I’m 50 and would like to retire early at 55 so that I will be in good health to volunteer, take classes, travel, socialize with friends, and play tennis. Kids will be out of college and will have no debt. What annual after-tax income stream would you consider enough to safely retire early? I know it’s all based on personal lifestyle choices, but wanted to see if there’s a consensus.
Been putting on a lot of weight eating the wrong things. Suggestions for things to cook? Travel every other week and trying to be better about eating in.

Sharing my experience here
One of my girl friends, and I went to Fairbanks, Alaska recently for a week. It was great!! If anyone wants to see the Northern lights, winter is the best time to go. We stayed at a well known hotel, ate out for every meal (4 nights, 5 days) + went on tours and dog sledding... if I take out our flight expense it was about ~1200 for each of us (including some light shopping too)
Checkout the comments section for what we did,
I’ve noticed a lot of negativity in other bowls towards travel and travelers, calling it not a real hobby or just rich flexing. How do you guys handle it? Is it worth it to try to explain what I enjoy about travel and what it means to me?

Does anybody have ideas on how to use 2 weeks of vacation during covid? Can’t visit family without international travel, most friends are with their family/SOs and social distancing. Pto is expiring so it’s use it or lose it. Im in NYC. Thank you!
I had a dream last night where I was walking thru LGA's new terminal to catch my flight with my slightly overstuffed suitcase and picked up a skim latte. Then I woke up alone in my NYC studio. 😢
The hotel gave a key to my room to another guest checking in. Thankfully I had put the bolt on, but I woke up to someone opening the door and trying to push in, it was very frightening. Points?
MBB fish, might be a dumb question but did any of you take your final round zoom from a hotel room ? Moving around a bit so this might be the case for me , but feel like so much could go wrong (wifi, not having a comfortable set up, etc ) TIA! Hope y’all are enjoying the weekend :)

Hi ladies! I currently work for a food manufacturing startup and everything they promised would happened has not in the year and a half here. I am very concerned that in a couple years we wont be a company based on current business practices.

Any advice for helping that out until I have another job offer?
I'm 22 and planning to take a life insurance. I'm comparing all policies and max life seems attractive as it has good claim settlement ratio and less premiums. But there is no office near our area. My worry is that if there is a need to claim in future, it can be done all online by my nominee? Is it recommended to take policy online in any platform(like policybazaar)?
Other options I'm considering are SBI life, HDFC life which offices are available in my locality.

Has anyone ever gotten let go early during their notice period so the company could avoid paying you a bonus?
