This Washington Post included an article that posed the question of continuing to work, and the various reasons why this can be good for us, or retiring and enjoy our remaining time. As the author questions the reader- “Retire early and live longer? Or to stay healthy, work until you drop? If you search the Internet for advice on how retirement may affect your health, you will probably come across both these statements.”
As the article points out, the answer is not a simple one. What is important is to think through your decision and do what is right for your circumstances and do what will bring you joy.
