Retirement Wisdom Blog Posts
We created this retirement blog because the concept of retirement has changed so much. Retirement used to be an easily understood, uniform and defined phase of life. Today, it means very different things to different people. There are numerous retirement options and retirement strategies to achieve them. Many people aspire to achieve financial independence and retire early (FIRE). Some people want to reinvent themselves a with a new portfolio of activities. Others are interested in finding greater purpose in a second career or encore career. Some people want to find ways to work longer. And yes, others still are ready to transition to retirement the old-fashioned way.
If you want to retire smarter today, you’ll need to explore your options and design the path that’s right for you. As with any path, there are obstacles to navigate along the way. Our retirement planning blog highlights the key problems on the non-financial side you can expect to encounter. We explain what we think should be on your radar in planning for retirement and offer our recommendations on proactive solutions to consider.
There’s More to Retirement Than Money
Our retirement lifestyle blog is designed to help you become wiser in planning for retirement. Often people neglect the non-financial aspects - until they actually retire. Retirement Wisdom believes that after you achieve the ability to retire financially, these aspects can determine the level of satisfaction you experience in retirement. While there are many things you cannot control about life in retirement, we believe that you can control your mindset and how you choose to invest your time.
How to Structure Your Day in Retirement
Our writing offers a perspective on how to replace the benefits that work offers beyond a paycheck. Preparing for retirement includes being ready for the emotional side of it and learning to adjust to retirement. We offer ideas on how to structure your day in retirement, how to deal with the loss of identity when leaving work and how to cultivate a new sense of meaning and purpose. Our blog on retirement includes our observations on how retirement affects the key relationships in your life and how vital social connectivity and community are in a satisfying retirement. We share our observations and experiences with topics like considering where to live in retirement, how to maintain fitness and wellness in your retirement years and why you’ll want to become a lifelong learner.
Successful Aging in Retirement
Research shows that even if you’re retiring early, you’re getting older every day. Most blogs about retirement concentrate on saving and investing. We include content on positive aging that helps you prepare well for all the stages of retirement and how to age well.
