The Refirement Zone

firewrks

To retire is to end something. It does not necessarily mean we have completed that something, or that something is over. We retire at the end of the day to go to sleep, but the day is not over; we fully expect to rise again the next day and begin again. We sleep because we are tired, but we hope to be energized the next day. Many people look forward to retirement from their work so that they might do nothing ever again.

But if you took that approach with sleeping, I bet you’d stay awake.

I dislike the word “retirement.” The AARP recently dropped “retirement” from its acronym (in fact, it’s not an acronym at all, but is now on echoic of a tiny dog barking “arp! arp!” to match their new mascot, a Malt-York-Shitz-Poo-Terrier with fleas). This is the 21st century and the concept of retirement needs a major facelift–I call it entering the “Refirement Zone”.

As host of the radio talk show “Boomers Rock” it is my passion, my mission and my zest for all things fun that drives me to build our social collective, keeping us boomers active and socially integrated and on top of our games.

Once you enter the “Refirement Zone” it is all about igniting your life, finding that “thing” that brings joy, keeps you active, and connects you to friends. It’s learning from each other and loving our lives.

Igniting your life is not about looking back; it is about living in the moment and building a successful future that holds an exciting, empowering energized state of mind unparalleled in its force. It is the collective state of mind that drives us into the “Refirement Zone.”

Baby Boomers have an unprecedented opportunity to rebuild the perception of retirement. We have access to medical care, access to knowledge about nutrition, fitness, and psychological well-being, and convenient access to new ideas about our world. If you are 65 years old, you potentially have another 35 years to go; the quality of those years are influenced most by your attitude, approach, and habits! At 65 you are way too young to do nothing, and at 48 you still may have young children to put through elementary school. You could have softball and soccer games in your coaching future, bake sales and football rallies, teaching kids to ride a bike or how to swim. It will be limited primarily by your beliefs.

Your imagination and initiative can open a new world of possibilities.

It is use or lose it, that is my message to all of us!

I like to talk about this tipping point in our society when all of us enter the “Boomers Rock” collective, join the “Refirement Zone” movement, ignite our lives and lead. Take our collective knowledge, passion for life, wisdom and experience and change the world, just like the 60’s and 70’s, there was no sitting around, it was time for expansion of creativity, thought and energy. Creationism at its finest and a collective mindset that changed history; that is where we find ourselves again, our collective is going to be known as the “Boomers Rock Generation”, where giving back to society, helping others and looking forward to our future is the collective mindset, we are not going to allow entitlement programs bother us as they shrivel and disappear. We are going to be self- sufficient, empowered, enlightened and have strength in our collective voice, that my friends is my view of the future, join me for an exciting ride.

To advance this movement, look for my blog entries here on VoiceAmerica. I will write about the best ideas from my radio show that we discuss for improving your quality of life. Improve your life every day, Ignite your life ‘now’! Peace Tom tom@boomersrock.us

Do Less – Achieve More By Dr. Paula Joyce

wisdom

Conventional wisdom says that in order to succeed, you must work long hours. The truth is that our left brain, the logical thinking part of our mind, can only function at optimum for one and a half to two hours, and then it needs a break. If you’re one of those people who “chains yourself” to the desk until you get the job done, you’re not using your native resources wisely.

Recently a friend asked me, “What’s the one thing you’ve done this year to create more energy for yourself?” I was surprised to hear myself say: “I allow myself to stop working when I hit that energy wall.” You know what I mean—that point where you have the inner dialogue that goes something like: “I’m tired, but I’m almost finished. I really want to get this done tonight so I can cross it off my ‘To Do’ list. Yes, I’m tired, but I can do it.” Yes you can; you can get that second wind, push through your low energy and get the job done. Then in the morning, you ignore the fact that you’re tired, down your cup or two of coffee and convince yourself that you’re fine.

There is a price to pay, however, and it’s a high one. We can do this every now and then but eventually we deplete our energy. A much more effective strategy is to remind ourselves that almost everything can wait. These days I ask myself: “What will happen if this doesn’t get done today?” The answer is almost always “nothing.” Most deadlines are artificial or of our own making.

I work more efficiently and effectively by taking five to ten minute breaks every one and a half to two hours. Instead of (or in addition to) the standard coffee break, I choose from other options that feed my mind, body and/or spirit, such as:

  • Moving: taking a short walk or doing a few stretches
  • Enjoying natural beauty: taking in the flowers on my desk or outside my window
  • Smiling: looking at photos of my family or remembering something joyful
  • Creating: doodling with crayons, colored markers or colored pens
  • Nourishing my body: snacking on fruit and nuts

Creativity happens when the brain is at rest. Giving yourself some breaks during the day, allows the creative flow to emerge. When you can’t remember a fact, you stop thinking about it and it comes into your mind. This same concept holds true when you are doing a project at work. Give yourself a break and you get the ideas you need.

Yes, this advice flies in the face of everything you’ve been taught. Remember what Einstein said: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different  results.”  So do something different and look for the spectacular results!
