About

Get in a room with a bunch of baby boomers and they start talking about their health, their memory, their retirement account, their grandchildren, children, and the old days. I am in my late 50’s and I still try to do all of the physical things that I did ten, twenty years ago. I can still do them but I pay for it in aches and pains. I am slower, less agile, and it makes me feel older, but not old. We joke with each other about our inability to find words, keys, and the lists that we make so we won’t forget.

Over the years, I have seen my parents gain weight, become immobile enough that they cannot get around to do the things that they always wanted to do. Hence, I began eating less meat, more vegetables, and learning about ways to stay mentally and physically healthy enough to never miss out on things because I have not taken care of myself.  Because of all the physically active things that I have done over the years (mountain biking, farming, rowing, kayaking, hiking, road biking, etc)  that have left me with arthritis, soft tissue aches and pains, as well as a recent rotator cuff tear, I regularly get chiropractor and massage treatments. I have tried to learn as much as I can about holistic remedies and treatments that can help me maintain my quality of life.

This blog is my way to share ideas, thoughts, and up to date research and news that will help boomers, like me, get a better handle on their financial health, learn more about maintaining their menatal and physical quality of life. More importantly, how to age gracefully and wisely. Each of us comes from a different place and has valuable experiences and knowledge that can help others. Please use this space to share,  discuss, and debate issues brought up by my posts.
