68-year-old who 'unretired' went on a 30-day silent retreat—I learned about how live a happy life.

At the end of 2015, I felt stuck. After a near-death experience, I had to quit my job and retire early to prioritize my health.

My health improved, but the rest of my life did not. I felt bored and purposeless in retirement, and my relationships suffered. I started to wonder, "Is this all there is?"

1. Trying to control outcomes will make you miserable.

Before the retreat, I was a control freak. The idea of "letting go" in any part of my life was out of the question.
