Life is nothing but a great balancing act. In our youth, we juggle as many as up to 9 subjects in school. Just as you thought the days of juggling was over, you came face-to-face with multitasking at the workforce. It doesn’t matter whether you are the dynamic type who thrives on action and challenges, or the more deliberate and steady ones. All of us need to find our balance in this fast-paced society.
A balanced life comprises of a balanced heart, mind and strength. A balanced heart is easily attained with a moderate diet and healthy lifestyle. However, most women are teetering on tight ropes when they try to find their equilibrium in mind and strength.
Due to our newly found status as independent women in the 21st century, we wear more hats than usual, and basically do life on our own. Yet at the same time, it leaves us more vulnerable to imbalances as we transit to the retirement stage. By the time retirement rolls around, we may not find ourselves as joyful as we desire it to be. To counter this potential pitfall, focused planning for a balanced retirement is the key to retire happy.
Additional concerns such as “Have we adequately mitigated life risks, and cultivated regular income streams for our golden years?” are part of the happy retirement equation that needs addressing.
