Feel Healthier and Happier Over 50!
Feel Healthier and Happier Over 50!




I’m Margie Abernethy, a 35-year veteran of healthcare sales and marketing gone lifestyle blogger.  I grew up  in Connecticut, moved to Colorado when I was 18.  After 35 years in Colorado, my husband Dave and I 

recently moved to Sarasota, Florida.

The blog was intended to provide a window into the small mountain town in which we lived, in Evergreen, Colorado. Long story, short - by the time I figured out all the technology, we had moved six times and over 2,000 miles  to Sarasota, Florida!  A world apart from the one we left, we find Sarasota to be an inspiring community that Dave and I already love in so many ways.

Along the way, we turned our new home in Evergreen, Colorado into 

an Airbnb and moved from the mountains to a fabulous beach town on the Gulf Coast of Florida.  It’s a completely different lifestyle and it was completely unexpected! I have always considered myself to be a mountain person over a beach person.  That is, until recently;-).  We’re loving it here!  

Siesta Key is a known Center of Healing Energy 

[learn more about the natural healing properties of Siesta Key's sand here.]  I intend to soak up all the healing energy I can with hatha yoga on the white sand beaches of Siesta Key!!


I am a wife to a handsome tech guru and a dog-mom to Winnie and Wilbur, our fur babies. I write about my decision to completely overhaul my life – jumping off the corporate gerbil wheel and into two internet businesses, starting with an Airbnb and then a blog, while creating healthy habits

 and generally trying to simplify my life, re-prioritize 

and start over in my late fifties.  

While I am not a physician, I can offer tremendous insight into medicine and cutting through the pseudo-science to understand what the big take-away means for us all.  I share my insight into what the studies document.  Again, I'm no physician -- but I know what they look for and I understand what the science is telling us.  My insights into health and wellness requires passing a level of scientific rigor before I would even consider writing about it here.  

Dave and I are looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle, so we make smart choices in what we eat.  One way we safeguard our health is through a healthy Whole-Foods, Plant Based Diet (WFPB) which has been proven to be the best way to safeguard your health from chronic and deadly diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

I love staying active, exploring, travel, dogs and learning.  

My journey includes focus on a higher level of health and wellness, both physical and mental.  I write about easy ways to incorporate healthier habits into your daily life, simplifying your life in manageable steps, and ways to increase your happiness.
