Care for Yourself Long Term

We’ve been spotlighting self-care, but the reality of being a Third Ager is that we need to think about how to take care of ourselves when we need help. Most of us probably avoid this conversation, but do you want to be worried how you’re going to pay for it? That’s why we’re looking at providing peace of mind for yourself and your family with long-term care insurance. And get a clear idea on what you need for retirement to be financially free. Let’s focus on our financial self-care.

Self-care with the Tiny Buddha

Do you want in on a little secret?

Maintaining daily Self-care practice is one of the key factors in expansive aging. Self-care isn’t just for ladies; we’ve made a list of must-have self-care products for everyone.

Self-care doesn’t have to be an extravagant task that takes hours or your time. Think of self-care more as tiny habits that you do each day to take better care of yourself. After all, you deserve the best version of YOU possible. Improve your health with these self-care ideas from the Tiny Buddha that can help your mind, body, and soul.

Aging in Place is Self-Care

Did you know there are seven pillars to self-care? Each pillar touches on self-care and aging in place. Staying in your home for the next 20-plus years doesn’t have to be an unreachable dream, but you may need to reach out for help occasionally. Asking for help doesn’t make us weak; I would argue it makes us stronger. The number of services available to help seems to grow by the year. Technology, whether we embrace it or not, can make living in your home longer easier for you.

Self care is for you!

Live your best life with self-care that betters your energy and overall health. Self-care doesn’t have to be limited to bubble baths and manicures. It can also include slowing down and focusing on your mental health. You can change your entire life by learning how to bring calmness into your life. Colder weather often lets you focus more on internal reflection; with practical insights from the book The Self-Care Toolkit, you can turn the winter blues into something positive. Wellness retreats can help reset and boost your mental health. Discover relaxing retreats and hot springs that will leave you rejuvenated and ready to tackle the goals you have for yourself in the years to come.

Memories in Motion

The holidays are right around the corner. Who is ready to get moving? Make memories with your family and friends by staying active this holiday season. Staying active doesn’t have to be complicated. If you aim to get in 10,00 steps per day, you can lower the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers. Walking and listening to Podcasts has become one of my favorite things. I made a list of three podcasts that go great with walking. Can you imagine taking a 15-year break from doing what you love? That’s exactly what Jane Fonda did. That break was just what she needed, because she came back even stronger with a passion for an active fulfilling third-age life!

We each grow older every day, and growing older is a gift. What better way to spend our third age than enjoying every moment we can? Thankfully, the movie industry has become hip with the changing trends and has released a few good Rom-Coms lately. Movies like “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” have added some extra fun to my life.
