October 2, 2019
Hosted by Alise Cortez, PhD
As advances in medicine extend the lifespan, baby boomers and traditionalists are finding they have more years to live and experience life, post careers. Perspectives and even definitions of retirement need changing to usher in the choice of living life as either “an elder or old fart,” as Susan Sokol Blosser likes to say. In this episode, we talk about the new frontier of retirement, which includes managing loss, recapturing joy, and living with gratitude and generativity, which provides powerful purpose and energy to enthusiastically embrace aging.
