HealthWATCH: Staying in Shape Post-Retirement

Once we retire, we tend to bask in our newfound free time, but few of us realize that we should be spending part of that time exercising. Some fitness buffs may treat retirement as a chance to double up on their favorite activities, but for the rest of us, the challenge becomes extracting the most benefit in the least amount of time.

“Consistency is the key,” said Michele Stanten, a certified fitness instructor in Coopersburg, Penn. “Some people who are gung-ho at first try to do an hour of exercise, find it’s too much, and stop. It’s more effective going out for 10 minutes one day, then 10 minutes the next day. Build up gradually and be consistent.”
Stanten consults with SilverSneakers, a free fitness program for seniors that comes with qualifying Medicare plans. It includes access to participating gyms at more than 14,000 locations across the U.S., along with instructor-led yoga, dance and other fitness classes.

Regardless of your goal—to gain muscle mass, lose body fat, lower your cholesterol, improve your heart health—turning exercise into a daily habit helps you stay on track. Just check with your doctor first and heed your body’s signals once you get under way.

 “The most important thing is to do something you enjoy,” said Edward Schneider, professor of gerontology at the USC Davis School of Gerontology in Los Angeles, Calif. “Otherwise, you’ll quit.”

Beyond regular workouts, adopt a healthier lifestyle throughout your day. Stroll down every aisle in the supermarket even if you don’t need to. When you go to the mall, park once and walk from store to store, rather than driving from one to the other. By weaving healthy habits into your everyday life, you’ll reap the benefits as you enjoy your retirement.

Strategies to Help Maximize Income and Minimize Taxes

Were all going through a situation with no precedent right now, and it can feel challenging to take any action. But, we believe that there are some important tax strategies that can help you navigate during these challenging times that may not only help you weather the current storm but set you up for success down the road. One strategy we recommend for our clients is tax-loss harvesting, which involves selling an investment that has lost value, replacing it with similar investment, and then using the investment sold at a loss to offset any realized gains. This can help investors minimize any taxes they may owe on capital gains or their regular income. It can also improve overall investment returns. This strategy, however, can only be applied to taxable investment accounts, including retirement accounts like IRAs and401(k). Another strategy can be a Roth conversion. Converting retirement savings from pre-tax to Roth accounts has become less expensive for many investors because of the

The COVID-19 virus has made a brief global recession likely. While the duration of the virus pandemic is unpredictable, policy stimulus, pent-up demand and a lack of major imbalances argue for a solid upswing when the virus threat clears. The containment measures being taken across the globe to combat the virus will have a large economic impact. Global gross domestic product (GDP) growth will probably be negative in the first quarter and will enter the second quarter at risk of contracting further. Provided the virus is transitoryperhaps contained in the second quarterthe global economy should be poised to rebound in the second half of 2020. The combination of monetary and fiscal stimulus on top of last years global central-bank easing, in addition to the reduction in China-U.S. trade tensions, argues for a solid recovery when the virus threat recedes. In the U.S., the governments virus containment measures mean a technical recessionnegative GDP growth in Q1 and Q2seems likely.

This is extremely common in the world of health, and we often receive conflicting information about the best way to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

But consuming these drinks can have consequences, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Its best to drink something that is low in sugar. 2. Dont fear coffee While too much of anything is never a good thing, coffee is actually high in antioxidants and can help reduce the risk of Parkinsons and Alzheimers diseases. 3.
