Hello and welcome to this week’s blog, about your Physical Pension.
A similar topic that I have discussed lots recently, but one that is so very important. You pay into a financial pension, but what happens when you get to retirement and you are physically incapable of enjoying that money?
That’s where a Physical Pension comes in handy – what you put in now, and regularly put in, up until you retire, will reap you rewards in the ability to continue living life the way you want.
You do not need to be a body builder, or an elite athlete, or slim, or a fast runner, or look a certain way, because being fit is for everybody and it looks different for everyone.
If you want to be able to continue walking and hiking, maybe hitting trails and mountains during your pre-retirement and retirement. Then you need to be working on those skills NOW.
If you want to be able to lay in the sunshine without hips aching or your back hurting. You need to be taking care of yourself regularly NOW.
If you want to go shopping and trying out new fashions, visit the hairdressers regularly and have afternoon tea and theatre trips. You need to be strong and energetic NOW.
It might seem like too much effort to start exercising now, years and years before you need to draw on your Physical Pension, but it takes years of regular effort to maintain the level of fitness you would like to enjoy later on.
But what if you’re only a few years from retirement and you are realising that you haven’t paid regularly into your Physical Pension? What do you do then? Tune in next week to find out… because there is something you can do!
Thank you for taking time to read my thoughts this week, and I look forward to being able to look after you in my treatment room soon or see you out in the fresh air for a Personal Training session or two soon!
