It almost seems counterintuitive -- but studies have shown that if you have the choice between working more or saving more, you may be surprised that the answer is to continue to get up in the morning and get to work! 

Robert Powell, editor of Retirement Daily, gave us all the stats on that in the video above -- so be sure to watch.

You can understand how it makes sense, though.  If you keep working you are still contributing to your retirement and don't have to tap into your retirement funds.  Even better, you can put off taking Social Security. 

Now granted, not everyone can keep working in retirement so it is clearly still very important to save. But if you're healthy and motivated, find a job you love and go for it.
