Baby boomers (stock.xchng)

Baby boomers have special needs. However, it is still possible to have lasting happiness with the following ingredients:

1. Health: This is the time for the baby boomers to enjoy the carefree years. However, life is only enjoyable when you are in good health. Live a healthy lifestyle. Eat a balanced diet, breath in a lot of fresh air. Be physically active every day.

2. Companion: Life is more fulfilling when there is some one to share your happiness and sadness and a shoulder to cry on when the need arises. It is more meaningful when you can communicate with each other the ups and downs of life.

3. Money: Money may not bring you happiness but without money life is going to be miserable. Make sure that the retirement fund is sufficient to last as long as you live and the fund is also able to generate passive income for you.

4. Shelter: Ascertain that the house that you live is owned by you. Do not be too happy to sell your own house and move in to live with one of your children. How sure can you be that you will be able to live there until the end of your life?

5. Friendship: A healthy relationship is the thing that keeps the baby boomers occupied in mind and in spirits. Enjoying an afternoon tea with your friends and making a trip to somewhere together are some of the wonderful things to do in life,

6. Lifelong learning: Keep yourself meaningfully occupied by learning new things. Blogging is one of those things that you should take up. There are a lot of things to learn every day when you surf the net. You can tweet, write on the wall and post your articles, get comments about your posts and you can look at your Traffic Rank every now and then. It’s exciting and there is always something to look forward to every day.

7. Positive mental attitude: Be cheerful and look at the bright side of things. Life may not be a bed of roses, but when you decide to be cheerful and look positively at the years ahead of you, you will be happy.

According to a Chinese newspaper it refers to baby boomers as the age of sunshine and happiness (阳光乐龄yang guang le ling). Enjoy your sunshine years and be happy!
