Being over 60 doesn´t mean that we become invisible. To prove that turning sixty is not only to be celebrated, but a source of inspiration for other women, we´ve compiled this roundup.

We made sure that it was listed somewhere in their profile or feed that they are between 60 and 70, as we plan to do another roundup of fabulous women in their 70s.

These women are all in their 60s at the time of writing, and inspire us for different reasons.

They are listed in a random order and, as far as we´re concerned, they´re all number one!

You may find them all on Instagram, sharing the joys and sorrows of their current decade.

Sundance 2020 has officially arrived in Park City, and the festival kicked off with Crip Camp, a documentary produced by Barack and Michelle Obama. And, Taylor Swift premiered her documentary, Miss Americana. This is one of my favorite weeks of the year… I have friends who are joining me, and the town is buzzing. I need all the energy I can get this week, since a typical day includes running nonstop from films to panel discussions to fueling up with food and of course, finding a few minutes throughout the day to fit in some movement. . Have you heard of “movement snacking?” Because that’s what I’m doing….it’s breaking up your movement into brief, “snack-sized” portions. Research shows that breaking up your day with small bursts of nutritious movement can reduce your risk of early death by up to 35% . Remember…movement is cumulative! Those short times you spend moving throughout the day add up to big results! So, start to change the way you think about movement and don’t make the mistake of thinking that only long-duration workouts matter. . Try this 10-min HIIT routine that can fit into even the busiest schedule. This workout is convenient because it utilizes simple movements done quickly and with purpose. Just be sure not to sacrifice proper form! Each motion is done rapidly, focusing on speed, form, and technique…followed by an active recovery period. *LINK IN BIO* . That’s right… In less time than it takes to make your morning smoothie, you can surge fresh oxygen through your body and brain, build and shape muscle and rev your metabolism.

Trying to capture the moment with a photo isn’t always easy. (and what I’ve shared is only one half of the story—and not the night I was so set on trying to have “proof”, if you will) One of you moves, or the light is bad, or you get so focused on trying to capture the essence of your feelings in a photo—like if the photo isn’t great then the moment didn’t happen. And what I realize is that the feelings of lightness and smiles, budding love, and comfort in each other’s presence isn’t something you can always fit into the camera’s lens. The memory is what sustains us and that we don’t forget. #pleasure #thisis64 #relationships #capturethemoment #musings #agingunapologetically
