Maybe you don't realize it yet but Health, Wealth and Happiness are already within your grasp, you just need to focus more on the present moment. Some baby boomers think they should slow down and take it easy just because they are getting older. However, for optimum health and wellbeing, it is important to maintain an active life. It is easy, and sometimes tempting, for older people to think they deserve to sleep late every day and lounge about the house doing very little. This type of attitude will only encourage laziness and perhaps even ill health. People who remain active after retiring from their regular jobs are usually healthier as well as happier.

Regular exercise is important for people of all ages, but baby boomers especially, whose daily routines may not include very much physical activity, need to develop a habit of daily exercise. People who dislike doing exercises can still make themselves devote ten minutes a day to stretching, bending and other simple forms of exercise. They will not mind the exercising as much if it is just for a short time. If you are not accustomed to exercising, start slowly with just three repetitions of each movement, and gradually work up to 10 or 12 repetitions. It is easier to exercise when your stomach is empty, so make it a habit to do a few quick exercises before breakfast each morning while listening to some upbeat music. A brisk walk of at least 30 minutes four or five times a week will prove beneficial as well and give you a good reason to be outside in the fresh air. It gets you on the right pathe to enjoy good health and lasting happiness.

Enjoy being active with sports like golf, tennis, cycling, skiing, swimming or jogging. Join a health club, which will give you the opportunity to interact with others as you increase your fitness. If you have the space, plant a garden. Not only will it give you some healthy exercise, but the food you harvest will be nutritious and tasty as well. People who maintain an active life as they get older usually do not feel like they are old.

Eating healthy food is important for everyone, and people who are getting older should try to eat balanced meals as much as possible. However, it is difficult to get all the daily nutrition you need from food as you are getting older. The quality of the food we buy is not as good as it used to be, so it will be helpful to take some high quality nutritional supplements that boost your natural glutathione levels to enhance your wellbeing and happiness.

Do not neglect your spiritual wellbeing as you improve your physical body. Spend some time every day in prayer or meditation, and give thanks for all your blessings. True happines is found deep within yourself, from accepting your value as a person and from helping others. If you have any negative thoughts, replace them by thinking about positive things. Try to see the good in people and in situations, and look for the beauty that is all around us. An optimistic attitude can actually help you feel happy and contented.

Happiness and Wealth in Retirement for Baby Boomers

When you no longer must work every day to earn a living, look at it as an opportunity to travel, do new things, learn new things, enjoy a variety of social activities and perhaps serve others in some way. When you volunteer your time to help people, you will bring happiness to yourself as well as to those you help.

Baby boomers moving into retirement can plan a trip to a place they have always wanted to visit. In fact, they may find that the planning is nearly as much fun as the trip itself. If you do not have the funds or the time to take a long trip, go for short drives to nearby places. You do not have to travel very far to find interesting museums, art galleries and other fascinating places. You can also enjoy a day at a beach or park, and watch a beautiful sunrise or sunset there.

Never stop learning. Keep up with the news, and consider taking some courses in subjects that interest you. If you do not have access to a university, look online for courses that you could take to improve your mind. Take up a new hobby, or learn more about your current hobby. There are many things you can do to enjoy a healthy active life. Visit our website where you will get some great ideas about living your life to the Max!

Active Healthy Lifestyle in Retirement

The BLOG will contain an extensive range of information on topics related to baby boomers, e.g. interesting places to visit, great things to do and motivation on keeping fit and healthy. It also offers tips on how to build wealth and achieve financial independence by having your own home based business.

Now is a great time of life to explore further self-improvement, there's all sorts of courses available; hobby related, serious academic pursuits (many folks get a degree later in life) or join the largely social activities of the University of the Third Age.

The central idea is to encourage baby boomers to believe they can live full lives unhindered by aging. They don't feel old; however many of them could benefit from some good advice on eating healthy food and getting regular exercise. Put 3 to 5 years serious effort into building your own network marketing business so you can enjoy your golden years knowing you have a significant residual income stream to support the lifestyle you have always dreamed of having in your retirement.

Simple Lifestyle Changes

Spirituality - I'm not sure if this is something that would work for your lifestyle BLOG, but I can share my experience about spirituality that I learned when I got sober. I had a lot of resentments towards organized religion, and I was an agnostic. In order to get sober, I had to find a higher power of my understanding. In the process, I had to learn how to separate religion from spirituality, and giving up my false idea of control and self-will was the best thing for me to live a serene life.

Acceptance - accepting situations for what they are instead of dwelling on why they didn't work out the way I wanted them to. Living in the present moment with an attitude of gratitude is the key to my recent successful "sober" lifestyle.

Having an optimistic outlook on life situations - I have a ton of examples of situations that would have caused me to be angry, sad or upset, but now I'm able to look on the bright side of things and feel a lot happier. This ties into spirituality and thinking that maybe the situation happened for a reason and it wasn't supposed to happen the way I wanted to.

Expectations are equal to serenity - I have found that a lot of the times that I'm upset are because I set high expectations of people, places and situations. By managing my expectations, I'm able to have more peace and better health as a result.

Causing my own problems - one of my favorite quotes in the AA big book is, "We make decisions based on self that later place us in a position to be hurt." As people, we often point the finger at everyone else when something bad happens, but we don't want to take any responsibility for the situation. I've learned that I can often trace the steps back to a decision I made, which put me in the exact situation that I'm in. This isn't meant to be negative self-talk, but it's to learn from past experiences to have a better future with greater happiness.
