Boomers – Want to Live Longer? Get Involved!

Time and again, medical reports have shown that a major key to a longer (and more enjoyable) life is to get involved. In what? It doesn’t matter. Just keep physically and mentally active.

I read about three books weekly, run several home-based businesses, am active in a local Toastmaster club, play golf weekly and either go to the gym or do a bike ride every day. And “Yes,” I do have those morning aches when getting out of bed in the morning. But that just comes with age. The important thing is I feel alive. I’m squeezing the most out of every day because life is precious and I don’t intend to waste any of it!

I hope your life is invigorating too. When I see fellow Boomers just letting the days go by, spending their time watching TV while their mental and physical health decline, I want to scream “Wake up! This is it. Live your life to the fullest because the end is on the horizon.”

Not convinced? Take a look at these short articles:

One of my favorite quotes is by Hunter S. Thompson:

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

Wake up. Have adventures. Try new things. Show love to everyone and witness how it comes back to you. Make your bucket list and commit to fulfilling it. Be alive.

I urge my fellow Baby Boomers to heed this wisdom. Life is short. Die without regrets, my friends.
