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.
