AbstractWhen people retire, they have often failed to consider the important psychological sides. Some people lose identify and others fail to find meaning and purpose in life. Relationships after retirement may be strained. This article discusses ways to think about the emotional side of retirement prior to the event.
DescriptionThere is much written about retirement-readiness but most of it is focused on financial or legal issues. To sail smoothly into this next phase of life, it is also important to consider the emotional side of retirement. This requires a hard look at yourself, your sources of identity and self-esteem, your need for structure and your desire to give back. In addition, don’t forget to consider how retirement will change your relationships, both inside and outside of the home. It’s easier to do this self-reflection before retirement is upon you, though it’s never too late.
