Retired? Now is the Time to Take Charge

by Claude Sancartier

Time is passing. It just doesn’t last as long as we would like it to last. Although it may seem like just yesterday you were raising your children, those years have passed, you are retired, and now your kids are raising their own children. But, before you let any more time slip pass, start thinking of your future.

Although you can not to go back and adjust time, implementing changes in your diet, your exercise, your mental and financial health will allow you to find the necessary tools to excel in the years to come. One thing is certain, if you take charge now without wasting any more time, you will be able to make a big difference in the quality in your future.

The good news is, most of the damage that you’ve done to your body can be reversed if you take action rapidly and are dedicated to making it happen. With just a few minutes of care to your lifestyle every day, you can get back some of the shape you have possibly lost. Don’t think it has to go on forever. You are retired and you don’t have to live a life that’s super “clean” and yes, you can make mistakes, eat that fatty hamburger and still watch reality television if it makes you happy. All you have to remember is to do certain things in moderation.

Here are a few important issues you should look at and may want to consider changing.

  • Diet … are you eating healthy?
  • Attitude … are you happy with yourself?
  • Finances … are you satisfied with the amount of money you have and will need in the future?
  • Physical Fitness … are you in shape? Exercise minimizes future health problems and is a quick way to improve attitude.
  • Lifestyle … are you satisfied? What changes would you like to make?

Now is the time to take charge of your life. Don’t count on time as an ally because it won’t wait for you.
