Age + Change = a new beginning

Brandy Wismer

Do you have a “Holistic Successful Aging Plan?”

Aging is happening whether we like it or not. You probably have a retirement plan, a life insurance plan or a funeral plan. But do you have a plan on how to stay as happy and healthy as possible until you die? Why not create a plan focused around the steps you need to take now to be able to age successfully during your second and third acts?

There are six steps to creating your Holistic Successful Aging Plan. Spend some time honestly thinking about and answering the following questions.

1. Create a vision for you of “successful aging,” i.e. if you had your magic wand, what do you want your life to look and feel like five, 10, 15 years from now?

2. What is the “gap” between where you are now and where you want to be to achieve your vision? What changes need to be made?

3. Why do you want these changes, and how strong is your desire to make the change to achieve your vision?

4. What would prevent you from making this change or changes?

5. Develop a plan for getting where you want to go and how you will implement it.

6. Tweak and reinforce what you have learned about changing the behavior and what actually worked for you and use that knowledge to ground your new behaviors and strengthen and secure these new routines until they become habits.

Are you ready to take charge of your future so you can reach those goals? Would you like to create healthy behaviors that you can sustain for the rest of your life? Are you ready to lose that extra weight forever or exercise daily without fighting it or stop eating foods that you know are not healthy for you today?
