If it's eating and drinking, I think your statement is accurate. If it's working in a high stress job - or even a low stress mind-numbing one - then your statement could be 180 degrees from reality.

Everyone is different and you cannot paint an accurate picture of retirement citing an example of one individual. What floats your boat might make me seasick - and vice versa.

Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension
