There's no dummy run, no take 2. It's a cliche, but true. From where we stand today anything is possible - the future can be whatever we want.
But taking action isn't always easy. Life puts roadblocks in our way. We're busy being busy. And sometimes the things we know we should do just aren't as exciting, so we put them off and plan to do them tomorrow, or next week, or 'sometime'.
There are lots of good excuses for not taking action - we get that. The challenge is to seize the day and make things happen. Turn do into done.
You're the best person to take control of your life, but it's often easier with a partner to help along the way. Someone to steer you in the right direction, cheer you on and help keep you on track. That's where we at Sovereign come in. We help you take control of your life should the worst happen.
We've started a movement to help Kiwis proactively take charge of their lives both by living healthily and by getting insurance over their financial security, helping them to remain in control should something happen.
The Sovereign Tri Series sponsorship is one way we support Kiwi health and wellbeing, organising events around the country to help thousands of people take charge of their health.
Our healthy living ambassador Nicola Smith is an expert in personal training, nutrition and living well. She offers fitness programmes, blog posts, recipes and 'ask-the-trainer' podcasts through her 'online gym' Forever Fit.
Every summer the Sovereign Action Unit, a restored vintage ambulance, travels up and down the country distributing healthy living tools to Kiwis at various summer hot spots.
How well are you living? Our Sovereign Wellbeing Index is a snapshot of Kiwi health and happiness, giving insights to help New Zealanders improve their health and wellbeing.
We also help support and educate younger people through partnerships with a number of charities.
We can help get you sorted for the unexpected - the parts of life you can't always control.
