MindFULL Musings - 60 and Counting!
Show Notes

Today’s episode is a short MindFULL Musing on turning 60. I share an essay, Hind Sight, written by Wendy Reiger, a 60 year old news anchor who passed away in the Spring of 2022, and a mention from McKinsey on Point, a daily newsletter from McKinsey and Company, on “What is the 60+ economy really worth?” Turning 60 is a milestone and it’s worth trillions, on many levels. Let’s celebrate!

 #1 Takeaway from Wendy’s essay:

  1. Don’t look back

Takeaways From McKinsey on Point: 

  1. The Longevity Concept  - older adults are living much greater lives with longer health spans (the healthy periods of a person’s life), which enables them to be productive and to contribute to society
  2. This new concept is worth over $8 TRILLION
  3. Physical balance is linked to longevity. Those who can stand on one leg for a period of time, tend to live longer. LOL! Stand like a flamingo, for :30 seconds, on each leg.
