Hey, Boomer is a show for people who believe (or want to believe) that we are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.
On the show, we learn together and share stories. We find new beginnings and confront endings and transitions. We are evolving, not retiring.
With our guests, we explore how to make our retirement years the best years of our lives. They share real-life stories of finding purpose, fulfillment, and joy through staying engaged in life, travel, social involvement, adventure, and creative endeavors.
Mark Twain said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
Purpose is your natural way of being and your purpose may change over your lifetime. It is not static. When we leave our careers many of us lose our sense of identity and then we lose our reason to get up in the morning.
Anna Hall worked in senior living communities, and she saw how the residents that had a sense of purpose were more resilient, they were happier, had better mental health and motivation for each day. This sparked her research and the development of The Purpose Equation.
The secret ingredient that fuels your innate purpose is tapping into your sense of joy. Anna has an experience that she takes you through called JoyFuel. We talk about what I discovered when I went through this experience with her.
We also talked about the impact of understanding our individual purpose and joy, as well as understanding that of our partners or our co-workers improves relationships, increases patience and understanding.
- Humans need a sense of meaning to thrive.
- How do you like to help people? Digging into that can help you discover joy and purpose.
- Everyone has a purpose inside. It is with you and accessible.
- Purpose is not a role or a goal
- Purpose helps improve health, wellness, outlook and mindset.
Thanks so much for listening.
