Women Over 50: Your Personal Checklist

Get in touch with mind and body -- and they'll take you anywhere you want to go. These tips get you started.

Women Over 50: Making More of Mind and Body continued...

___Drink sensibly. For all women, not just women over 50, one alcoholic drink a night is plenty.

___Find a creative outlet. It helps prevent depression -- and depression affects memory. Having a creative outlet helps stimulate your mind. Take up painting. Create a wonderful garden. Engaging your creativity stimulates your brain more than reading, and certainly more than TV.

___Make your home an oasis. Eliminate clutter. Fill your home with great music, books, and friends. Withdraw and recharge when you need to.

___Associate with positive-focused people. They will not drain your valuable energy with complaints. They will help you pursue the best that life has to offer.

For women over 50, that pursuit can take any form and take a woman anywhere. Make now the very best time of your life.
