age 50","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>“Pursue your passion” is the kind of advice you might receive from friends or relatives who either never pursued their passion or knew from the day they were born what they wanted to do. It sounds like great advice until you pause to think about it and realize that you have no idea what your passion is or how to begin to get from point A to point B. Here are some suggestions to ease you into those first steps:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Find a place to start.</strong> You don’t need a precise definition before you get going. Start by making a list of what you want in the next phase of your career. Don’t look for a perfect path or ideal starting point.</li>\n<li><strong>Get things moving by taking small steps.</strong> Get moving in the general direction of where you want to go. One small step may be contacting someone who works in a field that appeals to you to discuss possibilities.</li>\n<li><strong>Silence your inner enemy.</strong> If you have a negative refrain that goes through your head and sabotages your efforts to make a change, such as “I’m too old to do that,” make note of it. Write that thought down in a notebook and reframe it with a positive thought, such as, “I have vast experience and these specific skills, and I’m going to use them in a new career.” You need to get rid of that old blocking message to move forward with your dreams.</li>\n<li><strong>Ask the basic questions.</strong> Does your second act fit your lifestyle? Can you afford it? What does your partner think? Ask yourself how a certain career will work with your social life, your spending habits, and your family situation. It will help you to dig deeper and get a clearer picture of what you truly want in your life and your options to get there.</li>\n<li><strong>Keep a journal.</strong> Journaling is a great way to map your new career direction. Make lists: the best times in your life, the things you really like, the experiences you’ve enjoyed, what you’ve excelled at, the best moments in your current career. These lists can help you home in on your passion and visualize yourself harnessing it to pursue something new and exciting.</li>\n<li><strong>Get a business card.</strong> Want to be an artist but still working as a lawyer? Get an artist’s business card. As soon as you have a card, it makes the career real. You can get your second‐act card long before you finish your first act. Printing your new information on a card can be transformative.</li>\n<li><strong>Have a mental picture of where you want to go.</strong> Tape a photograph to your office wall of what your new career might look like. Or create a collage. Journal about your goals.</li>\n<li><strong>Be practical.</strong> You may need to upgrade your skills and education, but take one class at a time. You can add more classes as your direction and motivation become clear.</li>\n<li><strong>Get your life in order.</strong> Get physically and financially fit. Change is stressful. When you’re physically fit, you have more energy. Less debt gives you more choices. With your finances in order, you have more options. You can be more nimble.</li>\n</ul>\n"},{"title":"Managing Your Money at Age 50 and Beyond","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Spending money is much more fun than cutting expenses, but debt is a dream killer. It drives people to make choices out of desperation that often limit their opportunities to achieve future wealth. If you’ve never had to concern yourself with finances in the past, focus first on these fundamentals:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Chart a budget.</strong> Write down your income, what you owe, and what you have socked away. Look at what you’re spending every day, every month, and every year. This will help you find ways to pare back your spending. Begin by keeping track of how much you spend each day and on what. (Pay in cash or put everything on a credit or debit card, as long as that doesn’t lead to increased spending.) Then, on a monthly basis, study your credit card, bank statements, and log of cash payments to see where your money is going and what can be trimmed back or eliminated. Do you dine out too often? Are you traveling too much? Do you spend a lot on streaming subscriptions or clothes?</li>\n<li><strong>Track your finances on a website or in an app.</strong> To find one search “track finances app” or “budget app.” These sites are designed to help you streamline your bill paying and dissect your monthly spending.</li>\n<li><strong>Increase your savings.</strong> If you’re unemployed, increasing your savings probably is not an option, but if you’re still working and planning ahead for a career change or business startup, grow your nest egg. A savings cushion of six months to a year of living expenses will stave off dipping into your retirement savings or taking on debt. (Aim for a year’s worth of expenses, if you can swing it.)</li>\n<li><strong>Stay liquid.</strong> Emergency funds typically belong in bank accounts or money market funds that don’t fluctuate in value and are easily accessible by check, ATM, or teller window. Also consider putting some of your emergency cash in bank CDs with maturity dates of six months or less so you can eke out a little more interest than from a savings account. You generally find the highest rates at online banks and credit unions.</li>\n<li><strong>Review your credit report and score.</strong> Get a free annual report at <a href=\"//www.annualcreditreport.com/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">www.annualcreditreport.com</a>, and check for errors. Your credit score is important for two reasons:\n<ul>\n<li>With a higher score, you can borrow more money at lower interest rates, which gives you more choices. Good credit can provide the funds you need to start a business or pay bills as you transition to contract work.</li>\n<li>Many employers are now checking credit scores prior to hiring. (They must ask your permission to do so.)</li>\n</ul>\n</li>\n<li><strong>If your credit score is lower than 700, work toward improving it.</strong> Pay all bills on time, and don’t open new accounts, transfer balances, close accounts, or cancel credit cards, all of which show up on your credit report and negatively affect your credit score.</li>\n<li><strong>Consolidate debt.</strong> If you have several sources of debt, you may be able to consolidate loans and credit card balances into a single loan with a lower overall interest rate.</li>\n<li><strong>Reduce or eliminate debt.</strong> Pay down credit card balances and refinance your mortgage at a lower rate, if possible. Consider downsizing your home, depending on where you live and the real estate market. If you have enough equity built up in your current home, you may be able to sell it and pay cash for a more affordable home, eliminating your mortgage.If you’ve experienced a financial setback, such as unemployment, contact your creditors and try to negotiate payment options. Banks are often willing to work out arrangements with people who are responsible enough to call them and make a sincere effort to work out a solution.</li>\n<li><strong>Consult with a fee‐only financial planner.</strong> Look for experienced, credentialed advisors. As a rule, an advisor should have the Certified Financial Planner designation, awarded by the nonprofit Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards. These national groups of financial planners offer searchable databases with contact information: the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (<a href=\"//www.cfp.net\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">www.cfp.net</a>), Financial Planning Association (<a href=\"//www.plannersearch.org/\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">www.plannersearch.org</a>), Garrett Planning Network (www.<a href=\"//www.garrettplanningnetwork.com\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">garrettplanningnetwork</a>.com), and National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (<a href=\"//www.napfa.org\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">www.napfa.org</a>).</li>\n<li><strong>Take a personal finance course or read a book.</strong> Many community colleges offer personal finance courses.</li>\n</ul>\n"},{"title":"Checking out the benefits of yoga after 50","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Yoga can be a great practice for anyone, offering you a multitude of benefits — if you practice the type of yoga that’s right for your body.

