6 ways to kick the quality of your retirement life up a notch

Do you remember what you had for dinner last night? How about the last time you took a little extra effort to dress up before you walk out the door? When did you last close your eyes and concentrate on the scent of a rose?

Little things indeed but what is life without noticing those nuances and hints that add to our quality of life?

In retirement we are finally able to slow down from the frenetic pace we have grown accustomed to and take time to literally smell the roses. Hurrying hither and yon is stressful and there is no place for stress in retirement! No more need to rush through a meal but instead concentrate on the flavors and combinations, the spices and nuances of what you put into your mouth.

We want and deserve to live the good life in retirement and being conscious of the moments that make up our life is a good place to start.

 Take a look at this weeks US News & World blog 6 Ways to Improve the quality of your retirement. You can make it happen!

  1. Hi, Dave… I enjoyed reading your article and I certainly agree with your six tips for improving the quality of retired life. I’d suggest adding a seventh — drive slowly. My wife and I live eight scenic miles from town. Driving between home and town is a pleasure which we continue to enjoy. I find the drive especially delightful when I savor it by taking my time. In fact, if there’s another car behind me, I’ll generally pull over to let it pass. Bill
