As we grow older, we become calmer and more obliging to others in our frailty, or that is what society says we are supposed to do, right? But what if you don’t want to do that? What if you want to carry on raising hell, speaking your mind, and dancing to the beat of your own drum? Well, good for you, I say, and keep reading for some suggestions on how to be your best self, no matter how many miles you have on the clock.
Your Age is Your Business
No one needs to know exactly how old you are, not because there is anything wrong with that but because it doesn’t define you. That means standing at the bus stop saying, “I’m, 87, you know!” to passing strangers is out, and taking action to feel as good as you ever did is on.
The action you take, of course, is up to you; it’s your body after all. You may want to explore the different types of hearing aids on the market so you can get the full benefit at the next rock concert you go to. Why not take up a new physical activity that gets the blood pumping and the oxygen flowing around your system? You may want to rock out and buy the latest red lipstick to wear on your next night out with the girls, or even decide that a slinky little black dress is the perfect outfit for your next date with your partner. Just don’t let anyone tell you that you are too old for that! As your age is not your identity, and you can choose to be however you want.
Sex Doesn’t Stop At 60
Being intimate is a valuable and enjoyable part of life. That means it is something to make an effort to keep doing no matter what our age. Luckily, more and more people are realizing this now, and there is some great advice on intimate relations for the over 60’s you can read to help you keep having fun in the bedroom.
Keep Following Your Passions
Retirement can be a tough time for a lot of us ladies. When women step away from the workplace, and the children are grown, the purpose and drive that we have relied on can seem to dissipate with it. However, it can really help to use the time you gain in retirement to follow your other passion in life. The things that perhaps you had always wanted to do but never had time when you were working and raising a family.
Maybe you will go back to college and get that art degree? Perhaps you will dedicate some of your free time to working to preserve the natural environment where you live? Maybe you can help others by reading to the kids at the local school or tutoring adults in English or another language? The possibilities are truly endless, so embrace this later stage in life by picking some meaningful goals to work on.
