Mardi Gras Reflected in Boomer Gardens

Posted On: February, 26, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

Thanks to warm (and wet!) weather since… well, probably this time last year, everything is blooming early. For those Boomers who garden, odd bloom patterns can be both a blessing and a curse: we have to use different strategies to fight weeds, protect tender buds from random cold snaps, and research to prepare for what is likely to be a hot summer.

Great News for Boomers: Life Begins Now

Posted On: February, 21, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

With retirement in the rear-view mirror, Boomers often wonder what their “next act” might be. If we’re to believe our children, the world is theirs now.

What we forget, however, is that we’re not obsolete the moment we blow out the candles on our 50th, 60th, or even 80th birthdays. Our decades of experience in work, relationships, and observation make our “second act” sometimes better than our first! If you need a little bit of inspiration, take a look at these exceptional senior adults:

Boomers Appreciate Innovations At Home

Posted On: February, 11, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

On February 11, 1847, Thomas Alva Edison was born in Milan, Ohio. He would go on to invent the first long-lasting lightbulb, the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and more, eventually securing 1,093 patents for items that contributed to the everyday conveniences we enjoy today. (He also founded the first research laboratory, assembling teams of innovators who contributed their ideas and work to many inventions for which Edison is famous).

While Windsong may not have a research laboratory on the scale of Edison’s lab in Menlo Park, New Jersey, Active Adults certainly benefit from the innovations present in every home and community Windsong creates.

Winter at Windsong

Posted On: January, 31, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

January seems to last forever

Rain fills the skies, nights are cold

Inside we spend some time together

Visits are a balm to the soul, I’m told.

 

These are the days we long for sun

Yet quiet winter gives us rest

We nestle in when day is done

Our patience is put to the test.

Making Friends Is A Boomer Thing To Do

Posted On: January, 23, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

Think back to elementary school, the first days of college, or your first job, when making friends seemed to be second nature. As Active Adults, we tend to gravitate toward the friends we’ve had for decades, and often find it difficult to form new friendships.

Moving to a new place, whether you’re from across the country or around the corner, provides a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and forge new friendships since, like the first day of school, everyone has something in common.

“Not So Big” is Just So Right for Active Adults

Posted On: January, 15, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

At the start of a new year, many folks express their desire to reduce stress, and to simplify their lives, but having more than you need – in terms of space, of possessions, etc. - actually increases stress and makes day-to-day living more complicated.

Over the past two decades, Sarah has designed homes and promoted rethinking how we live in our spaces, with her “Not So Big House” concept – and nine books on the subject. Windsong already ascribed to this idea, but has found ways in which to expand upon that idea in each Windsong home and community.

Boomer Word of the Year

Posted On: January, 3, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

Have you ever made a New Year’s resolution on January 1st, only to lose momentum on your commitment by February 1st (or sooner)?  The reason, according to psychological studies, is because we’re trying to make too big a change, too fast; we’re using negative reinforcement to try to achieve a goal; or we’re doing it for reasons that we don’t truly believe.
