When you were working, particularly if you worked in a city, you walked a hell of a lot. In fact, you probably walked a lot more than you ever imagined. Now that you’ll be retired and not walking as much, remember that you need to compensate for this. Retirement Yenta recommends that you buy a treadmill, StairMaster, or NordicTrack, and place it right in front of your big flat screen TV. If you have a patio you might want to look into putting the equipment and TV outside.
