Here’s another installment of pictures, culled from Pinterest, of people “Aging with Attitude” to inspire, inform, and uplift you. Curious about Pinterest? Read “How to Use Pinterest: 4 Tips for Getting Started” on Senior Planet.)
Dancing whenever the mood strikes you
Anytime is a good time to dance through life like no one was looking….and not care if everyone did -with joy and verve, like Tao Porchon-Lynch, still dancing and still teaching yoga at 99.
Wear sunglasses with some spring…or some bling
As long as we need to follow the National Eye Institute’s advice about wearing sunglasses (to prevent cataracts or macular degeneration), let’s follow the lead of 81 year old Rita and do it with style, color and a sense of fun – she’s got 70 pairs of sunglasses and wears a different one each day.
Invest in a stylish chapeau
This stylish fellow, Wanny Di Filippo, is a well known figure in Florence, where he is the man behind the Il Bisonte leather goods label. He’s locally famous for his impeccably groomed beard and his flamboyant and colorful styles, always accompanied by a colorful hat.
Go Gray with Flair
Celebrity stylist Lorraine Massey estimates that women spend an average of $50,000 over the course of 40 years on hair coloring; she’s encouraging women of all ages to go gray with confidence and flair – she literally wrote the book on it – Silver Hair: A Handbook.
Try Video Games
Studies have shown many advantages to playing video games. You can try casual video games (Senior Planet has the scoop on free, fun ones here). For real adventure, try eSports like these Virtual Reality senior gamers, the Silver Snipers (Senior Planet covered them here) after you learn about VR. Curious?
