retirement A destination that many perceive as a luxury reward after a lifetime of effort and dedication, but others experience it as a loss of purpose and ability. The inevitable battle that many face is theirs, whether you were in a hurry to arrive by choice or whether it was a catastrophic reality brought about by old age or serious injury. It’s about navigating a new identity and an endless amount of free time.
Impact of retirement
The end-of-care event is neither flashy, flashy, flashy, simple, mundane, or memorable.Regardless of how their career ended, studies show that within the first few years of retirement, people 40% more likely to get depression, And are 60% more likely to start substance abuse. “After winning the Super Bowl, I was weeping in bed.” Robert Gronkowski saidRetired at the age of 29 due to a series of severe injuries and mental health concerns. Astronaut at the age of 39 Buzz Aldrin He became the second man on the moon, then returned to Earth, became alcoholic, and endured three marriage failures. These are exceptional post-career examples, but the universal truth we can infer is that everyone needs a sense of purpose.
Not only young celebrities are watching the sunset over their careers. Most people will reach a certain point in their lives when they are physically unable to work. My mother has been a nurse for over 50 years. Her 50-year career in patient support ended when she was unable to continue the rigors of her nursing. Ten years after cutting her scrub, she settled on a lovely retirement full of Netflix marathons, reading clubs and her grandchildren. Her body may not be able to save her life as she was half a century ago, but her mind is undoubtedly sharper than ever and she has her own medical wisdom. I look forward to the opportunity to tell her world.
How the Metaverse can help
Please enter Metaverse: A collection of permanent virtual worlds born from the dream of the Internet to connect people globally and rethink ourselves without boundaries. This new frontier of endless experience can open the door to every imaginable course of life. A person like my mother can work virtually in a medical facility without any restrictions caused by physical restrictions. Elderly teachers, who may have significantly limited ability to stand and lecture due to restricted mobility, virtually connect with students and do the same coursework, just like in a traditional classroom environment. You can do it. Created by companies like Victory XR Completely immersive virtual classroom Where students can learn about or read about dinosaurs within the reach of life-sized Tyrannosaurus Rex To kill Mockingbird While standing side by side with Atticus Finch in Harper Lee’s actual courtroom digital recreation.
Steady progress is being made to make the Metaverse even more comprehensive. Not only for the elderly, but also for the disabled. Virtual reality companies have already devised AR-enhanced hearing aids and eyeglasses to address hearing and visual impairments, respectively. For people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders), Project VOISS Introduced (Virtual Reality Opportunities to Integrate Social Skills), Virtual Reality is used to recreate social communication and assist individuals with ASD therapy. In the Metaverse, those who are experiencing paraplegia, which is very difficult to travel to see new places, may visit many destinations that may have been hampered by previous financial and physical restrictions. I can do it.
With companies such as Disney, Apple and Microsoft Enter the MetaverseNot only is the entire city creating digital replicas, but our bodies no longer limit our exploration of the universe, and the only limitation we may soon face is our imagination. There is a new hope that there is.
