Important to stay active while on retirement

We all look forward to retirement, as that is the time when you can relax and reap the rewards of the years of hard work you did. There's no more waking up early, no assignments and definitely no stress. Retirement can be a real enjoyable time in your life, but it is also important that you keep yourself active. You don't want to become a total couch potato, as that can cause health complications. When you were younger and working, your life was different as it was fast paced and non-stop. Your body would have gotten use to the daily grind and you were actually better off because of it. But now that you have time to relax, you may develop lazy tendencies and may not be moving at all. This is where it is easy to get health problems as you are no longer active and because your'e older your body cannot function as efficiently as it use to. This can lead to many gaining unwanted weight, which can lead to health complications. The best way to counteract this is to get sufficient exercise and get enough rest. Combining being active with enough rest will help you in staying vibrant and healthy, something everyone on retirement would want to maintain. The best part is you don't have to exert yourself to stay healthy, simply doing gardening or walking will be sufficient.
