How do you spend your retirement days?
by Wendy, Retirement Enthusiast
When the Wall Street Journal writes about Retired Lives, I read, mostly out of curiosity. 8+ hours sleeping 7 hours on leisure - 4.5 hours on TV, computer/electronic device 3 hours on chores 1 hour eating 1 hour personal activities
The PEW Research Center says that retirees (age 60+) sleep over 8 hours a day. They break down retired days like this:
The leisure time is spent on electronic devices, visiting family, etc... activities that don't cost a lot. That's the main point of this article. Many retirees daily activities (computering, reading, exercise, walking, and "puttering" as WSJ used this term) are low-cost activities.
They also say men over age 60 spend 2 hours a day on paid work. Two Hours? I've never heard of two-hour jobs, so I assume that means ten hours a week, so likely 2 five-hour days? Women, after 60, work one hour and 12 minutes on paid work. QUESTION:
SO what do YOU think? Does your daily lifestyle break down as the experts think it does --OR-- are you one of the unusual ones? Tell me more!
