How Important is Purposeful Aging?

Because of more than 50 years of working with people, and particularly because of my coaching work and my work with Encore Palm Beach County, I am aware that many retired people do not have a sense of purpose in their lives. They may be busy playing golf or cards and feel no need for a feeling of purpose. I certainly don’t feel everyone MUST be involved with purposeful activity, but many studies have shown that having purpose and being engaged with that purpose, is a key to healthy aging. But don’t take my word for it.
