The Aspen Tree Advises Retiring Border Police across Thailand on Happy Retirement
The Aspen Tree, an expert in holistic care for older adults under the concept of “A Community for Healthy Living and Lifetime Care”, organized the “Happy Life in Retirement” seminar to help 800 border police plan a happy, fulfilling retirement through physical, mental, and financial well-being while adjusting to the “New Normal”, at The Zign Hotel in Pattaya, Chonburi.
This seminar brought together 3 expert speakers. Mr. Taweesook Thammasak, an investment advisor at DTGO Corporation Limited, spoke on sustainable financial management. Mr. Jatupol Chompoonich (Ajarn Shane), the famous speaker and health advisor, shared insights on psychological well-being in retirement. Ms. Wipattra Totemchokchaikarn, a Foresight Researcher at the Future Tales Lab by MQDC, a futurology center, presented on healthy lifestyles for older adults.
Mr. Thammasak, an investment advisor at DTGO, said that border patrol officers must ensure their financial security in retirement through proper pension management.
“Many retirees are interested in financial investments so should carry out in-depth research as every investment has risks. All retirees must also carefully allocate their income and expenses. Many of you still have debts to pay and should avoid unnecessary spending,” he said.
Mr. Jatupol Chompoonich (Ajarn Shane), the famous speaker, emphasized connection with the community and society to create a bright and energetic mindset for older adults.
“Older adults who are part of the community or society, engaged in activities with other generations, can continue to contribute to society and those around them, giving them pride and a sense of their own worth,” he said.
Ms. Wipattra Totemchokchaikarn, a Foresight Researcher at FutureTales Lab by MQDC, recommended that retired border patrol officers pay attention to diet and exercise to reduce health issues.
“Some older adults may face conditions such as Alzheimer’s or diseases of aging. But we can all contribute to our own well-being by maintaining our health through choosing healthy foods and being disciplined about exercise. If we are already in good physical health, our mental health will be strong and ready to cope with the changes in retirement. Both environment and our daily schedule help us adjust to society around us happily,” she said.
