Slow down to enjoy your retirement

The importance of planning and preparing for your retirement is a well worn theme. Everyone wants to be financially secure so money will not be an issue – we hope to be able to do all of those things we dreamed about as we slaved away day in and day out at our chosen profession. We all accept this part of retirement planning – we get it.

The flip side of the retirement coin is planning for what we will do with the many hours and days and months that are now ours to fill. If we do not plan ahead for our non-financial retired life we may find ourself missing out, unsure of what to do to stay engaged, alive, and happy.

After a career of rushing around to meet deadlines ever aware of the fast-ticking clock, we will need a way to slow down to a more realistic “retirement pace”. It is important that we are prepared before crossing the retirement finish line.

Take a look at my latest blog on US News & World 4 tips to slow down in Retirement for a few hints on how to slow it down so you can enjoy being retired.

You only retire once so plan and prepare to make the best of every day!

One thought on “Slow down to enjoy your retirement

  1. I think that working on a small project like a small farm is a great way to spend your retirement without being bored. Most people save money to get a farm because they enjoy living in peace away from the city.
