Retirement – Tips on making it the best time of your life

1. Retire to something. Leaving your retirement to chance is taking a big risk. Don’t expect everything to just fall into place. Be ready for one of the biggest changes in your life. You will rest easier and have more confidence in your future knowing you are prepared. There seems to be an attraction about having no schedule, no responsibilities and no obligation. This may work for a while, but then… bam! The honeymoon is over. No structure or focus to your day can lead to depression, loss of balance and meaning in your life.

2. Stretch and expand yourself in ways you’ve never done before. There is nothing attractive about being idle for a long time. You may want/need to work, pursue a business opportunity or do some volunteer work. Explore your community in ways you’ve never done before. Expand this to your state and even the world. There is likely to be activities to do or sights to see in your area that you never took the time to seek out. Is now the time? Reads books, go to plays, learn a musical instrument, learn a language, take a class, teach a class. Go beyond your limitations. Seek out activities that bring you pleasure. Try things you never had the wherewithal or the guts to try. Get those creative juices going! Don’t ever stop learning.

3. Develop or enhance healthy habits. It has been proven that regular exercise – both mental and physical – keeps you looking and feeling younger. You sleep better. You become sick less often. And that means fewer doctor’s appointments and fewer medical bills. It helps a great deal to make your exercise fun. Try activities by yourself or with a friend. What did you like to do years ago? Try it again. Simply keep moving: doing errands, going to social events, volunteering and visiting family and friends.

Retirement is that special time that you work so hard to achieve. Use this time to make your dreams come true. This could easily be the longest stage of your life! You may have 10 to 40+ years ahead of you. Live it with passion and abundance.
