Untethered Aging is a pragmatic self-help guidebook for seniors living into the unprecedented new normal of a post-Covid-19 world. Boomers face greater income, wellness, and affordability challenges in retirement, and due to longer lifespans, for more years than planned.
Aging successfully requires a commitment to creating your life rather than waiting for it to happen to you. Our world is spinning faster than at any point in history. Successful aging and living in late adulthood require being self-reliant, mindful, adaptive, and perpetually curious. This book takes you through a thoughtful and easy-to-understand, how-to process.
Untethered Aging offers well-researched facts and pragmatic approaches for aging seniors (and those who care about them) to understand and deal with: The blur of technological and other external change; Income challenges, financial insufficiency and the affordability of necessities; autonomy, physical and psychological well-being in a post-Covid-19 world; the practical pursuit of meaning, purpose and contributing to the Greater Good; consideration of existential questions ("Why do I exist?") and end-of-life readiness; the creation of a simple personal legacy; and creating your own wellness support network.
Untethered Aging is the truth-telling field manual for successful aging, from an author who is living it. If you plan to retire eventually, are a caregiver, have aging parents, or are concerned about the seniors in your family or community, this book is a must-read.
