Quote Of The Week: Retire & Get Happy

get happy 2

Want to get happy? Try retiring.

“Retirement, contrary to popular opinion, is not the time in which your satisfaction with life declines and your health deteriorates.

Instead, it’s the exact opposite.

Retirement improves both happiness and health. Life satisfaction improves immediately upon retirement, and people are happier after they retire.”

Robert Powell, August 1, 2015, for MarketWatch, based on just-released research by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Financial Tip: Retirement seems to be the gift that just keeps giving. Researchers found that many improvements in health continue to show up 4 or more years after retiring.
