“The greatest wealth is health.” Virgil

Keep your body fit, your mind challenged and your heart engaged. Your physical limitations will largely affect the extent to which you are able to enjoy your retirement.

The good news is that your quality of life is completely in your control. Studies show that only 20 percent of how we age can be attributed to genes, the remaining 70 percent is determined by our lifestyle choices. You have the power to regulate factors such as diet, exercise, pollutants, health habits and smoking. And generally speaking, retirement allows you more opportunity to spend time on your health. Why not devote a good portion of it to being healthy.

If you think life is too much fun to leave at an early age, the onus is on you to ensure that you do not. The key is to take charge of your health and stay engaged in life so that you use, rather than lose your physical capabilities.
