Intention with Purpose
It’s a way to be in the world, living life, on your terms.
Even after retiring from a job, raising a family, earning one or several degrees, and moving into a lifestyle that suits a kick-back perspective, older adults yearn to tread forward and beyond.
Makes sense in theory, and it explains why:
A full or part-time retirement doesn’t have to be a dead end, or final destination. Instead, it’s a period in life that can provoke inspiration, an enlivened journey, and enjoying a life that matters.
Work: Retiring from a job can create disengagement and solitude. Being idle doesn’t add much value to our lives or our personal economy.
Not having a job can affect attitude, self-worth, and emotions. If we become depressed, it can cause cognitive decline.
Research says how we feel is linked to what and how we think. Having a job, whether full-or part-time, can enhance our lives.
Health: Being unhealthy is costly, painful, and opens us to vulnerabilities.
However, it’s safe to say that if you have good health, your potential becomes possible. And fulfillment is achieved. Even small measures of physical activity helps with brain function.
Activities and entertainment: Let’s face it, being bored and inactive leads to the devil’s playground. And most older individuals prefer to occupy some free time with reading, learning, playing online games, and more.
Get Your Bother On: What gets you out bed each morning? What would fill your heart with enthusiasm? It’s different for each of us… so try a few things on for size - the things you’ve always wanted to do. Maybe you won’t enjoy them all but if you keep looking, I’m sure one of them will get your attention.
