What would the Babyboomer rules for living a good life be if you were asked to advise the younger generation stepping out today on life's adventure?
By the time we reach 60 years we have experienced most things in life. The highs the lows, the good times and the bad times.
We've had experience of relationships that have been good or those that have turned sour.
We can probably look back at opportunities missed, wong decisions made or we can look back and count our blessings and acknowledge we've had a good life.
We always say hindsight is a wonderful thing. If only we'd known this or that we would have chosen a different path.
Is your life full of regret?
Do you look back with satisfaction and think if I had to do it all again I wouldn't do it any different?
A recent survey carried out by Retirement Move collated the responses given by more than 1,000 men and women aged over 60 when asked what their golden rules for living were.
Richard Drew, a spokesman for Retirement Move said: 'The golden rules are an upbeat reminder of how important it is to keep perspective and appreciate things we might be taking for granted.'
But first participants in the survey were asked about their biggest regrets, with many admitting they wished they'd saved more for retirement.
Surprisingly the most common regret was they thought they'd married the wrong person!
This list of the twenty most common regrets may help us decide.
So what were the results of the survey?
With all the experiences of life this is the list of babyboomer rules for living a good life that we would recommend to the younger generation.
So do you agree with the babyboomer rules for living a good life?
My three favourite from the list of 50 Golden Rules of living would be:
20. Always have a smile on your face
32. Seize the day
37. Live everyday like it’s your last.

So what will you be taking from the babyboomer rules for living list into your retirement?
It's quite natural when you get to a certain age to begin to ponder on life and see where we could have done things differently.
It's time now to look forward to the next stage of our life.
At this stage in our life we should know what makes us happy and pursue any dreams that are yet unfulfilled. Age is only a number not a barrier to living a fulfilled life.
The baby boomers are re-shaping retirement and making it what they want it to be.
Preparing for retirement is important if you want to make sure you enjoy every minute of it.
Retirement is about new beginnings not the end.
