Baby boomers face challenges as they strive to get ahead at work, attain optimal health, spend time with loved ones, enjoy hobbies and entertainment, and prepare for retirement.
This blog is a conversation among people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s about gathering information to help people make effective choices in their lives.
Americans born from 1946 through 1964, 76 million strong, are turning 62 this year. These baby boomers will be eligible for early retirement under Social Security.
Baby boomers have more education than their parents do, and they generally have better health and more money.
When surveyed, many baby boomers say they want to live different lives than their parents, expecting to work at least part time after they retire.
This blog will discuss topics such as workplace challenges, retirement, health care, computers, cell phones, stress reduction, volunteering, credit woes, depression, a healthy diet, exercise, frauds, downsizing, grandchildren, and relationships.
As a consumer specialist, I’ve studied consumer economics. As a journalist, I’ve written consumer columns and articles for newspapers in the West.
I look forward to this blog conversation on issues of importance to baby boomers. The blog will be updated five times a week, beginning next week. For the next couple of days, I’ll be getting my computer files transferred to my new i-Mac.
