Imagine you are running through a field of grass feeling vibrant, looking healthy, and young. Now imagine that you are also disease-free and strong into your old age. Don't both those images seem too good to be true?
I've found that the most successful approach to a fitness program is to start by thinking, "What's the one thing that I can do today that will improve my health?"

When I turned 50, one of the thoughts I had was 'like hell will I ever write anything for Huff/Post50.' And that right there is the problem. I'm finally over it. I'm over it because it's time to walk the walk.
Being a gentleman requires possessing a mix of a positive attitude, selfless consideration, but mostly, is reliant on what kind of impression one leaves behind. The man who underneath rumpled denim took the time to shave, hold a door open and made another person feel heard -- well, that's a real gentleman. Are you one?
'Sixty is the new 40.' It's a common aphorism we've heard for some time now, doubtless meant to calm us baby boomers who are growing so long in the tooth that we now need two hands to hold our toothbrushes. And reassuring it indeed is.
After the ravages of summer sun and increased opportunities for free radical damage (aka aging), your skin needs a bit of extra help to recover its glow.

Some of the most beautiful women I know are over 40 and all seem to have one thing in common: Dr. David Colbert!
I've always believed this: 'If you're too tired to wash and cleanse your face at night, at least splash a lot of warm-hot water and use a cotton ball toner to wipe away the day's debris.'

Why is it, whenever a reporter interviews you, they ask how old you are? The last time this happened to me, I asked that very question. The reporter replied, 'People want to know how old you are, so we have to put down your age.'
Your summer beauty survival kit includes everything you need for your skin and hair to flourish in the sun.
"Ugh," I moan pitifully. It's Saturday morning at 5:30 a.m. My body is waking up prematurely. It doesn't know that we can sleep in today and that we d...