Sometimes your mind goes from thought to thought without stopping to rest. At other times, your thoughts come slower and have more of a space between them. Mindfulness isn’t so much about changing the rate of your thoughts, but about noticing the thoughts arising in the first place.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Listen to your thoughts with mindfulness</h2>\r\nEverything man-made around you was originally a thought in someone’s head. Many people consider thought to be all-powerful. All your words, all your action and activities – everything is motivated by thought. So, being aware of the kind of thoughts going through your mind makes sense.\r\n\r\nThe brain easily gets into habitual patterns, as your thoughts travel their paths within the brain. Each time you have a particular thought, or carry out a particular action, you slightly increase the chance of having the same thought again.\r\n\r\nThrough repeated thinking or action, the connection between neurons strengthens. If you aren’t mindful of these thoughts or actions, you may have all sorts of negative, untrue, unhelpful thoughts or behaviors that influence your life without you even being aware of them or questioning the truth or validity of them.\r\n\r\nMindfulness encourages you to watch your thoughts, emotions and actions; then you’re better able to notice unhelpful thoughts and question their truth.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Use mindfulness to make better decisions</h2>\r\nEvery moment of every day you make decisions, whether you’re aware of them or not. At some point, you’ll decide to stop and do something else. More significant decisions you have to make have a bigger impact, and a ‘good’ decision is highly desirable. All that you do and have at the moment is partly due to the decisions you made in the past.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Awareness of your body can help you make better decisions – a gut feeling is a signal from your belly telling you what to do and has been found in some experiments to be faster and more accurate than logical thinking. Research shows a mass of nerves in the gut that’s like a second brain. This intuition is routinely used by top CEOs of corporations to make critical decisions.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Come to your senses through mindfulness</h2>\r\nOne of the key ways of becoming more mindful and of calming the mind is to connect with your senses – sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. People’s use of the word ‘sense’ shows they appreciate and value being in touch with our organs of perception. You know innately the value of connecting to your senses if you want to make a <i>sens</i>ible decision.\r\n\r\nWhat is the benefit of purposefully connecting with your senses? Well, if you aren’t paying attention to the stimulation coming through your five senses you’re only paying attention to your thoughts and emotions. You’re not aware of anything else. Your thoughts are mainly based on your experiences from the past, from memory.\r\n\r\nYou may imagine something new, but on the whole, your mind reworks past experiences, or projects ideas into the future based on your past experiences. Emotions are also very much influenced by your thoughts. So, without paying attention to your senses, you’re stuck with your own thoughts and emotions based on the past instead of the present.\r\n\r\nBy purposefully connecting with one of your senses, say, touch, you begin naturally to calm your mind a little. In mindfulness you can begin by focusing on your breathing. Focus on your belly stretching or your chest expanding or perhaps the movement of the air as it enters and leaves your body.\r\n\r\nBy focusing on a particular sense, in this case the sense of touch, you’re focusing your attention. Rather than your mind wandering wherever it pleases, you’re gently training it to stay on one object, namely your breathing.\r\n\r\nBy coming to your senses mindfully you are\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Training your attention to focus.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Being kind to yourself when your mind wanders off.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Realizing that you’ve a certain amount of choice about what you pay attention to.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Understanding that you can deliberately choose to shift attention away from thinking and into the senses.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Calming your mind.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Create an attentive mind with mindfulness</h2>\r\nAttention is essential in achieving anything.

