Retirement Wishes:

Lots of Retirement Happiness ideas!!

 We all have Retirement Wishes for Happiness.

First, consider this when Seeking Happiness in your Retirement:

FULL LIFE: IF you observe a really happy man,
You will find him building a boat, writing a symphony,
educating his son, growing double dahlias in his garden,
or looking for dinosaur eggs in the Gobi desert.
He will not be searching for happiness,
as if it were a button
that has rolled under the radiator.
He will not be striving for it as a goal in itself.
He will have become aware that he is happy
in the course of living life twenty-four crowded hours
of the day.
~ W. Beran Wolfe ~

You can retire happy, if you think about what you will retire to before you retire.

I hope this page will provide words of wisdom for your retirement years from many who have been there before you... to help you enjoy your own happy retirement years.

I get so many depressed retirees on this site (especially those in the retirement transition stage) so I asked some experts for tips on maintaining a happy lifestyle for retired folks.

We look forward to retirement, then what? Who Am I and What will I do for the rest of my life? This retirement exercise will help you figure this out... Happy Retirement choices!

Right now, with so many taking earlier retirements due to the economy, so many more are depressed... so, how do retirees remain happy, fulfilled, and active?

Warning -- the next expert uses the "e" word -- yes, exercise!

Dr. Tom Potisk has been a chiropractor and a holistic family doctor for 25 years. His "Down-to-Earth" doctor website has a couple of free reports you might like to check out, including one on The 5 Most Dangerous Exercises to Avoid. Dr. Tom advises: "Having practiced for 25 years as a busy holistic family doctor, I've observed how important it is for retirees to get regular exercise. They tend to become very inactive and this then contributes to and accelerates many degenerative health problems like arthritis, osteoporosis, heart disease, and senility. Retirees must set a goal to get at least 1/2 hour of physical activity daily and settle for no less than 3 times per week. Boredom is the biggest deterrent so I advise having several activities from which to choose. But some exercises are dangerous! In response to that, I created a free report called The 5 Most Dangerous Exercises to Avoid. Some of the exercises would surprise you."
