WHAT to do with the rest of your life?


Del Lowery Retirement Talk is an audio podcast (written script a click away) intended to help people who are retired, or considering retirement, to examine their own lives. We will consider an active retirement life in all its facets - not just financial. A retirement lifestyle that has been considered  carefully is our goal. We want to encourage thought and action." Del Lowery - Host

391 Exercise for the Brain

New studies indicate physical exercises do more for the mind than we might have imagined. Sure we can do crosswords or study a foreign language but perhaps we would be better off walking quickly around the block.

390 Working after Retirement?


We would all like to follow our bliss. It would be nice to be paid for doing what we love. Retirement may offer us this opportunity. It works for some.

389 End of Life Choice


Ending one's own life is a choice we all make. We either do or we don't. The twists of life events sometimes make that choice shift in value. It is something we might do well to consider rather than ignore for our own good as well as others.

388 Personal Experience


In this podcast I read a letter from a Sherri Robinson telling of her retirement experience. She is a listener and has given retirement some serious thought. Here she shares some of her ideas and suggestions. You are welcome to do the same.

387 Frustration


Life has a way of throwing frustration into our life that is well grounded and frustration that has no basis. Regardless of cause frustration has to be confronted.

386 Distraction


Creating and maintaining a retirement of one's own choosing isn't easy. Outside forces assault our own thoughts, intentions and actions constantly. Retaining a sense of self requires constant vigilance.

385 Staying Fit?


Staying fit has come to be associated with physical fitness. But that isn't the only thing for which we need to be fit. We might want to keep that in mind as we add the years. It might make us feel better about ourselves.

384 Food & Retirement


Retirement brings with it time to Indulgence in what we like best and for many of us that is eating. Our health can suffer dramatically. We find ourselves unable to do much other than eat some more. What to do?

383 Death - Being Prepared


Sometimes there are subjects we just don't want to face. Death is one. We have a hard time considering or discussing our own death. There is a new approach that might be worth investigating called the Death Cafe.
