The Course Of Life

Retirement has always been considered a transition phase in life because it involves many changes including both mental health as well as your environment along with your social interactions. And it definitely reshapes your life for sure. While many studies have looked into how health can affect retirement behavior, very few have thought to analyse the effect of retirement on health itself. Results have shown that complete retirement can lead to 5-16% increase in trouble associated with daily activities and mobility, along with a 5-6% increase in disease conditions as well as a 6-9% reduction in mental health, across a post retirement time of 6 years on average..

Social security data indicates despite increase in life expectancy, the overall age of people the time of retirement has been reducing over the past forty years. These data have been analysed by many medical and scientific journals and corroborate with results of studies done earlier. Which show improvements in health because people tend to have good time in their life once retired such as taking a Phillip Island tour from Melbourne, while some of them have proved it has little impact on the health of an individual. Previous studies have also indicated that retired people report more loneliness and unhappiness than do people who are working. But the question remains whether retirement makes people lonely and unhappy, or if people who were lone and unhappy to begin with are more apt to retire.

We have been attempting to make sense of whether the demonstration of resigning, or retirement itself, is useful for wellbeing because you get to enjoy yourself like taking a puffing billy yarra valley tour, bad for it, or neutral. According to numerous research we have been able to find that continuation of work after retirement has better effect on health. Healthy diet, illness, physical health, mental health were the key factors which affected the post retired period. According to the statistical test, healthy diet only had significant difference where the non-working individuals were better than the working individuals. Life satisfaction of our study sample showed that the working category had a greater % of individuals who were very happy but again we did not find a significant difference with the statistical test.

The main aim of many research projects is to determine the impact of retirement between two groups, people who continue to work after retirement and people who don’t. Because our normal observation is that retirement is a period when we can unwind and care more for ourselves after unpleasant professions. But currently the opposite trend is unfolding. If this change in trend is proven to be successful in keeping retired individuals healthy in all aspects then they should be made aware of this fact.
