Much like retirement planning, maintaining mental and physical fitness requires early commitment and consistent effort. While physical activity keeps the body healthy and energized, nurturing mental resilience is crucial for navigating life’s challenges. Whether facing the demands of international cricket or preparing for retirement, starting early and staying disciplined are key to long-term success, stated Mithali Raj, the former captain of India’s national women’s cricket team.

Speaking at the Outlook Money Retirement Expo 40After 40, she explains that even in retirement, maintaining physical activity is essential not just for appearance but for overall well-being. Exercise boosts energy levels and mental clarity, aiding in day-to-day tasks, says Mithali Raj.

She explains that during her playing career, her father would manage her finances, but he also emphasized the importance of understanding investments and financial planning. With more time now on her hands, she’s actively learning about their investments and seeking ways to optimize returns.

She stresses educating young players about financial management, especially given the substantial earnings involved in today’s cricket. In the early days, when money was scarce, the contrast with current times is stark. For instance, an uncapped player was recently signed for two crores rupees, a considerable sum compared to earlier years. Mithali stresses the importance of guiding young players on prudent investment practices and ensuring they don’t get carried away by the allure of high-profile tournaments like the Women’s Premier League (WPL) or Indian Premier League (IPL).

Talking about how important it is to be mentally and physically fit in cricket, Mithali shared some helpful thoughts. She said being disciplined and ready is the key to doing well in the game.

Mithali says that she handles her finances after retiring and is careful to find a balance between taking risks and getting rewards. While she explores new chances, she sticks to her financial values. Every investment she makes fits with her big plans for the future.
