Senior’s, high school? or older population?

Looking for some nice, informational pins as they related to senior’s on Pinterest . I really need to be very specific in my wording as the site I was sent to was definitely for Senior’s. Those graduating from high school. That was wonderful, but my brain was on the senior population.

Browsing this category I came across 2 informational pins about seniors, the aging population. One was labeled ARE you over 65? and the other one was titled, Lung Disease? Cancer? Heart Disease? Over 65? Both were promoted by the AD Council and sent me to very nice, educational website called Coronavirus (COVID-19) CDC FEMA,

All in all my searching was not a waste of time. I learned two things always be very specific#thorough#expressive when looking for a topic . Also re-educated myself on what is going on in this very tricky time in our world.

I hope everyone is staying safe and following the guidelines laid out for all of us. Take care and God Bless.

Have to add a bit about my Essential Oils, Come back and visit again.

Essential Oils and a quiz

Sharing blends with others has been very interesting. A wonderful adventure taken willingly and it has become a great learning experience. The benefits I have seen with some are great. They tell how their pain has improved and they also tell me when they have not had any results.

Talking further I find many people do not use their essential oils as they should or they use them once or twice and stop instead of working with the roller ball blend for a while to see if the essential oil blend will actually help you. Not cure you but help you feel better.

So here is my quiz. Perhaps you would not call it a quiz, but they are things I believe it is essential for you to know:

  • Can you get an irritation or reaction to an essential oil?
    • Yes, it important that you test a small area on your skin before applying the oil on a large area.
  • Will an essential oil, single or blend that works for another person work for you?
    • Maybe, maybe not. What helps one person may not always help another person. If one does not work you keep trying until you find a blend or single essential oil that helps.
  • Can essential oils be taken orally?
    • Some can, but many cannot. You always need to understand how your blend or single essential oil can be used. Get yourself a small book and put down the information you learn about each essential oil, so you don’t forget.
  • Where should your essential oils be kept?
    • They always need to be kept in a dark cool place.
  • Can you use essential oils on children under the age of 2?
    • My experience is that many people say no, however not everyone feels that way. Before using an essential oil on a child, discuss with a professional and see if they might agree. If so try on a child’s foot.’ Caution should be used .

Five facts in my quiz you may not have known before about essential oils. We could add several more but need to see if there is any interest in this type of information.

Aging elegantly! Like a delicate vintage tea cup.

Hi, have been thinking about this off and for days. Thought this morning as I left for my doctor’s appointment., at least I have on a different outfit for today’s appointment. Last week I realized every time I have been to this physician’s office, I end up wearing the same outfit. It is a nice outfit and clean, but always the same top and pants. Pretty pathetic and I intend to change that one of these days soon.

Watching TV in an office this morning I thought,why do women who are aging want to wear their hair long. I don’t mean shoulder length, but long long? If you have an attractive hair style that pulls the hair away from your face and hands which are pushing the hair away from your face every few minutes, then good for you. Watch some of the ladies on TV, even series and note how often they touch their hair. Enough said about that. My opinion only! Someone who keeps her hair short and in a style that causes me the least amount of work.

Rarely do I put on make up any more. Another thing that can be remedied by me. Make up as you age needs to be artfully done. Define! I don’t know that i can but will try. Just thought artfully sounded good. Kidding, kidding. Make up as you age should be tastefully done, not too much. You don’t want the double take look because the makeup is too much. You want the double take look from someone ( man or woman) who says or thinks, now there is very attractive older women.

Tips from an older woman, who has some work to do herself:

  • Dress appropriately. I myself have bought outfits from thrift stores I have received so many compliments on. Don’t put yourself in debt by buying something so expensive you really can’t afford it.
  • Hair hanging down your back. Find a flattering style that does not draw attention to your age. You want to downplay your age.
  • Make up! Moisturizer, a light base, a little color and a draw it altogether lipstick.

My words of wisdom for today! Enjoy yourself. We played Mexican Dominoes here over the weekend. Such a fun game. Plan something fun for each day.

Don’t forget to try an essential oil. There are really some great oils out there.

Blogging, a hard nut to crack!

Blogging wears many faces and one sees them every day. You begin to wonder where you fall in the line up. There are so many talented bloggers out there with tons of wisdom, knowledge, and creativity.

I am reading two books right now one by RUTH SOUKUP, HOW TO BLOG FOR PROFIT WITHOUT SELLING YOUR SOUL and the WELLPRENEUR written by AMANDA COOK, which was sent to me by our daughter, Sue. Both are good reads but it is taking me longer to read and totally comprehend. Which makes me wonder exactly why I am doing this?

What I have picked up so far is that I have to work on narrowing my niches and I see that as a weakness. It seems like I have always known a little bit about a lot of things but am not an expert in any one subject.

Do I want to continue to blog is another not weakness, but question I ask myself. Actually I have found that I enjoy writing a post, blog, article but do I want to do more at my age? As our pastor recently said at church when you are pondering about something ask yourself, will this help me get to heaven. I like to think that maybe I have helped someone in a positive way, or at least given them food for thought, when I have written something. I am hoping the Lord views that as a positive.

Right now the way I see things I have work to do, Remembering the importance of prayer, prioritizing and that means husband first, family next and then learning more about what my focus will be when and if I narrow my niche. Essential oils, lifestyle, ageing gracefully to name a few,

Retirement! When?

Here I am writing about retirement and low and behold here comes information on retirement from the bank and financial planner. So I will compare as I write, my post with what their experts have to say.

When you begin thinking about retirement, even talking about it, you had better dot all your I’s and cross all your T’s. What do I mean, I mean you had better have a plan in place and be prepared.

In your 40’s you think ok, I have plenty of time to worry about planning for retirement. In your 50’s you think I’d better be putting some money away for retirement. In your 60’s you panic and say Oh boy will I ever be able to retire? Then you hit your 70’s , your now retired and have been for a while, you start thinking I wonder how long our money will last.

Senior citizens are living longer and retirement can last a long time. Do not retire too early. Expenses continue when you are retired and no matter how plan unexpected things can happen.

You need a plan, both the bank and financial planner said basically the same thing, YOU NEED TO PLAN. YOU NEED A PLAN.

  • What kind of a lifestyle do you want to enjoy when you retire? Take another job? Volunteer? Travel? Just baby sit grandchildren? Develop a hobby? Think about it.
  • Budget now. Try to increase savings while you are still working. IF YOU OVERSPEND NOW WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN YOU RETIRE? If you are not good at budgeting, get some help. There are plenty of professionals or even take a class in basic budgeting to get on an even keel.
  • Do not forget about medical expenses ever. Be prepared ! What about unexpected emergencies
  • Maintenance on the car, the house, the yard etc.

Start planning now.#retirement#planning#savings#medicalexpenses#emergencyfund
