Faith and Family: Empty Nest Syndrome Tips for thriving in midlifecomment (0)

October 11, 2012

  • Be careful of your focus. Acknowledge and enjoy your past, but focus on your future.
  • Be aware of your potential. You may be able to afford going on that missions trip that you could not previously afford. You may have time for volunteer work in your church or with a local ministry. 
  • Make a list of things you would like to accomplish in the next decade. These may be financial, personal, relational or spiritual accomplishments. Periodically check yourself to see how you are doing at accomplishing these goals.
  • Invest in other people. Be a good steward of your relationships. Look for ways to rekindle your relationship with your spouse. Find things you can enjoy doing with your adult children. Be intentional in socializing with friends.
  • Make sure your life has a purpose. Create your own personal purpose statement and use it as a filter to make decisions. Make sure what you are doing is consistent with your self-proclaimed purpose.
  • Make an intentional effort to be physically healthy. Begin or continue an exercise program. Get annual physicals. Drink more water and eat less sugar and fat. Be cautious of caffeine consumption.
