Study: retirement increases the quality of life

The free time and freedom from work responsibilities positively impact on the wellbeing of older people. This is said by researchers at Oxford University. They analysed data about pensioners from Germany. Someone came out of retirement to 60 years, others worked to 65 years, writes The Daily Mail.

Immediately after retirement, many noted a surge of strength, assessed their health status as fair or good. Quality of life in retirement has also increased. Increased the duration of sleep for 40 minutes, there was time for Hobbies and sports.

German pensioners were more healthy lifestyle than people who are not leaving their jobs to older years. Free time they spend in different ways: somebody likes it's gardening, others have found themselves in a family worries and communicating with grandchildren. Seniors have smoked for 6% less and 11% more often engaged in sports.
