I’m obsessed with ensuring that I continue to exercise, contribute to my community in meaningful ways and stay engaged socially. Many studies report that these are the three most important elements to aging well. The tough part is making sure that I have the wealth and health to afford these luxuries.
Have you begun to envision your future? A great book I recently found is Roadmap for the Rest of Your Life: Smart Choices About Money, Health, Work, Lifestyle … and Pursuing Your Dreams. There are many life stories interspersed and you quickly understand how many people find that the typical american dream of retirement doesn’t suit their abilities or their interests.
The time to start planning is best done in your 40s and 50s … when it feels far away. I hope you will hit your local library and check it out. Recommended.
