If you’re within 5-10 years of the so-called “retirement age”, you might want to reconsider as you close in on it.

It’s already been shown that people who never actually “retire” experience fewer major diseases and exhibit higher cognitive function than those who give it up for the recliner. As long as the rest of you holds together, staying engaged in something, no matter how old you are, helps keep those synapses in your brain firing away.

Whether you remain in the work force because you must or just prefer it, you might want to select a new job closely related to your primary career. Pursuing something new requires adaptation, which might be stressful. So check things out, compare, test and base your decision on what you know you can easily handle.

While we’re talking about keeping your brain plugged in to where the action is, there’s also your connection to the other person in your life to think about. If you’re married or have a significant other, loving and enjoying being around them can gain strength for both if each person has something in their life in which they have an interest. Factoring this into the relationship can make it more rewarding as you age.

It can not only help reinforce cognitive function for both of you, your overall general health should benefit. With all this in place, the love you have for each other will always be in full bloom.
