This is an interesting study, looking at the correlation between enjoyment of life and risk of death.

The researchers found that people who reported high life enjoyment were 24% less likely to die during the period of the study than those who reported no enjoyment.

There is no doubt that lifestyles in later life are changing as a result of our improved longevity.

An important part of planning for retirement is how you will spend that time; having the income and capital in place to support your lifestyle in later life is important, but so is knowing how you will spend that time, ensuring fulfilment and enjoyment.
