Positively 50+

Being 50-plus is like being a traveller on a new and exciting journey. When you were younger, you probably viewed the decades after 50 as the end of the journey, but now that you’ve arrived at this point, you hopefully see that you are not ‘past it’; you are just getting started.

There are challenges in ageing undoubtedly, but there are also many opportunities. This column from our writer Eleanor McKenzie examines the obstacles, whether related to health or finances and suggests ways to overcome them. It also explores ways to reinvent your life by offering inspiration and practical solutions for anything from starting a new business to finding new ways to use your leisure time. It’s your ‘go to’ place for being Positively 50+.
