Retirement planning

With this post, we are not dealing with the financial preparation to retire, but with the mental changes to ensure a smooth transition to the new phase of our lifes.

The time to start thinking about retirement is BEFORE we actually do it. There are two key elements: being realistic and involving our partners in the planning.

Of course there will be problems such as loss of identity, anxiety and boredom. The best shield against these hurdles is a combination of long-term and short-term planning. Prepare a bucket list of things to do, be more social, schedule trips with friends, create a gourmet group, join your favorite political party, spend time practicing sports... Each one of us knows what is best for us, but remember don’t wait until we face the problems, visualize it first, when everything is still cool and calm.
