Hi, I’m Cyn Meyer

Certified Retirement Life Coach

Your guide to an amazing life after retirement...

As a modern life coach for older adults, I founded Second Wind Movement in 2018, to help you turn your retirement years into your best years full of purpose and passion.  

 

I’m not retired  which is a good thing. I’ve dedicated my life’s work and made it my personal mission to help you address the often invisible challenges in retirement (that go well beyond the typical financial planning). 

 

Retirement is not simply a time for only leisure. It’s the beginning of your next big growth journey, empowered by the incredible capacity of your brain.

 

My unique background and training involves real-life application based on neuroscience. But let’s be real here — I’m not just a coach with a bunch of fancy degrees and certificates. 

 

I’m someone who genuinely cares and helps real people get real-life results, and I choose to work with this audience that’s important to me.

My mission, your journey

My mission is simple — to help you live a vibrant, purposeful retirement life. Because you deserve nothing less. I began coaching older adults one-on-one in 2018 remotely from Orange County, CA using the power of neuroplasticity and specific life coaching tools.

 

There are a few key experiences that drove me to deep-dive into neuroscience:

 

  • I grew up playing music in retirement homes and saw early on what happens with a sedentary lifestyle post-retirement and at the end of life. 
  • Both my grandparents passed, touched by Alzheimer’s, which happens to 1 out of 3 at the end of life. 
  • I’ve experienced a lot of loss and death in my life and I don’t believe the majority of those who passed had a chance to live out fulfilling lives.
  • Despite surviving a brain surgery, radiation, and a near-death experience in 2011, my dad fell back into old habits of worrying about future unknowns and fearing a boring purposeless retirement. 
  • While serving in the Financial Services industry, I witnessed first-hand the brevity of the “retirement honeymoon period” despite financial success. 

 

The Rewire Retirement Method is my answer to the fear of purposeless aging. It’s a scientific system designed to help you embrace retirement as an exciting new growth journey, not a stereotypical time to wind down and settle into stagnancy.

Personal life

When I’m not researching, publishing content, working, or coaching clients, you can find me playing music, hiking, and enjoying the Southern California beaches with my husband and two kids. I also love simply spending time with loved ones and immersing myself in the community.

If you look back and see all the things I’ve done, it’s really amazing.

I was a person who would dream of all these things, but the action was keeping me from doing it. I wasn’t sure at first, but once I got into the program, I was really pleased with the whole experience. I’m more self-confident, calm, consistent, and a more positive person. I’ve even improved my relationship with my husband. I loved it.
