When we think about retirement we all dream of a happy and vibrant life. However, This new life that we looked forward to could be less exciting as we expected, and cause negative thoughts and feelings of loneliness to take over. Today’s guest is Agnes Loughlin. She spent over 2 decades lost in a life of busy-ness and disconnect from Joy. She now helps others to become aware of their situation and realize that something needs to change. In this episode we dive deeper into the causes of loneliness and the mistakes that keep us stuck. Our modern society has perhaps forced us to sacrifice connections with friends to make time for everything else. But being alone does not necessarily lead to loneliness. Listen to this enlightening conversation so you know the signs and learn simple action steps to have more connection and joy. Because asking deep and meaningful questions is the way to find what is really true in our hearts that allows us to focus on what gives us joy. When we feel fully alive, then we engage in life for our highest potential and retirement becomes the best time of our life. Agnes offers two free gifts: Top 10 Ways to Have More Joy and Connection Today (ebook) and a Meditation to Embrace and Expand in Love.
