Thrive in Retirement
It's what many look forward to each day when they go to work; retirement!
Dr. Olson says, “They go to work on Friday, then Monday rolls around and they think what do I do now? So talk about it with a partner or spouse ahead of time, discuss what life will look like in 6 months after you're retired. Keeping active and having something to do is key.”
He suggests volunteering and joining a social group. He also says to plan exercise in your day.
Dr. Olson says, “Move at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week. It helps us function, helps energy level, helps us feel better, and keeps our weight where it should be. Then try to sleep 8 hours, less than 6 and you don’t function well."
