Retirement is the time for new adventures for many

Retirement is the time for people to live out their spontaneous or long-planned ideas. As such, a recent study commissioned by The Royal Voluntary Service found that people look forward to their 70s.

Now, two in five of the 2,000 people asked what they had planned for their retirement believe that old age does not begin until 85, with most wanting to use their time to go travelling, get fit and learn new skills.

Professor John Newton, chief knowledge officer at Public Health England, said last month: “Even during mid-life, it is not too late to improve your health.

“People in England are living longer than ever and that makes achieving a good quality of life in later years even more important.”

Some 38 per cent said they planned to travel to new countries, 28 per cent wanted to get fit and 18 per cent expected to start volunteering with a charity. A further 9 per cent planned to learn a new skill or find a hobby.

A third said they intended to embrace their 70s, and 18 per cent said they felt proud of their age. Very few of the participants would describe themselves as ‘old’, but are still taking comfort in home investments such as affordable stairlifts. Evidence has suggested that exercising well in middle age can have a dramatic impact on quality of life 20 or 30 years down the line.

The Royal Voluntary Service yesterday published a roll-call of famous people who turned 70 last year or will turn 70 by the end of 2016, including names such as Helen Mirren, Cher, Bill Clinton and Edwina Currie.

Actress Alison Steadman, who will celebrate her 70th birthday in August, told the Daily Mail: “When I was 17 I remember thinking 35 was very old!

“How we change, grow and learn. Life is for living and to be 70 now seems exciting to me. I’ve grown in confidence over the years and learned that every day is precious.”
