Guess I did not address the OP's question about advice. Stay involved. I cannot generate more money for retirement but I can be wiser about spending the money. I do not volunteer as much now but I do more for myself (attending lectures, painting, etc.) There is still a lot of life to live.

Now I check to make sure I'm wearing pants.

Thank you for that burst of laughter that came out of me. Like your humor.

For me, the lessons I've learned and would like to share are:

Live lightly
Travel lightly
Be kind, especially to children, seniors and animals
Laugh every day
Cherish your body and fuel it well
Go to nature, breathe deeply
Stretch
Avoid toxic people and situations
Give something back

My advice is figure it out for yourself because ultimately, that's what everyone must do.

Besides anything I say might come back to haunt me.

Start living healthy now! Get exercise, eat right, get rest, take your vacations! Don't wait for retirement to do these things.

If you need to have surgery, have old jewelry restyled or repaired, to buy a decent bed or sofa, do these things now while you have a salary coming in.

Save something every pay period.

Stay focused on your job. Make the most of every opportunity.

Take pictures of your family doing fun things. Someday you'll look at those photos of happy people and say, I was rich and never knew it.
