You Can Start a Business!

If you are enjoying retirement but your mind is still wishing you could build another dream. Do it! Embrace your inner entrepreneur!

"various surveys estimate that as much as 50 percent of all work will be done on a freelance basis within the next 20 to 30 years. This is becoming known as the "gig economy," it effects all generations and requires an entrepreneurial spirit to navigate." Says John Tarnoff in his book, Boomer Reinvention.

Perhaps you are itching for some more connection and meaning in the daytime that you miss. Many are happy with sitting, reading, playing cards, or walking in nature, but perhaps you need something else. There's nothing wrong with that. You can figure out what you like to do and offer it to others as a form of paid service or consulting business.

Have you experienced discrimination in the workplace due to your age? You are over-qualified, or maybe companies are downsizing. It may have been the time to stop working or some physical ailment has made daily driving to the office no longer feasible. Instead of losing your professional confidence and sense of purpose, build yourself back up in your own work world instead.

Can You Accept Help Easily?

You want your parents to feel your love. You need to help them with love.

Have you ever received an offer of help from someone else for something you can do easily yourself? Do you recall how it felt? Perhaps you wondered if they thought you were stupid or incapable. Perhaps you felt insulted. Maybe you just felt judged, or judged unfairly.

It is frustrating enough to not be able to easily do something you have done all your life, but when you add the frustration of feeling insulted, it leaves you feeling helpless or angry or both. If you feel that way, then perhaps you can understand why your repeated offers of help may not be the very thing your older parent most wants to hear.

There is a sense of self pride we have about the basic things we just do automatically. Frankly, it is not really someone else’s business. Then suddenly people begin talk to you like they are in charge of your personal self-care.

How can you help someone that does not yet accept that they need help . . . and do so with love?

Will Happiness and Laughter Avoid Dementia?

Have a positive attitude toward life and use laughter to improve your brain health.

The New York Times reported on old masters at the top of their game. One of the people featured was Ginette Bedard from Queens, New York because she ran a marathon of 26 miles at age 82! That was her 12th consecutive New York City Marathon. Her first was at age 69. She said, “…I think I was 72 when I beat the world record for my age group.” She says she thinks of her past, childhood in France, or everything, her past job, current events. She plans to keep running marathons until destiny takes her away.

That’s a positive attitude about life. Your outlook on aging can impact your brain health.* “What we think impacts how we feel physically and emotionally.”* — from Psychology Today.

A Yale University study found that, “engaging in mentally stimulating activities such as reading, writing and playing games can improve brain health.” Why not work on this to reduce your risk of dementia? “From their control group of 4,765 people with an average age of 72, those who carried a gene variant linked to dementia — but also had positive attitudes about aging — were 50% less likely to develop the disorder.” The way we face our age seems to make the difference. This is a reminder to enjoy life. It will help you be healthier and lead a more fulfilling life.

Realistically, how many of us can run marathons? It takes real motivation to train every day for such a feat. Here are other tips for leading a more positive life. “The secret to changing your life with a resolution is to keep it simple and make it tangible.”
