Are you creative? Studies show that having a higher purpose in life significantly reduces the risk of death among older adults and can even slow or prevent cognitive decline. Many people find their purpose through creative pursuits. Come hear from your peers about how being creative in their "next chapter" has been rewarding to them and see samples of their creativity. Some of the folks sell their creations, some use their talents to give back to the community, some create to fill the purpose void that some of us feel when we leave our primary careers. Perhaps you will be inspired to further explore your creative nature.