Sometimes your mind goes from thought to thought without stopping to rest. At other times, your thoughts come slower and have more of a space between them. Mindfulness isn’t so much about changing the rate of your thoughts, but about noticing the thoughts arising in the first place.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Listen to your thoughts with mindfulness</h2>\r\nEverything man-made around you was originally a thought in someone’s head. Many people consider thought to be all-powerful. All your words, all your action and activities – everything is motivated by thought. So, being aware of the kind of thoughts going through your mind makes sense.\r\n\r\nThe brain easily gets into habitual patterns, as your thoughts travel their paths within the brain. Each time you have a particular thought, or carry out a particular action, you slightly increase the chance of having the same thought again.\r\n\r\nThrough repeated thinking or action, the connection between neurons strengthens. If you aren’t mindful of these thoughts or actions, you may have all sorts of negative, untrue, unhelpful thoughts or behaviors that influence your life without you even being aware of them or questioning the truth or validity of them.\r\n\r\nMindfulness encourages you to watch your thoughts, emotions and actions; then you’re better able to notice unhelpful thoughts and question their truth.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Use mindfulness to make better decisions</h2>\r\nEvery moment of every day you make decisions, whether you’re aware of them or not. At some point, you’ll decide to stop and do something else. More significant decisions you have to make have a bigger impact, and a ‘good’ decision is highly desirable. All that you do and have at the moment is partly due to the decisions you made in the past.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Awareness of your body can help you make better decisions – a gut feeling is a signal from your belly telling you what to do and has been found in some experiments to be faster and more accurate than logical thinking. Research shows a mass of nerves in the gut that’s like a second brain. This intuition is routinely used by top CEOs of corporations to make critical decisions.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Come to your senses through mindfulness</h2>\r\nOne of the key ways of becoming more mindful and of calming the mind is to connect with your senses – sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. People’s use of the word ‘sense’ shows they appreciate and value being in touch with our organs of perception. You know innately the value of connecting to your senses if you want to make a <i>sens</i>ible decision.\r\n\r\nWhat is the benefit of purposefully connecting with your senses? Well, if you aren’t paying attention to the stimulation coming through your five senses you’re only paying attention to your thoughts and emotions. You’re not aware of anything else. Your thoughts are mainly based on your experiences from the past, from memory.\r\n\r\nYou may imagine something new, but on the whole, your mind reworks past experiences, or projects ideas into the future based on your past experiences. Emotions are also very much influenced by your thoughts. So, without paying attention to your senses, you’re stuck with your own thoughts and emotions based on the past instead of the present.\r\n\r\nBy purposefully connecting with one of your senses, say, touch, you begin naturally to calm your mind a little. In mindfulness you can begin by focusing on your breathing. Focus on your belly stretching or your chest expanding or perhaps the movement of the air as it enters and leaves your body.\r\n\r\nBy focusing on a particular sense, in this case the sense of touch, you’re focusing your attention. Rather than your mind wandering wherever it pleases, you’re gently training it to stay on one object, namely your breathing.\r\n\r\nBy coming to your senses mindfully you are\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Training your attention to focus.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Being kind to yourself when your mind wanders off.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Realizing that you’ve a certain amount of choice about what you pay attention to.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Understanding that you can deliberately choose to shift attention away from thinking and into the senses.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Calming your mind.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Create an attentive mind with mindfulness</h2>\r\nAttention is essential in achieving anything.

