  • Need Balance in Your Life? Check You Wellness...
    by Sixty and Me on 2022-05-17 at 21:46

    I created the short video below to describe the six dimensions of wellness as “spokes” on a wheel, and ask you draw your personal wellness wheel based on how many “deposits” you make into each dimension. The video demonstrates the contributions each dimension of wellness is making to your overall health – more deposits create bigger, and fewer deposits create smaller, spokes. Are some dimensions carrying most of the load? Is your wheel lopsided or completely missing a spoke […]

  • 7 Fabulous Accessories That Add Flair and Style...
    by Sixty and Me on 2022-05-17 at 21:46

    I was blessed with a mother who could take a scarf and a couple of cheap bangles and turn an inexpensive outfit into a fashion statement. It was a knack she acquired by watching her aunties; women from the 1920s! It’s a knack that has been handed down. We are all women who love our accessories. But, we all reach an age at which we can no longer just throw on a piece of jewellery or scarf to get the stunning look we’re after. It takes planning and coordination to achieve the “Less is […]

    When was the last time you checked your Blood Pressure? Do you understand the importance of knowing your blood pressure stats and regularly checking them? High Blood pressure (hypertension) is still the single largest risk factor for stroke and it can be prevented. 4.7 Million Australians live with High Blood pressure but you can do something about it. Medication and/or lifestyle changes can help to keep blood pressure under control. Recently, I went to the Doctor for my annual checkup and […]

    by Semi-Retire Plan on 2022-05-17 at 19:07

    Isn’t it a parent’s dream to have their kids learning and having fun, all for free? With all the money parents spend on activities, it’s nice to know that there really are free games for fun and educational kids. Many free games for kids are available that can help children develop similar skills to those with paid activities. Best of all, they don’t all require parents to taxi their children around town, racing to get them to the next event. The following is a list of free […]

  • Pre-Diabetes can be Reversed - Learn How
    by Baby Boomer Retirement on 2022-05-17 at 18:37

    According to the Centers for Disease Control, about 88 million American adults (or about one-third) have pre-diabetes. The CDC estimates that approximately 84 percent of them do not even know they have it!. Pre-diabetes is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.  It is a dangerous condition because, in about 70 percent of cases, it develops into Type 2 diabetes, which can damage your blood vessels and lead to other health […]

  • 5 New Goals to Set for a Better Summer
    by Sixty and Me on 2022-05-17 at 18:37

    If you’re like me, the time between Memorial Day and Labor Day can be a blur. Even if you spent the first three-day weekend of the summer planning for a long, relaxing and life-changing vacation, before you know it, school is back in session, and you don’t have much to show for it all. With a bit more attention to how you’d really like to feel come early September, this year can be different. Do Something You’ve Been Putting Off Is there something fun, scary, tedious, […]

    by Everything Zoomer on 2022-05-17 at 07:32

    We all know the population of Canada, and indeed the entire Western world, is aging. But the recent census results still came as a shock. Statistics Canada reports that 19 per cent of our population is now age 65 or older. That’s more than seven...

  • Care Conversations – When and How to Have Them
    by Sixty and Me on 2022-05-17 at 00:29

    Having care conversations about preparing for aging with mom or dad can be challenging. Heck, having them with a spouse is not a breeze either. Topics like finances, insurance, wills, estate planning, living situations, care and treatment plans are tough. Yet, the sooner you have them, the better. The Best Time Is… A crisis is the exact wrong time to solve a situation. You react emotionally. You make wrong decisions and unscrupulous people take advantage of the situation. You see this, […]

  • A Simple Way to Deal with Stress – Whether...
    by Sixty and Me on 2022-05-16 at 21:19

    Stress: is there any feeling that’s better at finding a way in, no matter where you are or what you’re doing? As human conditions go, it’s like the sand that somehow gets into everything at your otherwise-perfect beach picnic. If only, like that sand, the effects of stress were no more than a bit irritating. As we all know, stress can leave us desperate, broken, or worse. Long, long ago, I lived in idyllic Zambia with my first husband. Almost every day, we woke up to sunshine and […]

  • Dealing with the Death of a Spouse – Should We...
    by Sixty and Me on 2022-05-16 at 21:19

    I write often about grieving and the feelings one can experience when they are in the throes of it. One can never know what it’s like to be in the grip of pain after the loss of a spouse or a loved one unless they have experienced such a loss. Should We Suffer Forever After the Death of a Spouse? Many, in the beginning, feel that the pain is now so much a part of them that to give it up would somehow be a betrayal to the lost spouse. So, they suffer quietly. Or, they stuff it away […]

  • How Curiosity Can Supercharge Your Life After 60
    by Sixty and Me on 2022-05-16 at 18:38

    Sometimes, depending on someone’s culture or upbringing, curiosity can take on a negative meaning, such as being intrusive. It can also, however, be seen as a positive trait, meaning awareness, observance or seeking new information. With all the advice out there for women on “how to be attractive/happy/successful,” curiosity may sometimes be an undervalued asset. Curiosity Is Not Just for Little Kids Look at your grandkids or younger relatives. The world is all new to them. They […]

  • My Michael Phelps Moment: Why I’m a Yoga Convert
    by Better After 50 Magazine | An Online Magazine for Women Over 50 on 2022-05-16 at 11:58

    I got a compliment the other day that still has my head spinning. It wasn’t about my appearance or my kids or my blog. It was about my yoga. All my instructor said was: “Your practice is looking so much better. Your feet, your legs…it’s a big jump up from where you were.” Not exactly: “Wow! You’re the yoga equivalent of Michael Phelps! We’d like to feature you in London 2012!” But boy was I in seventh heaven. Let’s start with the fact that I have a crush on […]

  • Happily, My Marriage Wasn’t Ever After
    by Better After 50 Magazine | An Online Magazine for Women Over 50 on 2022-05-16 at 11:58

    Fuck Disney. Those old princess movies closing with “and they lived happily ever after” taught us that conquering the witches and scaling castle walls were the hard parts. Where was the movie when the prince said, “ah, Babe? I love you and all that, and I still want you in my life, but I think I’m done with this. Peace out!” At the end of my marriage, my therapist said, “relationships are finite. That chapter is over.” Similarly, my astrologist said, “the purpose of your […]

  • Sometimes You Just Gotta Rant
    by Better After 50 Magazine | An Online Magazine for Women Over 50 on 2022-05-16 at 11:58

    Don’t mess with me.  I’m out of sorts with my grouchy pants on and I’m not apologizing. The last four weeks have been a whirl of sadness, travel, work, and joy. I’ve lost any ability to pivot for extra events. I’ve been smiling so hard my brain hurts from keeping my mouth shut. My Brother-in-Law did not plan to die, but that doesn’t make me less mad about it. The four of us gathered, three supporting my sister as she navigated the impossible. Of course, we started noodling each […]

    Our world is opening, and people are traveling again. Some may choose to hop on a plane, train, or bus and explore new territory.

    “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”– Babe Ruth.
