#84: How To Pivot Into Your Next Life (Joan Lunden)

March 13 2020

“It’s been 20 years since I left Good Morning America,” says Joan Lunden, author of the new book, Why Did I Come Into This Room?: A Candid Conversation About Aging.  “I have an incredibly robust career in health. This is my new reinvention.” Lunden speaks with CoveyClub founder Lesley Jane Seymour about her three keys to happiness:


1. Staying engaged in life

2. Keeping social connections well beyond the family

3. Cultivating a sense of purpose —”that can be as simple as planting a garden.”


Lunden believes that with 76 million Boomers at this pivot point we need to have open discussions about reinventing. To have a “life well-lived” Lunden says we need “to let go of things that don’t matter. Ask yourself: ‘Am I kind? Am I there for people?’ That will let you pivot.”
