Throw in the “more affordable” part above, and living comfortably weather-wise as well as inexpensively and you can imagine how that might make you extremely happy.
How would the place you live help make you healthier?
Here’s what we’ve found: First, thanks to the temperate climate of the places we’d recommend as the world’s best overseas retirement destinations, you’ll simply find that you walk more.
It’s actually NOT walking a lot that clogs up the works and wears humans out, and when you live in a place where the weather is always conducive to walking, there really aren’t any excuses.
So walking makes you healthier, and in the overseas destinations we’d recommend, you’ll be able to walk a lot.
Remember, because of the perfect year-round weather in most of the places that make for enjoyable overseas retirement destinations, the growing or fishing seasons are also year-round, so there is always something fresh on offer.
So you’ll walk a lot, and you’ll eat fresh, inexpensive food.
Your cost of living will likely be a fraction of what it might be if you retired somewhere in the northern latitudes... You’ll eat a healthier diet, you’ll have far less stress, and should you ever need mainstream medical attention, rest assured, in the places we’d recommend, you’ll have access to top-quality care—also at a fraction of the costs you’re likely paying now.
It’s taken us nearly 16 years to really zero in on what makes for a good retirement...and the one thing that stands out is this: Your health is your key to the good life.
