One advantage of retirement

In an ordinary and desirable situation, upon retirement, the pace of life for the individual involved slows down immediately and markedly. At least that was my experience. And that was a HUGE immediate benefit. Healthwise, for sure. I wish I had had my blood pressure checked before and after retirement, but I am sure it has come down. I am now able to slow down and enjoy life, doing things like appreciating the quietness of a morning, or enjoying an extra cup of coffee with my wife. Or just sitting and thinking. Good things. And, I can actually plan out my day in a rational and sane manner, just the opposite of how it was before.
