Last summer felt hotter and winter seems much colder.
There was a time not long ago when life was quite a blast.
Now, I fully understand about “Living in the Past.”
We used to go to weddings, football games and lunches.
Now we go to funeral homes, and after-funeral brunches.
We used to have hangovers, from parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches and wile the night away.
We used to go out dining and couldn’t get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags, come home and take a pill.
We used to often travel to places near and far.
Now we get sore asses from riding in the car.
We used to go to nightclubs and drink a little booze.
Now we stay home at night and watch the evening news.
That, my friend is how life is and now my tale is told.
So, enjoy each day and live it up…before you’re too damned old!
Maintaining your health in retirement is truly your “job one.” To participate fully in your precious active years, you must be mobile and healthy.
Doctors’ appointments, flu shots and checkups are also an important part of your retirement program. After all, once you retire you will have the time; and thanks to Medicare, after age 65, medical care is damned near free.
Things can and will happen to you as you age. Catching issues early is often the key to staying healthy or quickly getting back to good health.
In addition to physical health, retirement requires that you also take care of your mental health. Your mind, like your body, seems to work better the more that it is used. Now that you have time, you can and should read the books that you always wanted to read.
The Internet is a wonderful way to communicate with friends, satisfy your curiosity or simply pass the time. You just search by topic using Google or whatever other Web browser you prefer.
The Ultimate Retirement Guide by Dave D’Antoni believes it is easier to learn from the mistakes of others so you can be better at actually doing it.
