The term retirement used to symbolize an out-of-date lifestyle that many associated with living without any purpose. In the 60’s, the image of retirement may have been grandma making sweet tea, while grandpa chews on a piece of wheat and sways in a rocking chair on the front porch. Fortunately, if you are a senior, the times have changed, and with it the old stigma around retirement. With the constant evolution of medication and technology, seniors are living longer and stronger than ever. With CaraVita, retirement is not the end of a journey but the start of a whole new adventure!
There are new possibilities for you and other seniors now because of the exchange, and amount of knowledge available. With this information exchange, we know what foods, extracts, and even oils have the most impact on your health. A few decades ago doctors used to recommend smoking cigarettes, and now we know that cigarettes are one of the leading causes of heart disease and lung cancer. Our medication and health technology have also significantly evolved. According to the USC Keck Medicine, technology has produced wearable sensors, new genetics to fight superbugs, and even cancer vaccines. With all this new health information seniors can live longer and healthier.
Seniors like you are redefining retirement and the technology is not the only reason why. The structure of jobs has changed greatly in the past few decades. Nowadays there are positions where you can gain an influx of cash in a short amount of time. Some of these new platforms are Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, and selling platforms such as eBay. With platforms like these, you can still have an income whenever you may want even after you have retired from a full-time job.
Age Is Just A Number
The saying is true. Age is really just a number. With new technology and opportunities, you can achieve things seniors have not been able to in the past. Our current president, Donald Trump, was 70 years old when he was elected president of the United States. Similar statistics have also been proven true in pop culture. Look at the well-known actress, Betty White, she is currently in her early nineties and is more popular than ever! Also, Cher is 71 years old and still touring on concerts while looking amazing! All these amazing seniors are breaking the retirement stigma and you can too! CaraVita sees retirement as being redefined and reshaped and we want you to do it your own way!
