The Los Angeles Times reported recently on a new study that almost certainly caused a lot of readers to chuckle and say, “Duh.”
It seems investigators have discovered that among the health benefits people experience following retirement is a marked reduction in mental and physical stress, according to the study published last week in the British Medical Journal.
Hello? How could it be otherwise? Name a job from which one might retire that doesn’t induce some measure of physical or mental stress, if not a bit of both.
Indeed, simply having the wherewithal to sustain retirement these days is a stress reducer. Almost everyone knows somebody (or is somebody) who has put retirement plans on hold because those 401Ks they were nurturing tanked when the market went south.
We have been up to our eyeballs over the past few years in “expert” pronouncements about bursting “bubbles”— from the “Housing Bubble” to the “Wall Street Bubble.” Nor is it amiss to add the “Retirement Bubble” to the list.
