Could the Sixties be the Greatest Years of your life?
The thought process has been similar to most people. With old age comes a particular fear - not irrational or unnecessary but a feeling of worry and being scared for the self. It doesn’t matter how many resources are available. The financial backup that you have does offer security, but it does not entirely do away with the nagging feeling that you are growing old and that things would not be the same ever again.
Why is this feeling so familiar especially amongst those who are heading into their sixties? This is because, from this age group, it is a whole different ball game altogether. The entire mindset slowly starts to revolve around a factor that you cannot control or avoid – the age. While some people start frowning upon turning 40 and 50, a fear factor starts creeping in when some turn sixty.
The focus is more or less on age-related problems such as aches and pain, money and independence, which is a very natural thought process. But the question that we need to ask ourselves is - how much are our decisions going to be affected by what could never happen? Statistics state that we are more often than not worried about what has never happened.
That is one point of view. Let’s take the other side. Yes, there are always two sides to a story. And the other one is the happier version of turning 60. It is a version that could make you embrace life as you would have hoped but let slide because of various reasons, other priorities, commitments that you cannot shake. Factors that you have no control over.
Science says that your mind has the power to make you feel happy and healthy if you let it. What you do every day, the little things, the tiny habits; they are the things that can make you a whole different person. Activities that tell you that it is not too late to start anything new. To continue what was left halfway. Learn new ways to look at the world.
The sixties could be the highest years of your life if you only let it. And it is easier than it sounds. Start with baby steps. Learn a new hobby. Connect with old friends. Start a startup. Take a trip. There is no limit to what you can do if you only let it.
You are probably wondering about the fact that it could be physically impossible to do so many things if your body cannot handle that. This is why we recommend another way out. A regular health check delivered to your door to make sure that you are fit to do what you love.

Persons born in 50—-60—-70 are real lucky to have seen the world emerge Soo well. We are also lucky to have been in an age were savings mattered with own house which gives us better retired life.
I live in retirement complex, Tapovan in coimbatore. The life is like an hostel life, many of us might have missed, but without the hostel restrictions.
It’s really good to live amoung our age group and people to talk to on the same wave length. Children also worry about our safety and needs, lucky generation. They also visit us once a year and have good time and many happy not to do any work at hone, as Al of us enjoy centralised kitchen and worry free housekeeping and other maintenance works.
There will be two sides to life, but mostly it is good retired life.
