    In all honesty, never fully retire imo. Just do a job you enjoy. Ive read so many studies that show not retiring extends life span. Dont quote me as I dont remember the links but it makes sense to keep busy. The more lazy we get, bed ridden watching TV etc, the faster our body degrades.

    Being Maori imo is largely due to suppression of low income housing and lifestyle contributions. If you dont smoke and dont drink every day and eat a Paleo diet. i reckon you have as much chance of 85 plus as the rest of us. :-)

    I wish you all the luck. I wanted to retire now but my Mums aging and care got in the way. So Im off to make my retirement by 57. Then I will part time spearfish and part time work, maybe on marine electronics.

    Interesting thread. I agree with the mid life crisis thing and I don't like the term 'retirement' so I don't plan on retiring but I work for myself so I suppose I have retired from the rat race, which I was part of in UK, Aus and here for 20 years.


    I think you'll need to find projects that challenge you but as many have said you probably need to rest and restore before you can move forward This may not be your thing but there's this walk that has inspired many, it's the Camino de Santiago a modern day pilgrimage walk of hundreds of kilometres. A six week jaunt is said to go like this - the first 2 weeks are physical, the next 2 are mental, and the last 2 are spiritual.


    I plan on doing one of the routes, to clear the air. Right now I can't imagine 6 weeks without using a mobile - thankfully I don't think it for social influencers - and you can walk for hours without seeing anyone.


    cheers,


    Donna
