Always put off to tomorrow what you don't need to get done today.

doing nothing is one of my favorite pastimes.
but, along with a little exercise, doing nothing
becomes much more enjoyable.

I do Nothing. And there are never enough hours in the day, to do it. There's always some left over, for tomorrow.

Since retirement, my daily 1 hour eastward commute to work has become a 10 minute westward commute to the beach. That's the meaning of life.

This is how I explain retirement to people who ask,"what do you do all day?" I respond, "well for the first 18 years of my life I did want my parents and teachers wanted me to do, from 18 to 55 I did want my employers wanted me to do, from 55 on, I do what want to do." It is simple.

/m58160 Kind of like that big pharma commercial I heard years ago. Advertising an arthritis drug. “A body at rest, tends to stay at rest”. “A body in motion tends to stay in motion”. As many former letter carriers know, once you retire, you can’t go from walking a six+ hour route, to doing nothing. Exercising must be done after retirement. On top of that, you need to have a purpose in life. Staying connected with activities, maybe a part time job, and especially relationships with people. The hours you spent working, must be filled with something, otherwise you face quick decay.

i believe it is perfectly normal to be
down once in a while when in retirement.
what i like to do is go out for a 30
to 45 minute walk. mix in a little jogging.
i do this about 5 times a week, and I never
feel down or out of it. there's an old saying
"motion equals emotion". i believe it.

There's no other way to Be, now that the work is done - for us. I feel sorry for those who can't understand that their work is done. They're OCDs.

retirement is freedom. freedom to do whatever
the hell you want, as long as you don't hurt
anyone of course. i've been retired a little
over 3 years and man, i am one happy camper.

I retired at 55 with 36 1/2 years including military time. So far I have been blessed with good health and in June I will be retired 10 years. To each their own. I was eligible to retire May 19th but learned that it was best to retire on the first. So I stuck it out for 2 more weeks. I only miss my friends on a daily basis. We get together pretty often for lunch and stories.
