This time of year so often seems to fly by for most of us, but perhaps not so fast for Baby Boomers who are alone. The many office and neighborhood parties, family visits, shopping, and tree lighting ceremonies can be difficult for someone who is alone for the first time in years. Many of our Baby Boomer friends and family members are struggling to keep the joy of the holiday season while their minds are full of thoughts and memories of a loved one who has recently passed on. It’s very difficult to keep a smile on your face when… Read more.

By Kathi Casey. Today, when I was pondering my daily gratitudes, I began thinking about synchronistic events and how they arrive in our lives at just the right moment. Have you ever noticed that now and again someone comes along who truly inspires everyone around them and brings renewed enthusiasm into all of our lives? A friend of mine has done exactly that recently and I want to share her story with you. Feel free to share it with anyone else who may need a little bit of inspiration as well. Jill had been obese and diabetic for her entire… Read more.
By Kathi Casey. Insomnia is rampant among those over 40. Are you wishing that someone had told you about this before you got here, so that you could have stocked up on your sleep in your 30’s? If you are one of the 20 million Americans who feel that it’s become “the norm” as well as a frequent topic of conversation at parties and events, that in this day and age it’s impossible for anyone over 40 to get a good night’s sleep, help is here! All the experts tell us that we need 7 – 8 hours of sleep at night,… Read more.

When I looked up what’s going on in the world in order to write a relevant article, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the first week of August has been designated as “National Simplify Your Life Week.” Now, that’s a timely subject!

He’s known as an “out of the box” thinker and he certainly used this gift to find a unique way to help those affected by cancer! About three years ago, Ned lost his best friend from… Read more.
By Kathi Casey. Today I’d like to talk about keeping our hearts healthy and vital for many years to come. Heart disease is the deadliest health issue for both women and men in the United States, yet it’s one of the most preventable diseases there is! That’s just crazy. So here are a couple of easy ways to keep your heart healthy… First, don’t forget to laugh! Laughter is the best medicine and as adults we simply don’t laugh enough. I read somewhere that children laugh about 70% of the time, and adults only 7%. Wow! As a child, I… Read more.
I would let my children and grandchildren know that everything in life is by choice. When we wake up feeling a little tired, or “get up on the wrong side of the bed”, we can choose to smile and reach for a shining moment from our past or a dream of the future that excites us, and then keep that thought in the back of our minds all day. We can choose to feel joy until we once again, gratefully sink into our lovely bed at the end of another day and sleep soundly in the knowledge that today was… Read more.
