An Australian study shows retirement is good for you. A study of seniors showed they increased physical activity after retirement and reduced bad health habits. Researchers at the University of Sydney found on average, sedentary time decreased by 67 minutes a day. Seniors became more active and tended to examine things like diet and negative habits like smoking. Those who improved their lifestyle most tended to have retired from full time work. This study confirms my personal observations. I can honestly say I’ve never met a retired person who was unhappy with retirement, in fact most are busier than ever – and loving it.
