You’ve retired and you want to make the most of your golden years. Don’t be a victim of illness or injuries. You can still have a productive, fulfilling life as you age. The key is to keep your spunk and keep moving. Take advantage of five, great ways to boost your energy and stay active after retirement.
Get enough rest!
So many of us fail to get adequate rest. While it’s true that sleep patterns change with age, it’s vital to sleep at least six hours a night on a regular basis. Set up a regular routine at night to promote sleep. Do something relaxing. Try reading, listening to mellow music or watching an enjoyable movie. Take a warm bath. Your body temperature will drop afterward and naturally prepare for rest. Don’t eat anything at least two hours before bedtime. Otherwise, digestive issues could disrupt your sleep.
