Raising the Bar on Wellness

Nurturing Mental and Physical Health in Conjunction with Financial Wellness

As warm summer days slowly give way to crisp fall evenings, we subconsciously take inventory on our personal growth as the year nears it’s close and we begin another chapter of our lives.

The changing of seasons can be a time to reflect on our accomplishments and deficiencies, to recount memories shared with family and friends, and to develop a plan of action for the coming year.  It is a time to contemplate the next steps in life’s continuous cycle of events, some within our control, and others that are explicitly predefined.   One of the most certain of life’s predefined events is aging, but today we have distinctly more control over not only how we live, but how long.

Forty years ago the combined average life expectancy in the U.S. for men and women was just shy of 70 years; technical, educational, and medical advancements have pushed that number recently close to 78 years, according to the CDC.   Extending our life expectancy by almost 10 years within a forty-year span is remarkable, but it is the decisions we make today that will impact the quality of how we live our additional years in the future.

Achieving balance in one’s life requires deft planning, commitment, education and resources.  We are fortunate to live in a society that has the capacity and tangible resources to enrich our lives beyond imagination in 1960, but tools that are left unused are merely illusions if not put to proper use.

CPC Financial Planning, a full-service financial firm with offices in Lewes and Bethany Beach, has embraced and responded to the needs of individuals and families seeking a more robust balance in their lives.   CPC Financial will be sponsoring a Health and Wealth Workshop on October 21st, 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Bear Trap Dunes in Ocean View, and again on October 22nd, 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Fish On in Lewes.

Michael Loftus, Sr. Financial Advisor with CPC Financial is looking forward to sponsoring a workshop that he believes is a paramount necessity.  “The needs of individuals is perpetually evolving, and it is our belief that overall wellness involves taking a holistic approach; good health and financial strength should work in tandem and not autonomously”, says Michael.  “To have one without the other does not promote what we [CPC Financial] feel is an adequate balance for total wellness.”

CPC Financial will hold a discussion and answer questions as they relate to financial matters, and they have assembled a group of valued partners in the area to help provide education and hands-on resources to promote a balance between living a healthier, longer life.  Atlantic General Hospital will be offering free blood pressure and diabetes screenings, along with a nutritionist that will offer valuable insight for achieving overall health and wellness.  Joining Atlantic General at the workshop will be the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, Bethany Massage & Wellness, L’Ochio Eyecare, and World Gym – each will be available to discuss preventative and on-going awareness as it relates to their specific fields of expertise.
