Do you remember going to an airport with no security checkpoint, driving a car without a phone in it, and using whiteout to correct typos? If so, congratulations! You’re either headed for imminent retirement or already actively enjoying its perks.
You’ve also witnessed an explosion of tech and the emergence of a little concept called social media that has dramatically altered the way we live, love, and learn. Rising to the tech challenge, more and more active adults are now fully engaged in social media fever, taking advantage of senior websites and blogs that are enhancing every aspect of this new and exciting chapter.
Check out some of these top senior blogs. Whether you’re looking for lifestyle advice, news and current events, or just some info to make your days more fun, there are plenty of sites for you.
Health and Nutrition
While the New York Times no longer has a dedicated senior health blog, its other two sites have valuable info and tips for living well, staying healthy, and avoiding injury while exercising. One is the New York Times Health section, and the other is their “Well” blog.
Love and Stuff
It’s no secret that AARP is an excellent resource for all things senior. But you may not be aware of a little blog called “Sexology.” This site tackles love and intimacy-related issues for the 55+ in a straightforward, helpful manner. Its focus is to assist seniors as they navigate the challenges of relationships.
