Stay Active and Engaged

First things first – keep moving! Whether it’s a morning walk, gardening, or joining a pickleball league, staying active is crucial. The Big 65 recently sponsored a tournament in Columbus, Ohio. I hear from clients across the country how much they enjoy the game. I’m pleased to say David and Pam attended and participated.

Pam is actually a professional pickleball player and instructor. This woman is so fit she may never die 😊.

Regular physical activity helps maintain mobility, balance, and overall health. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to socialize.

Stay Connected

Maintain strong social ties. Family, friends, community groups—these connections keep us happy and grounded. I ran into Bill at Home Depot and just by reconnecting and saying hello, both of us felt better.

And if you enjoy traveling like my wife and I do, use it as an opportunity to meet new people and experience new things.

Last weekend, we attended a Bourbon and Bacon festival with Susanna and her boyfriend. All three of them practiced moderation, but I was a bit of a pig 🐷😂.

It was great to spend time with Sus and KC and while we were in the mountains, we discovered the world’s first aqua doodle 🐩💧, good old Plato!

Find Joy in the Little Things

Take time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life: a cup of coffee at a cozy café, a walk through town, or a quiet moment in your garden. These small moments add up to a fulfilling life.

Regular Check ups

Stay on top of your health with regular check-ups. Early detection of potential issues can make a big difference. And of course, make sure your Medicare coverage is up to date to avoid any surprises. Preventive health checks are the most important thing we can do to maintain good health.
