Everyone, and I mean everyone, is looking for ways to increase the amount of money they will have available in retirement. The usual ideas include deferred tax strategies, higher-risk investments for potentially higher annual returns and working longer.
But there is another way to double how much cash you could have in retirement. The technique is available to everyone. It’s free and you’ll feel a lot better about yourself if you do it.
It isn’t a stock, bond, option, future or mutual fund. And there is no commission involved.
I know, this sounds like an ad for an abs machine, but slow down a minute.
Just keeping yourself in better physical condition really can double how much cash you will have in retirement.
Research indicates you will spend half your retirement nest egg on medical costs. And the most affective and direct way – and the only documented way – to reduce that cost is regular exercise.
Gretchen Reynolds, the editor of The New York Times’ “Phys. Ed” column, says you don’t even have to be in tri-athlete condition to benefit from exercise.
Just 30 minutes a day of brisk walking can do the trick. In fact, recent studies indicate you don’t even have to do a continuous 30 minutes. Two 15-minute jaunts work just as well.
