Good health needs to be a top priority for all of us. Our goal should be to Make learning about wellness and health a priority and commit to studying these retirement-resources.

Some life circumstances with which we have to deal are the result of personal choices and some are the result of environmental factors beyond our control. But many of these circumstances can be managed by recognizing them and developing a plan to cope with them. But developing a viable plan requires knowledge based on retirement-resources available to us.

Chronic diseases are not a normal part of aging. With the possible exception of environmental toxins risk factors for chronic diseases are lifestyle choices. The responsibility is ours to choose a lifestyle that meets our individual health needs.

A happy retirement, at least in my view, is first dependent on our relationship with God. Following in order of importance is the condition of our health and then our finances. We make our own choices in life and to a great degree we are where we are and what we are as a result of choices that we made along the way. What we choose now will make a big difference in the quality of the rest of our lives.
