Reinvent yourself this summer!  

Below find information gathered by some of my fellow Boomers, which will help you better manage your money, emotions, time, and children.

SoBabyBoomer thinks that now is a good time to protect your retirement nest eggs with a New Free Resource: The Ultimate Wave Trading Crash Course.

Laura Lee over at the Midlife Crisis Queen says: One of the pitfalls of midlife can be simply feeling that we have never done anything extra special with your life so far.  How do we get beyond feeling inadequate about our accomplishments thus far?

MP Clemens
Karen here at The Generation Above Me notes how people must adjust their priorities to accommodate increased time on self-care when moving through midlife to late life.   One study shows that older adults spent an average of 8.5 hours a day on self-care: 2.5 hours on personal care, 3.0 hours on instrumental activities of daily living (errands, bill paying and such), and 3.0 hours a day resting between tasks.

Travis S.
On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about the dangers of leaving children in hot cars and how to prevent such a tragedy. An average of 38 children in the US die each year from being trapped in cars on hot days. 


Tom Sightings has a friend, the principal at a New Jersey high school, who posted a thought-provoking New Yorker article on his Facebook page. And it led Tom to wonder Do We Spoil Our Kids?
