience chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as any pain lasting longer than three months and is a very different experience for your brain than acute pain.
You know that awful moment when you’re standing in the middle of the living room, wondering, “Why am I here?” No, not the existential “Why am I here?” as in your reason for living, but the more ordinary “Why did I just walk into this room?”

Nothing hurts more than when a relationship has ended, especially when betrayal is involved in some way. When a man has lied to you and betrayed your trust, picking up the pieces and moving forward can feel daunting.
Help! I’m going on a first date. What should I do?
First dates can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never met, or have had minimal face-to-face contact. Relax, take a deep breath and follow some of these tips to help you through.
At some point in most monogamous, over-60 relationships, the issue of whether or not to live together comes up. During the 60s and 70s, moving in with your sweetheart was so common and freewheeling that it earned the dubious label, “shacking up.”

At my favorite Bangkok duck-soup stall, the owner lights up every time I say, “Aroy mak!” letting her know I thought the food was delicious. There’s a momentary connection we wouldn’t have had, had I said, “Delicious!” in English.
My first experience with traveling alone was in my 20s. I had just received a degree in comparative religion from the University of Colorado and exploring a mysterious land filled with thousands of gods and goddesses seemed like a great way to spend a few months.
We’ve all been there. We’re having a wonderful holiday making beautiful memories, but our bodies are just not cooperating. Indigestion, dehydration, and other digestive issues can put a damper on the best vacations…

I am a BIG believer in passive income. Why? Because, in today’s low interest environment, $1 in yearly passive income can be worth $20 in retirement savings (or more!) So, even if you have never thought of yourself as an entrepreneurial person…
When we think about retirement planning mistakes, most of us think of things like “not starting to save young enough,” “taking on too much debt,” “not buying a house,” or “not saving 10%.” What these mistakes have in common is that they are all things that we do (or don’t do!) in our 20s, 30s and 40s.
Airbnb’s shift to older demographics makes great business sense. After all, it’s no secret that Millennials are struggling to get onto the property ladder. If Airbnb wants to grow, it will need to convince new groups – from parents to grandparents to let strangers into their homes…

Like most American teenagers, I couldn’t wait to get my first driver’s license. That was more years ago than I care to admit, and I’ve had a love-hate relationship with driving ever since.
You’ve just finished that last book you picked up from the library, and wow, it was a good one. The story was riveting, the language poetic and the characters so well-developed you feel as though you want to go meet them for tea.
For some people, the pandemic has been a lesson in dealing with isolation. For others, it’s offered valuable alone time for reflection. For me, the silver lining has been that even after more than six decades on this planet…

The Heroine’s (or Hero’s) Journey is a recognizable framework. It’s been used in myths and stories throughout the ages and studied by scholars like Joseph Campbell. In a nutshell, a regular person leading an ordinary life unexpectedly…
As the pandemic drags on month after month, loneliness can tighten its cruel grip. For many, a sense of purpose is the primary weapon against loneliness, yet thanks to Covid-19, the usual sources of meaning and purpose…
It was my father who encouraged me to “write about it” when he gave me that first pink and turquoise diary when I was 10 years old. You know the kind, the ones with a little lock and key that hold a young girl’s many secrets…
I’ve been pacing like a cat in a Covid cage; isolated from others, hungry for interaction, desperate for relationship, and feeling the stress of being alone in a pandemic. Can you relate? Things get so quiet when you live alone. The cat meows…
