Have a happy and healthy retirement

Filed under: ,

All of us in midst of our career are eagerly anticipating the carefree days of our retirement. But to avoid disappointment, it's important to take certain steps to make sure that you're retirement goes smoothly. Here are some tips courtesy of Health Day:
  • Make a list of what you want to accomplish
  • Try new things. Hey, now that you have the time, why not? Take up a hobby you've always wanted to try but never had time to.
  • Set aside 30 minutes a day for physical activity to make sure you have many more years to enjoy your retirement
  • Get involved in your community. Keep yourself busy with volunteer work
  • Work on friendships that have come second to work and family in the past. Establish new ones
  • Get a pet. But only if you don't want to travel
I think these are great suggestions -- if you have time. Most retired people I know claim to be busier than ever before ... do you agree? Make sure to put your health first though. You'll miss it once it's gone.
