Happy Friday! It has been a fun week of talking fashion and confidence, so I thought we might end the week with News for Women of A Certain Age, where I curate headlines I believe you will find interesting! Remember though, when reading health related stories, to talk with your doctor if something resonates with you. Health decisions should always go into a conversation with your medical representatives.
So grab your coffee or tea, and let’s get going.
Let’s start with a topic that is near and dear to my heart. This article from INC titled, THIS MINDSET WIL HELP YOU LIVE 15 PERCENT LONGER, A NEW HARVARD STUDY OF 70,000 PEOPLE SAYS just captured me immediately. Let me know what you think!
My husband has arthritis and I watch article like this next one from Livestrong….PROTEIN & ARTHRITIS. It might help someone in this audience
My husband may have arthritis, but I have the disease of too much junk in the trunk. I have been working on it more lately in the gym and also got a stand up desk for work…since both of my jobs are sitting at a computer…sometimes all day and night. These are good exercises and can be done at home…check out 11 Butt Exercises That Trainers Want You To Do to Shape and Strengthen Your Weak Glutes.
Now, let’s talk about strengthening your mind. I work daily on a research university campus and you would be amazed at how many over 50 have returned to school. My husband obtained his MBA in his late 50s and liked it so much, that he is an avid online student now. So, Business Insider captured my eye with this story: I went back to college as a 50-year-old. These were the most surprising things I had to adjust to.
I think many of us here are older than 50, but this article has some good advice and it is never too late to take it. From The Ladders: THINGS TO MASTER BEFORE TURNING 50.
I love ending with this story. I have squirrels in my backyard and though they can be destructive at times, I really love to watch them. So, when I saw this photographer that is in the story here, it kind of melted my heart. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did…from Fox News, A PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES A MOMENT ‘CURIOUS SQUIRREL’ STOPS TO SMELL A FLOWER.
Have a great end to your week, and please comment on any or all of these stories. Tomorrow is WOULD YOU WEAR IT with my friend, Jennifer, and Sunday I have a very special giveaway for you from the Foxcroft Collection…someone here is going to be very happy when you win!
