Retirement causes chronic disease and mental problems?
Well take a look at this guy. What a great inspiration this guy is. He is hitting on girls at 93 years of age on the beach! Oh yeah, he is also a 93 year old bodybuilder who is smart and ambitious 🙂 Charles Eugster says “After retirement age, depression doubles every five years. I personally think that has a lot to do with retirement. It’s an enormous strain if you’re not making a contribution to society.”
Eugster, who was born in London in 1919 and has dual British-Swiss citizenship, was a dentist for much of his adult life after earning degrees from four different universities. A twice-married father of two, he then produced a dental newsletter from when he was 75 until he was 82. Single since the death of his second wife in a car accident 14 years ago, one of his goals for when he turns 97 in July is to write a book.
Charles also says, “If you refer to the queen of England, who just turned 90, she has a terrific schedule. She is not somebody who jogs in the park of Buckingham Palace, but she does an enormous amount of standing. She is not someone who sits, and sitting is not healthy. The most important thing is that she has a job.”
Big props to this guy, god bless you, you are an inspiration to all!
