    Regular exercise, health conscious, positive mindset, continuously engaging with the community, maintaining close relationship with past colleagues, old friends and family / relatives; and most imporant of all be happy and content; tese are all good stuff

      massages are also good for the body; particularly those on body pressure points performed by chinese doctors

        You can actually enhance your health with just a few minutes of daily massage on certain points of your hands.

      Agree, exercising regularly is important! But before you start, I suggest getting a check-up to understand your body’s needs. It’ll be more motivating to see how exercise improves your health.

      I highly recommend practicing Yoga, especially with an experienced instructor. They can guide you in understanding the benefits of each pose for your organs. The best part is, you can practice Yoga from the comfort of your own home and improve your overall health. you can practice Yoga from the comfort of your own home and improve your overall health and it will be life-long exercise.

    you can get a pet such as a dog or cat as a companion if your children are already grown up and are not staying with you; pets do keep good company if you do not mind looking after them

      I agree that having a pet can provide wonderful companionship, but it’s important to recognize the level of responsibility they require. Pets, much like children, need a great deal of care and affection. They rely on us completely and cannot thrive without our support. Before considering a pet, it’s crucial to assess whether we can meet these responsibilities.

    I would recommend pursuing a hobby with a healing effect; such as raising small fish in a fish bowl, growing potted plants, learning Chinese calligraphy and painting, etc

      I like Chinese caligraphy or Chinese painting; more cultural and help pacify the mind and calm the character

    involving in charity or community work is also good, as you would derive positive energy from helping other people who express gratitude for receiving your good deeds

    I see retirement is an opportunity for you to try something that you could not while working. So embrace it.

    Much better still if you can find some people who share your objectives and like to work together in the project

    Great point. We can always start a new chapter in our life after retirement. And its content is only limited by our own imagination.
