In my mind, retirement has me living in our retirement home, farther away from the city than where we are now. My typical retirement morning has me waking up naturally, with no alarm, one eye opening to glimpse the morning sun peeking though my curtains. I stretch and at an absolute leisurely pace, walk over to the CR and complete my ablutions. I then saunter down and prepare a healthy breakfast of eggs, bacon, bread, fruits and coffee....lotsa coffee. I open up my ipad and read thru my CNN, BBC and Rappler news apps, getting caught up on the latest news and ingesting mindless entertainment news (because I can, now).
After finishing my hour long breakfast, I then take some time to play with my daughter--with playtime being anything from taking a walk to the playground or painting by numbers.
After that, I'll either pack up and go to the gym, or set up my home TRX to do some quick circuit training. I'll then take my lunch and maybe a short nap afterwards. I'll then maybe head to the beach and dive. A wall dive in one of Cebu's many many dive spots comes to mind. Once up, I then have a Corona or two before heading home.
I then cap off the day with a couple's massage, either a full body massage or a great footsie at any of the cheap spas in Cebu with my wife.
THAT is what my retirement day will look like. Definitely worth saving up for, in my opinion.
What's your retirement day look like?
