FOUR GREAT REASONS TO STAY ACTIVE IN RETIREMENT
Are you a recent retiree? While it’s completely natural to want to slow down a bit and get some well-deserved rest, keep in mind that it’s also important that you remain physically active. Here are four excellent reasons to keep exercising after you retire: 1. To prevent certain illnesses. Regularly taking part in physical activity is, unsurprisingly, excellent for your health. It helps stave off illnesses such as osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure, to name just a few. 2.To stay happy. Exercise causes your body to release hormones (namely, endorphins and serotonin) that directly influence your mood. Studies also show a positive correlation between physical activity and reduced symptoms of depression. 3. To improve your social life. Retirement can leave your social life feeling a bit empty. Trying different group activities (swimming lessons, yoga classes, walking clubs) is a great way to meet new people and make new friends. 4. To achieve the best possible quality of life. Regular physical activity will help you sleep better, improve your balance and posture, reduce joint pain and stiffness, and contribute to maintaining your mobility and independence.

TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT READING GLASSES
Reading glasses, widely available at optometry clinics as well as in most drugstores, are great for correcting presbyopia (commonly known as far-sightedness). If you need a new pair of glasses to help you see up close, here are a few things to consider. First things first: you’ll need to determine the lens strength required to correct your far-sightedness. Because vision problems can vary due to an assortment of factors, don’t simply buy the first pair you get your hands on. Visit an eye doctor to find out exactly how strong your lenses need to be in order to improve your vision. Prescriptions typically vary between +0.50 and +3.50.
Next, start shopping for a pair of reading glasses to suit your style and needs. Whatever your tastes and budget, you’re sure to find an extensive selection of options to choose from.
Style concerns aside, consider how you’ll be using your new glasses. If you plan on wearing them for extended periods, choose a pair with a lightweight frame. If, on the other hand, you’ll only be using them every once in a while for a couple of minutes, go with a pair that folds in the middle for easy storage, or that you can simply wear around your neck.
On that note, happy shopping!
