When you finally left the workplace, did you do that with the intension of never working again OR was it just time to stop for a while or to create a new chapter? Why wouldn't you think about working again? In something that your passionate about, a lot of retirees do. Being your own boss, deciding about what, where and how much time you'll devote to your new venture can be awfully appealing. Your new business can be anything you’re good at or want to try. Open a shop or provide a great service, why not give it some thought? The older you are, the greater your chances of success. Those over 50 ..read more

Your body needs energy (in the form of calories) for all the complex chemical reactions that allow you to move, breathe, think and function normally. However, daily calorie needs vary from person to person and are affected by things like your weight, sex, genes and activity level. It’s well known that you need to burn more calories than you consume to lose weight. Furthermore, people who are more physically active burn more calories. However, modern living and work environments may mean that you spend large parts of your day sitting, especially if you have an office job. Unfortunately, a sede ..read more

Some cost-savings stuff...

When the euphoria of being retired finally lifted, I took the time to reassess some of the recurring costs our household costs. Things like TELEPHONE/COMMS, PAY TV, PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE – may be you have others you could also consider. I decided that we were too entrenched with our telco to reposition but, as with banks, insurance companies and the like, telcos offer new programs all the time largely to entice new customers but do not necessarily promote them to existing customers who are content to pay a premium. In our case, I was able to bundle our services with an infinitely more robu ..read more

We had agreed that once we relocated and settled, golf would become a more regular part of our leisure time and after almost 6 months, we finally booked a round at one of the several courses in our newfound home. Another tick on the over 50's bucket list. So I spent the previous day cleaning our clubs, bags and buggies - I had to locate our golf shoes in one of the 40 or so as yet unpacked moving crates still in our garage. Found them ok! We were certainly a bit rusty on our games but the weather was great, the course was beautiful and we were both in really good humour. The best thing was th ..read more

We've talked previously about a number of hobbies, pastimes and projects that you might embrace in retirement now that you have the time, and we've also talked about Estate Planning but here is one project I'm now suggesting which you might at first find totally obtuse, distasteful and completely off limits - planning your own funeral BEFORE you need it. Gruesome! I here some of you saying, how gross! - but I don't think it is, nor should it be! Not at all, quite the contrary, as this will be your unique opportunity to make YOUR funeral a memorable and joyous event ABOUT YOU, not a solemn and ..read more
