Preppers consider many possible adverse events, like disasters, medical emergencies and even societal collapse, when they stockpile supplies and hone their survival skills. It is easy to focus on these things and forget a looming event that happens to everyone: retirement. (h/t to Survivopedia.com)
Aging is a fact of life, but its effects are different for each person. Some seniors need constant medical help, while some people well into their 60s can still hold jobs and walk up to two to five miles every day. Everyone hopes to be part of the latter group, but it takes a lot of work. Whether you’re only in your 30s or nearing retirement age, there are things that you can do to prepare for retirement.
Money will always be an issue. Not everyone has millions’ worth of savings in their bank account and prepping – whether for a disaster or retirement – requires money. Retirement is a particularly tricky age because it becomes more difficult to secure money. Here are some things you can do today to settle this issue:

The best thing to invest in is arguably your health. Many seniors spend a lot of money on medical bills and medications, creating a huge dent in their savings. Get a check-up today and take some tests to find out which factors of your overall health you can improve. If there are any risk factors – like genetic predisposition or higher levels of certain compounds – make the choice to adjust your lifestyle to a healthier one. It will be difficult as you may be forced to stop eating some types of food and do things you’d rather not do (like exercise). Take comfort in the fact that your future self will thank you for it.
Retirement can be a period of rest and peace – if you start preparing for it today. Learn more about the prepping lifestyle and kill two birds with one stone at Preparedness.news.
