Have you recently reached a career milestone, or gotten a promotion? Or, have you already retired?
After you accomplish something meaningful, there’s nothing better than allowing yourself a reward, or even an extended period of downtime.
Some people retire and spend almost every second doing things they love. And why not? It is, after all, your time.
Unfortunately, doing too much of some of your favorite retirement activities, things like patronizing the newest restaurants, traveling, drinking a vintage bottle of wine, or spending weeks relaxing by the shore, these things aren’t going to keep you healthy.
And, if done to excess, they could actually shorten your life.
Now and then, we can all benefit from being reminded to do the things that are really good for us. These include:
- Cutting down on alcohol
- Starting to exercise
- Going to see your doctor
- Evaluating your diet

Here are some of the ways that the four tips above improve your odds of living a longer, healthier retirement.
