How awesome does retirement look on you?
Are you enjoying your retirement without losing your purpose in life?
I am on a mission to change the image of aging and retirement.

I don’t appreciate the media only portraying retired people as unhealthy and unfit. My husband and I love to travel with Backroads Biking and Hiking to be surrounded with people who love to be healthy, no matter your age. Just like our Yosemite trip, where there were 6 couples the youngest early 60s and the oldest mid-70s.
Age is a mindset. According to a study in Psychological Science, the healthier you feel, the longer you live. That’s why it’s so important to me to show lots of examples of what retirement and aging CAN look like.
I plan to highlight the possibilities for people when they retire.
For some, they might not be able to run the marathons they used to, but you can walk them.
Or, you can be like my spin teacher, he is a 61 years old and is an Ironman. He teaches people to participate in them, too. He is not letting age define what is possible for him. He has taken charge of his health and fitness.
I believe retirement is the beginning of new opportunities in life.
I am tired of people thinking that once you are retired, you have no value.

A fascinating new study from Merrill Lynch and the Age Wave research firm (Giving in Retirement: America’s Longevity Bonus) predicts that boomer retirees potentially will give the equivalent of $8 trillion through charitable donations and volunteering over the next two decades.

Boomers and Retirees have a lot to give and contribute.
