Hello and thank you for visiting!

I’m Jo, and Lifestyle Fifty is all about helping to ease the challenges and ups and downs of keeping healthy, fit and stylish as we confront getting older – as well as finding out ways to earn a little extra money from home as we near retirement or retire.

I hope you’ll find lots of tips to help you live life to the full!

We’re getting older, but we’re so NOT invisible!

Let’s do our best to live the good life as we get older!

But before I forget … there’s something I’d like you to do first.
