Are you approaching retirement or already there?
Undoubtedly your health and the ability to live a long life is at the top of your list of things to consider and think about.
If you are still engaged in your career you may be neglecting your self-care. Long hours spent working and trying to get ready for the financial aspects of retirement may be taking a toll on your health. It is important to not neglect this area even if you have little time.
The good news is that once you reach retirement, you will have more time to devote to your health and wellbeing. Life will be less stressful when you no longer have to follow a work schedule.
Some things that will help you feel better both physically and mentally are:
Better Sleep: No more getting up early to go to work, no more thinking about stressful work situations. Your sleep will improve not only in quality, but in quantity. Research has shown that we need at least 7-8 hours of sleep every single night in order to be our best.
Time for Exercise: No matter how you arrive at retirement, it is important to get enough exercise. If you aren't getting any right now, it is time to start. This is critical. Do what is best for your body. If you are starting from scratch it is a good idea to check with your physician. Once you are moving more you'll already feel more vibrant and energized.
Better Nutrition: Retirement brings the time to focus on your nutrition needs. Learn to prepare meals that are best for your body. Eat plenty of organic, fresh vegetables and fruits.
Consistently focusing on these three things will have you feeling that longevity is within your reach. If you aren't doing all three yet, start now and start reaping the benefits.
I'd love to hear more about how I can live my best life, joyfully and fully engaged.
