How do you choose to age? By default or by design? Because we live in an age-denying society, most of us are not inclined to anticipate the future challenges and opportunities encountered as we age. Life happens. We react. A common scenario resulting in a less than desirable journey. So, how can you increase the odds that you will experience an EXTRAordinary life—a life that you love? First, understand the aging process (all facets). Second, identify traveling companions. Third, evaluate the environment. And finally, discern what fills you up, brings you joy, and gets you out of bed every day! Don’t let life happen to you. Instead, Age By Design—YOUR Design!
1. By understanding the process of aging, you can then anticipate the inevitable changes and design a preferred plan for aging.
2. Seriously consider with whom you would prefer to share the journey of aging.
3. Location—the environment—is a critical factor in the aging process. Where can you age well
4. Contemplate and discern the “why” of your life. What puts a bounce in your step? What gets your heart racing and ignites your imagination?
