Do you fear retirement?

Many people worry about being bored, losing meaning in life that their job provides, having fewer friends, or dying sooner. Good news. Research does not support these fears.

On the contrary, retirement usually boosts positive lifestyle changes. You are likely to be more active, sleep better, and reduce your sitting time when you retire.

Data revealed that retirees increased their physical activity by 93 minutes a week, decreased sedentary time by 67 minutes per day, increased sleep by 11 minutes per day and smokers often quit.

Sound good? Start planning to get what you want in your golden years. You may later wonder.
