TRIQUARIANS

EMPOWERED LIVING IN THE THIRD QUARTER

Are you navigating the rich and empowered stage of life between 50 and 75, embracing this third quarter of your journey towards a century with open arms? Do you see this time not as a decline but as your peak era of abundance, where your years of wisdom and zest for life merge seamlessly?

Triquarianism

Central to the ethos of Triquarianism is the profound belief in longevity, with Triquarians aspiring to reach the milestone of 100 years.

This optimistic outlook on life expectancy shapes their approach to daily living, planning, and goal-setting. It instils a sense of urgency mixed with patience, urgency to make the most of every moment and patience to invest in long-term health, learning, and relationships.

The belief in a centennial life encourages Triquarians to focus on sustainability in their habits, be it through nutrition, exercise, or mental health practices, ensuring they not only live longer but also enjoy a higher quality of life. This perspective influences how they view their legacy, prompting them to think about the impact they want to leave on the world and how they can use their extended years to contribute to their communities, mentor younger generations, and pursue endeavours that were once put on hold.

In embracing the possibility of a 100-year life, Triquarians adopt a holistic view of ageing, seeing it as a journey of continuous evolution, adaptation, and enrichment.

Qualities of a Triquarian

Triquarianism embodies the philosophy and lifestyle adopted by individuals in the third quarter of their life, ages 50 to 75, who are committed to living their lives to the fullest, with a forward-looking and empowered approach.

It’s a movement that rejects traditional notions of ageing as a decline, instead celebrating this period as one of peak abundance, growth, and contribution. Triquarianism is characterised by several key principles:

1. Embracing Change: Triquarians view the digital age and technological advancements as opportunities for growth and innovation, eagerly incorporating new tools and platforms into their personal and professional lives.

2. Leveraging Wisdom: With decades of experience, Triquarians understand the value of their knowledge and skills, using them to guide their decisions, innovate in their fields, and mentor the next generations.

3. Pursuing Health and Wellbeing: Recognising the importance of physical and mental health for a fulfilling life, Triquarians prioritise active living, healthy eating, and mental wellness practices.

4. Contributing Actively: Beyond personal growth, Triquarianism emphasises the importance of making significant contributions to society, whether through volunteering, entrepreneurship, or advocacy, challenging stereotypes about ageing and demonstrating the continued relevance and capability of older adults.

5. Lifelong Learning: A hallmark of Triquarianism is the belief in never-ending learning. Triquarians are constantly exploring new subjects, skills, and hobbies, keeping their minds sharp and their lives interesting.

6. Courage to Explore: Triquarians are not afraid to step out of their comfort zones, be it through travel, new ventures, or adopting and adapting to new technologies and platforms.

7. Living with Purpose and Passion: Triquarianism is about more than just staying active; it’s about living every day with intention, seeking joy, fulfilment, and meaning in various pursuits.

In essence, Triquarianism celebrates life’s third quarter, encouraging individuals to approach these years with optimism, energy, and the conviction that the best is yet to come. It’s a call to reject passivity and embrace the potential for new beginnings, rich experiences, and meaningful contributions at any age.
