Over Fifty? Time to reboot?

reboot-featuredEver wanted to reboot your life? If you're over fifty, there's a good chance you need a reboot. What if it was just as easy as rebooting your computer? Luther Cale's book, 33 Ways To Reboot Your Life shows you just how to do it. He says, "The good news? Anyone can do it!"

The other good news? No one else can do it for you. You have to do it for yourself. That also means that no one can take it away from you. The inner journey that you travel through on a Reboot means that you will discover and polish your unique gifts and continually find new and exciting ways to share those gifts with others and to add value.

  • Here are several reason why you might need a reboot:
  • You don't wake up jazzed every day to give the world your best.
  • Your closest relationships are a drain on you, not a source of joy.
  • You stopped exploring, stopped dreaming. You feel dead inside.
  • You don't know what to do with your life.
  • You are in a constant state of stress or confusion.
  • You are wondering where your life has gone.
  • You walk around pissed most of the time.
  • You may have been recently divorced
  • A loved one died
  • You lost your job

Although this website is for anyone over fifty, it's more for those who are 50+ and alone. It can take time to get used to being alone. And if you're struggling with it, you really need a reboot. You have to find away to get back to that place where you enjoy life, want to make a difference, and enjoy the next 50 years doing new things.

reboot-ebookIn other posts on this site we looked at Fifty Things to Do When You Turn Fifty, and Things to do without much money, but sometimes we get in a place where we don't want to do anything. So that's why Luther Cale's book, 33 Ways To Reboot Your Life might come in handy for you. And it's being offered for free today, as an Amazon promotion.

He says, "This book features 33 experiments that you can try for yourself. 30 days at a time. Some experiments feature little-known nutrition and health secrets. Some are tune-up exercises for your mind and spirit. Other tips will help you establish a more effective morning routine. There's even information about earth-shattering orgasms in here."

Defeating Cancer by Connie Strasheim

defeat-cancer-featuredIn this long-awaited book, Defeat Cancer: 15 Doctors of Integrative & Naturopathic Medicine Tell You How, health care journalist Connie Strasheim has done all the work for you. She conducted intensive interviews with fifteen highly regarded doctors who specialize in cancer treatment, asking them thoughtful, important questions, and then spent months compiling their information into organized, user-friendly chapters that contain the core principles upon which they base their approach to healing cancer. The practitioners interviewed are medical, osteopathic and naturopathic doctors, trained in a variety of integrative approaches to cancer treatment.

All aspects of treatment are covered, from anti-neoplastic (anti-cancer) remedies and immune system support, to dietary and lifestyle choices that result in the best outcomes for patients. The book also offers unique insights into healing, such as the pros and cons of different treatments and how to intelligently use chemotherapy. It discusses patient and practitioner challenges to healing, factors that affect healing, treatment outcomes and how to effectively combine multiple medical strategies to obtain the best results. Finally, it offers helpful insights to the friends and families of those coping with cancer. Cancer treatment is complex and controversial, and this book puts the treatment information you need in the palm of your hand.

defeat-cancer-ebookThis would be a good book to get now. But keep in mind, the ideas discussed in here are simply to provide you with options, and different paths you could take if you had cancer. As one reviewer said, "With every chapter I finished I thougt: Yes, this is the approach I would go for. At the end I could not decide which would be best for me (in case cancer should ever hit me), but it is not the aim of this book to help you chose an option. It is supposed to give you a glimpse of what your possibilities are and then explore different options more extensively. I especially liked the mentioning of other websites where you can find additional information."

Vitamin D: and people over fifty

vitd-featuredVitamin D is more important to those over fifty. As our bodies age, the more chance we take of our kidneys not converting it to its active form. A deficiency could mean you have increased your risk of cardiovascular disease, asthma, dementia, depression and cancer.  And of course, people who are bed-ridden don't have the chance to get outside so their bodies can't manufacture their daily requirement.

A book by Peter Kornfeld is being offered for free today as an Amazon promotion, titled Vitamin D Diet: Benefits of Vitamin D for Optimal Health. You will discover:

vitD-ebook• Which natural resource contains the best vitamin”D “ for you;
• Which artificial vitamin “D” is the best alternative to the natural source;
• Which diseases can be better managed with the help of vitamin “D”;
• How it does its job in your system;
• All you need to know about this vitamin during pregnancy;
• And much more…

Mr. Kornfeld says, "If you are serious about getting a better balanced diet with vitamin D3, you need this ultimate resource with answers to common questions before you decide to add vitamin D3 to your diet. You owe it to yourself and your good health to get the optimal benefits listed in this guide. You don’t know what you are missing unless you change now and help yourself by getting the knowledge that this book reveals."

Over Fifty and Late Life Depression

black-dog-featuredIf you find yourself over fifty and alone -- welcome to the club! We certainly hope that the reason you're here is because you made it a lifestyle choice. Sadly, that may not be the reason why some of you are here. If you're new to this whole thing, some of you might be suffering from a little depression. This doesn't mean that it is necessarily a psychiatric disorder. It's quite natural to feel this way after certain life events have transpired.

You may be feeling tired, hopeless, over eating or under eating, and you might even contemplate suicide. But let me assure, the great gift of freedom does not come without a price. You have to pay for the trip first. You might pay more if it's a longer trip. But like any trip -- it will end, in most cases.

According to a study by Punjab Medical College it says that 26% of men will experience depression from relationship difficulties while 54% of women will. That's over half!!

Late life depression can occur in people over 50 to 60 years in age. And according to Wikipedia it says:

The exact changes in brain chemistry and function that cause either late life or earlier-onset depression are unknown. It is known, however, that brain changes can be triggered by the stresses of certain life events such as illness, childbirth, death of a loved one, life transitions (such as retirement), interpersonal conflicts, or social isolation.Risk factors for depression in elderly persons include a history of depression, chronic medical illness, female sex, being single or divorced, brain disease, alcohol abuse, use of certain medications, and stressful life events.

Worse yet, sometimes this can develop into Major depressive disorder (MDD) (also known as clinical depression, major depression, unipolar depression, unipolar disorder or recurrent depression. Sadly, there is no laboratory test for major depression, although physicians generally request tests for physical conditions that may cause similar symptoms. MDD is often referred to as "The Black Dog". It's thought this term was a metaphor for the depression suffered by Winston Churchill. It just won't leave you alone.

b-dog-ebookRobert G. Kramer has written a book, Taming the Black Dog of Depression, (A Guide for Those Who Are Suffering and Their Families). He ays, " My personal story will focus on depression, and I promise it will inspire you and guide you if you are currently depressed. It will provide hope if you feel hopeless because I have been there and I have felt the pain and despair."

One of his reviewers of the book is Dorothy Varchol, MSN, MA, RN-BC, who has been employed as a nurse educator and has spent over 40 years in the Mental Health field. She says, "He gives practical advice about recovery strategies that have helped him use medications effectively and cope with problems and symptoms. His book is a great resource for learning how one goes about getting his or her needs met in the Mental Health System."

Robert's book is free for the next 24-48 hours as an Amazon promotion, so if you think you are a victim of your own Black Dog you might want to have a look at it. Click here to download it now.

I would also like to add, that a young friend of mine, Twyla Wilband, is a Community Correspondent for Partners for Mental Health, mental health advocate, and a person with living experience of mental illness. She is a Peer Support Specialist, who writes a weekly blog on the subject of mental illness titled, Inside the Looking Glass. If you are suffering from depression, you may find some help by reading about her experiences, and how she deals with it all.
