  • Title: 50Plus.org For Boomers - Health & Wellness - Retirement Planning
    Descriptive info: .. Home.. Contact Us.. Privacy Policy.. 50plus.. org.. 50Plus.. org For Boomers - Health Wellness - Retirement Planning.. Fitness at Home.. Tips.. Retirement Planning.. For people 50 years and older, staying fit and healthy becomes more important than ever.. As the body ages, it loses its ability to bounce back from unhealthy lifestyles the way it could in younger days.. Indeed, unhealthy habits for those 50 plus can quickly lead to serious health conditions.. Additionally, bad living habits at this age can dramatically lower one’s quality of life even when serious problems do not develop.. Here are some tips that can help the 50 plus crowd in choosing healthy lifestyles.. Set goals.. One way to keep on a healthy tack is to aim high by setting goals in your fitness program.. For someone who is overweight, they might think about how they would like to look at their ideal weight.. For those who enjoy running, they can set a goal of finishing a 5k run or even a half-marathon.. By concentrating on accomplishing fitness goals, many people find it is easier to motivate themselves to work on a healthy body every day.. Build a home gym.. The most convenient type of workout facility is a home gym that provides for easy exercise without having to travel anywhere.. The costs of building your own home gym can vary depending on the type of exercise equipment that you choose.. Simple weights and bike machines are relatively inexpensive.. Treadmills and fancy weight or resistance machines require larger investments.. Join a health club.. One way to work out and socialize at the same time is to join a health or fitness club.. Some people have problems exercising all alone in a home gym.. A membership at a private or public gym allows you to keep fit in the company of others who share the same goal.. Consider a fitness trainer.. Many people do well when they have a professional fitness trainer who works with them on their own specific body requirements.. A trainer can quickly assess what a customer needs to get in shape, so there is less trial and error that occurs compared to going it on one’s own.. Make sure the trainer has the necessary qualifications for the job.. Go at your own pace.. While it is good to set goals, it is generally a good idea to choose a workout program that fits your needs.. Pushing oneself too hard can lead to injury and avoidance of the exercise schedule.. Try to make the workout routine fun and invigorating.. For example, people who like to dance could choose a dance-based exercise program.. Vet your restaurants.. For  ...   meals often leads to overeating when mealtime comes around.. Do not forget about rest.. In addition to exercise and diet, rest is an important factor in maintaining fitness.. One way that people get burned out quickly is when they fail to rest the body properly giving it time and energy to heal in between workouts.. Not resting properly while exercising can also lead to injury.. For example, when weight training; make sure to let the body rest properly between sets to avoid injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscle and cartilage.. Choose outdoor activities for fitness.. If you prefer to combine fitness with your other regular pursuits, choose those activites that naturally provide exercise like swimming, skiing, hiking and bicycling.. In this way, you can have fun while keeping the body in shape.. Travelers might want to consider packages that include camping, trekking and similar physical activities rather those in which you spend more time with sedentary pursuits.. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle becomes more important than ever after 50.. As your body ages, things like your immune system, metabolism, brain and hormones don't work quite as well as they used to.. Because of this, many people over 50 are more vulnerable to illness, debilitating injury, cognitive decline, obesity and other problems.. By staying fit and healthy, you can decrease your chances of illness and injury, boost hormone levels, improve metabolism and hold back the aging process.. Studies have even shown that older..

  • Title: Retirement Planning - Preparing for an Early Retirement
    Descriptive info: For many, the idea of retiring early means leaving the workforce before the age of 60 and enjoying their days with more “young” years under their belts.. In order to do this, financial planning is essential to ensure the money will be there when its needed.. Preparing for an early retirement means making whatever changes are necessary now to add to the amount of money available in the future.. With little to no income coming in, retirees must expect to cover their living expenses, any extra they plan on spending and also any potential health costs that may arise as they get older.. Planning.. Each of these objectives can be accomplished by increasing earnings, saving more and/ or reducing the amount of money spent on a regular basis.. As every person’s circumstance is different, one family may reduce expenses by moving into a less expensive home or relocating to an area where the cost of living is less while another may take on another earnings source or job.. So, setting money aside for retirement can be done in as many different ways as there are circumstances.. Economic Changes.. Changes in the national economy can greatly affect the steps a person needs to take to prepare for early retirement.. During periods of economic downturn, returns from stock market investments and savings accounts can be substantially lower than those during healthy economic periods.. The 2008 recession has had drastic effects on the stock market and its ability to generate good returns on investments.. Likewise, the drop in interest rates has also decreased the amount of growth that can be expected from a simple savings account.. As Social Security benefits don’t kick in until the mid- to late-sixties, the sooner a person begins preparing for early retirement the better.. Under these conditions, decreasing expenses and finding additional income sources may be necessary; even when substantial investments have been made.. Debt Spending.. Regardless of how much a person  ...   are a good way to put away money towards early retirement and may also offer a range of options for investment depending on the type of plan in place.. Those looking to prepare for early retirement may want to consider investing as much as 10 percent of their yearly salary in an employer plan.. Also important is the degree of involvement a particular plan allows participants to have.. Early retiree planners should take an active role in managing their contributions in cases where an employer plans allows employees to select from different investment option.. Staying on top of changes in the economic market as well as industry changes can help in determining where investment monies are best spent.. Savings.. If at all possible, saving for early retirement outside of –and in addition to- an employer-sponsored plan provides an added layer of financial protection.. Since retiring early means fewer income earning years, available monies have to last longer than when a person retires in the mid 60’s.. Ultimately, the longer a person lives the longer the money has to last.. With increased age comes the potential for increased healthcare costs, which can have a considerable impact on a person’s financial condition.. The cost of health insurance coupled with the cost of prescription medication must be factored in as new expenses.. Setting up the added saving accounts can help prepare for unexpected health costs.. During hard economic times, saving at least as much as before the economy turned becomes especially important for those who hope to retire early.. After all, there’s an increased likelihood that the cost of living will be even higher once the economy recovers so the additional savings will come in handy all the same.. With all these factors to consider, it’s important to have a written plan in place once a person decides on a retirement savings strategy.. It’s also helpful to allow for flexibility in the plan as unexpected events do happen..
