The ‘new retirement’ is not an ending, it’s a new beginning, the start of a new life journey of vastly expanded proportion.’ Retirement Planning will make the transition from work to the next phase of your life more purposeful and satisfying. Dr. Richard Johnson
One way for you to live is from meal to meal with sleep in the middle. When asked, ‘how was your day, the response may be ‘I made a salad’, or ‘I paid a bill.’ Although you may be happy, you are left to wonder if there is more to life? The other way you could live in retirement is to see your retirement as an opportunity. You could spend your time doing voluntary work, enjoy sports, travelling regularly, going out, or looking after your grandchildren. This approach will enable you to flourish in retirement.
The sooner you start building a retirement plan, the better off you will be when that phase of your life comes
—but you don’t have to compromise on your current standard while doing so.
THE REALITY OF RETIREMENT
Without a question, retirement is a daunting phase of anyone’s life. The paychecks won’t come as often as they used to. Family priorities shift. You need to focus more on your health and mental wellbeing. And above all, you might have a bucket list of things you need to do for personal happiness and contentment.
Retirement is the biggest life change you will ever go through.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PREPARATION
Being prepared for retirement is crucial for anyone to have peace of mind.
However, retirement preparation goes beyond savings.
There are a lot of variables to consider while planning retirement—having a recurring source of income, security. insurances, health planning, asset planning, time-management, and mental wellbeing happen to be aspects most people overlook while making a retirement plan.
