Episode 41: Are you prepared for the emotional transition into retirement?
Jul 21, 2023
With so much focus on preparing financially for retirement, less time is spent considering the significant emotional considerations of retirement itself, especially the delicate transition from career-lifestyle into retirement-lifestyle.
Here are just a handful of the things that we'll discuss:
- Studies are mixed about the effects of retirement on your mental health.
- Having a plan in place may make the transition smoother.
- Addressing factors such as loss of work routine, loss of a robust social network, and loss of one’s professional identity may help mitigate emotional stress points. Not to mention all the additional time to be spent.
