Re: Financial Health vs: Physical Health

Just finished a week skiing in Colorado - my legs held up better than any previous trip . . . due to much much more hiking and walking after retirement. Unfortunately, I can't handle mogels as well as I used to ( I think it is a combination of fear and not recovering from falls as quickly )

Re: Financial Health vs: Physical Health

We decided to try living without a car and we now have the time and the reason to do way more walking than we did in Canada ... so yes, the health improvement has been substantial I think!

Re: Financial Health vs: Physical Health

One of the reasons I have to retire is that my weight and overall health have gotten totally out of control. I used to run distances up to marathon and now have trouble walking to the mail box down a short driveway. I plan to reinstall proper eating habits and up the exercise, although bad knees will probably limit the running. I actually look forward to it. I miss feeling fit.

Re: Financial Health vs: Physical Health

Read somewhere about post-retirement life being like 3 big circles: geo-financial, health, and your own idea of inner happiness. The idea is to spend as much time where they intersect; when the drift out of synch, spend your time and effort nudging them back into line if you can. When you lose control of one and can no longer put it back in place (health in particular), move the others to it so they overlap again.

Or something like that. Kind of cheesey, but also some wisdom therein.

Something along the lines of "Happiness isn't having what you want, it's wanting what you have," maybe?

Re: Financial Health vs: Physical Health

If my vacations are any indication, I predict that I will be in much, much better shape. I have no problem eating all kinds of food because I have time each afternoon to take a nap and then go to the gym to work out for 1 hour. I also do a lot more sight seeing on foot during vacations, so that helps.
