    #34 So much fun @Cyndi wilkins! I love not being on a schedule... I don't like to plan much when I'm on vacation, I'd rather wing it and be surprised. Strolling, photo taking, eat and drinks- wonderful :)) Pam did get up a lot earlier than me so she hit the beach early in the mornings. We had fun doing dinners and one night we both cooked a meal at the condo. @Pamela 🐝 Williams brought a hibachi grill and made burgers while I cooked corn on cob, baked beans and macs/cheese. No worries, my part was simple since it was from a can or a box... just had to shuck the corn LOL. I think she felt relieved to be able to work since some things came up that were not expected, still felt bad for her!! She wouldn't want me to though ;-)

    Well Cindy, I looked at it this way; this is a sort of new job and in actuality I didn't qualify for paid vacation but my bosses still approved and didn't like it that I ended up working so much. Unlike the long trek Lisa has I can hop in the car any given morning and be on the beach by lunch.. plus I had my time. Sunrise on the Ocean is the best time of day. I didn't get on the computer until after 9 so that gave me 3 to 4 hours of pure ocean bliss every morning. I was a happy camper! I was happy as could be for Lisa to explore and click away. The ocean and a good book was all I needed#34

    They say that the sweetest success, Ian, comes after boundaries have been moved further away than we originally thought possible, or, even better, when the batsman repeatedly hits a six over them. Personally, I'm one of those boring people who identify hazards, and carry out a risk assessment after evaluating the probability of occurrence and the associated consequential damage. I then suggest appropriate factors of safety be set in place, so that the great majority of users or practitioners can work within a safe environment. But without people like you, Ian, we never really find out what is possible beyond the boundaries or how conservative we may or may not have been in setting them. "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." 🤔

    Thank you all for your thoughtful responses. In a workshop, I do on social connectedness we define social isolation is: less social contact than someone wishes, causing loneliness or other emotional distress. In Canada, the research shows that 6% of seniors do not have any friends, which leads to social isolation, and loneliness. There are many of us who, although alone are never lonely, as Franci and Ken said. I find myself, at times in Ian's situation looking for time alone so I can rest and recharge my battery. We all have a need to belong no matter what age we are at, and as we age, seniors lose members of their social circle and withdraw from their community. In BC only 67% of seniors feel a connection to their community. I am not sure about other areas but I think the percentages would not be that different. I believe that unless we take steps to try and change this situation, more and more seniors will experience isolation and loneliness which leads to health and care problems.

    In my 20s, 30s, and early 40s, I ran 5 miles a day -loved it and still fantasize about getting back to it. In my 50s I sat and stressed far to much. In my 60s I walk. Two things have helped -a young dog with whom I walk quickly for an hour 3 -4 days a week and 1 1/2- 2 hours a day 3-4 days a wee and lately a Fitbit -that ritual has helped me keep weight off -that and subvocally chanting "Eat less, move more, stay out of the Haagen Dazs"

    And as much as my somewhat older bones do gripe a bit at the thought of walking four miles every day, @Royce Shook, I get up and go. Having walking buddies helps -- both the canine and the human kind. We walk three or four times around our village, which is very hilly and about 1.25 miles if we walk on all the roads (which we do 99% of the time).

    The old expression "use it or lose it" is always close to my thinking . . . And I want to live to be very, very, very old!

    Got rid of mops etc and my house is my gym now - on my knees and wash the floor - paint the whole house and when complete start at the top again - a bit of gardening and then to top it off a brisk walk down the country lane - use stairs whenever time permits..and so on....you can build a lot of stretching/squatting/generally moving into all activities at home and the office. Walking around a city is a killer - tarmac is hard on the body and feet but London is a regular must!

    Retirement or work, which do you chose?
    Retirement or work, which do you chose?I thought I was one of the few who retired many times before taking full retirement. However I am, it appears soon to be in the majority. Some 40 percent of people 65 and older who are currently employed were retired at some point according to...

    #10; Helena I love your last line; No more office politics, enjoy your retirement and your new chairs as well as expanding your mind. As Franci and Harley said we need to stay engaged and relevant. It sounds like you will be doing this while having fun

    I look forward to the pension cheques purely because that will allow me to do all the other work or stuff I have not had time for - my pearls and can't wait to unpack my stones I have collected the last 30+ years and yea, messing around with those old chairs I bought, the rolls of upholstery cloth in addition to attending more courses at West Sussex Uni - roll on June 2018 - no more office politics!

    #5 I agree @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador. We need to stay engaged and relevant. This may or may not entail a paying job.

    #3 That's the spirit, @Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess!

    The "here today, gone tomorrow" model of retirement observed in the U.S. baffles me. Why don't employers encourage folks to ease into this transition by working four days a week for an agreed upon period, then three days a week, then two, and so on? It seems to me that this arrangement would be beneficial for succession planning and knowledge transfer, and limit the shock of sudden separation to the worker.

    I agree that we should "work" but the definition of work for those of us who retired, I think has changed. We do what we can/want to be a contributing member of our society, as well as to be involved in activities that allow us our sense of creativity, challenge our intellect, keep us socially active and renew our spirit, and if we earn some money while doing this so much the better. Thank you all for your thoughtful comments.

    We don't necessarily need a 9 to 5 job but we should be involved in creative, social, intellectual, spiritual and sports activities. Communicating and networking shouldn't be neglected once we retire. These things may change with our new lifestyle but should still be part of lives. I believe the most difficult part of retiring is staying relevant.

    @Royce Shook, I am not planning to ever retire!

    I am in my early 70s, but so what? What else would I do? I love my work, I love meeting new people, I love helping others by copyediting their articles and such -- and I love earning a little extra $$$ and working from home.

    I need to be useful and relevant. My idea of a horror story is just sitting around, wasting away, accomplishing nothing. I'll work at this job until I can't for health reasons or something, but even that isn't any kind of an issue right now.

    Be curious to see what others think about this!

    @Royce Shook, I retired in May. I was anxious prior to retirement, thinking I would not enjoy it. I have been surprised at how easily I have adapted. I don't miss my work which I had enjoyed.

    Glad you liked it Brook. As we hit the autumn there is something particularly enjoyable about coming home from a long, hilly run all sweaty and dirty and plastered in mud and heather. See you out here sometime.

    I love running outside no matter. Running through the woods, fields, hills, where-ever off road is absolutely the best. Someday I hope to explore the Irish countryside in a pair of running shoes. Great article.

    a good point it also helps to re connect the good self with the simple joy of running, event training can turn into self obsession very quickly :-)
