Bailey Mosier explains how seniors can gain health and wellness benefits by leading a purpose-driven and more meaningful life after retirement.
Hi, I’m Bailey Mosier. This is your EmpowHER HER Daily Dose.
When we’re young, we focus mostly on ourselves and material possessions. But at some point we transition into a more altruistic lifestyle, one in which we find purpose and meaning from within. Such a lifestyle can be very powerful and very positive, especially for seniors.
Being a purpose-driven adult means making decisions about how to achieve holistic wellness, which includes physical fitness, lifelong learning, social engagement, and pursuing your passions and giving back. A purpose-driven life is one in which we become attuned with our mind, body and spirit.
Such retirement communities that offer fitness centers, golf courses, tennis courts, performing art theaters, restaurants and many other amenities are an optimal environment for seniors looking to make that transition into the next phase of their lives.
In the first half of our lives, we tend to be more egocentric and disengaged, but in the second half engagement is a priority. Being a senior doesn’t mean your life is ending, because in a purpose-driven life, the living is only beginning.
