Are you really investing for your retirement/old-age?All of us think of money based investments. We think that as long as we are financially stable, our old-age, aka retirement, will be smooth.
What we fail to see is that our physical and emotional well-being is the key to our post-retirement happiness.
We must strive to stay healthy, by practising healthy lifestyles. We must invest in our health, by eating healthy while we are young so that our frail and ageing bodies are more capable of fighting disease. We must keep ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally active. Workout regularly and exercise the brain and build emotional bonds with family and friends. If we ignore these things when we are young, they come and haunt us when we are old. Sickness, slowness of our mental faculties and loneliness plague us.
So, while you are busy saving money for the future, make sure you invest in other, more important aspects of life.
