What do an artist, a long-distance runner and a body builder all have in common? For starters, they are all women at the top of their game and they are all over 80 years young. While some of us act old at 30, other people manage to keep their spirit young throughout their entire life and they don’t let their age define them. The three women that are profiled here not only are amazing at what they do but they achieved their success later in life proving that it is never too late to be your best self!
While there are many benefits of retirement, there are also some adjustments that many people need to make in order to transition to this next phase of life. While most of us do not miss the stress that came along with our careers, we do miss the mental stimulation. There is also less social interaction when you don’t go to an office every day. However, instead of dwelling on the downsides, think of all the things you have always wanted to do but never got around to doing. Remember that art history class that you wanted to take but never had time? Or what about when you wanted to learn how to make the perfect lasagna or become a wine connoisseur?