They do.\r\n\r\nA healthy regret becomes a thinking error when you beat yourself up about it and hold onto that regret too tightly for too long.

Here you minimize or trivialize any positive response to who you are or what you do.

Anybody could have done it.\"\r\n\r\nOften this error reflects some aspects of low self-esteem, fearing that being seen positively isn't a reflection of who you really are, and that this positive recognition may create expectations of you in the future that you feel you may not be able to meet. To correct this error, step back and reframe your situation. Ask yourself if you are being too quick to minimize and discount your traits, abilities, and accomplishments.","description":"Believe it or not, your own thinking actively plays a role in creating your stress. At the heart of this distorted thinking are <i>thinking errors,</i> mistakes or distortions in your thinking that can result in excessive stress.\r\n\r\nSee if you fall prey to any of the following thinking errors and find out what you can do to fix them.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Blaming</h2>\r\nWhen you commit the error of blaming, you distortedly blame life conditions or other people as the source of your negative feelings or situation.\r\n\r\nYou may think your life wouldn't be as bad as it is now if your parents had sent you to a better school or that it's your fault that your life is so unhappy. Now, while there may be <i>some</i> truth in these assertions, the blame is too global and doesn't recognize the influence of other factors.\r\n\r\nBy blaming someone else or some external situation, you fail to take any responsibility for your role in contributing to a possible negative outcome. This error can be a major source of anger and resentment. To correct this error, ask yourself if there might be other factors that could be contributing to the problem and not just the situation or the other person.\r\n\r\nAnd even <i>if</i> someone or something else is at fault, focus on what <i>you</i> could do to change or fix the situation or problem.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Regret orientation</h2>\r\nThis error has you focusing on all the things you didn't do in the past.

Depression is treatable, and lots of help is available. Here are some sources you can consult:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>Your family doctor:</strong> Ask for a complete physical. Sometimes depression is the result of other medical problems.</li>\n<li><strong>Mental health professionals:</strong> See one of these professionals after you rule out other physical causes for your low mood. Licensed psychologists, social workers, and counselors can competently diagnose and treat depression.</li>\n<li><strong>Psychiatrists:</strong> These physicians have specialized training in the treatment of depression and other mental disorders. They typically focus on the use of medication and other biologically based treatments.</li>\n<li><strong>The Internet:</strong> We recommend WebMD and the American Psychological Association as especially informative sites with lots of useful, user-friendly information about depression. But remember that the internet can’t replace professional help.</li>\n<li><strong>Books about depression.</strong> Start with this book and then visit your library.

A bad mood isn’t the same as depression. Bad moods are transient, and they lift after a while.

Get that heart pounding.</li>\n<li><strong>Be grateful. </strong>Make a list of what you feel grateful for. Bad moods may make you forget the good things in your life. Spend a few minutes considering life’s gifts, from small to large.</li>\n<li><strong>Don’t catastrophize. </strong>Realize that everyone feels a little low once in a while.</li>\n<li><strong>Help someone.</strong> Focusing on helping someone else is one of the best ways to overcome a lousy mood.
