As a behavioral scientist and Essence coach, I am known as the Queen of Courage, after working 50+ years in the corporate world. Being a maximizer, I love to bring out the best in people. I am passionate about helping others find their joy. I help you repurpose your unique talent, experience, knowledge and values into your defined Spark so that your life becomes an effortless and priceless expression of you. Perhaps you can relate to the years I felt invisible in my career. Then retired, I wondered how I’d know if I was productive. Imagine knowing what makes you thrive, proud and confident, feeling you have more to share with the world, and enjoying the grand feeling of loving life again. I inspire you to live from your uniqueness and Spark so that every day feels ideal, filled with joy, satisfaction and fulfillment.

Ways To Stay Active and Engaged in Retirement

Retirement Remix: Thriving in the Encore Chapter of Life

Pursue lifelong learning: Enroll in courses, workshops, or online programs to continue expanding your knowledge and acquiring new skills or learning a new language. Lifelong learning stimulates the aging brain and helps to promote cognitive health. 

Stay physically active: Engage in regular exercise or physical activities that you enjoy. Physical activity not only keeps you fit but also helps maintain your energy levels and overall well-being.

Volunteer: Contribute your time and skills to a cause or organization that you care about. Volunteering not only benefits others but also provides a sense of purpose and fulfillment.

Engage in social activities: Stay connected with friends, family, and your community. Join clubs, social groups, or local organizations to meet new people, participate in events, and share experiences.

Embrace technology: Keep up with technological advancements to stay connected with the modern world. Learn how to use smartphones, social media, and other digital tools to stay in touch with loved ones and access information.

Explore hobbies and interests: Rediscover or pursue new hobbies that bring you joy. Whether it’s gardening, painting, playing a musical instrument, cooking, or writing, engaging in activities you love keeps your mind engaged and spirits high.

Travel and explore: Take advantage of your newfound freedom and explore new places, whether locally or globally. Travel broadens your horizons, exposes you to new cultures, and creates lasting memories.

Stay mentally active: Challenge your brain by solving puzzles, playing strategy games, reading books, or engaging in activities that require mental stimulation. This helps maintain cognitive abilities and keeps your mind sharp.

Stay up to date: Keep abreast of current events, cultural trends, and developments in areas of interest to you. Read newspapers, magazines, or online articles, watch documentaries, or listen to podcasts to stay informed and engaged.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle: Focus on maintaining a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and managing stress. Prioritize self-care and engage in activities that promote your physical and emotional well-being.
