Having a purpose in life gives you something to strive for and helps you feel fulfilled. It can also help you stay active and engaged, which is important for maintaining your health and well-being as you age. When you retire, you may have more time to pursue your passions and make a difference in the world. A sense of purpose can also help you cope with the challenges of aging, such as loneliness and loss.

Lifestyle Purpose Statement (LPS)
Definition: A LPS is a concise, understandable, and definitive description of your hopes and what impact you want to create during this period of your life. It should define the reason for your existence, how you will exist, and what satisfaction you will get for what you plan to do.
Just as companies create vision and mission statements to chart the course of their business plans and strategies, crafting an LPS helps you create a roadmap to what will be important to your daily approach.
