When it comes to retirement, it’s easy to dream about the perks: sleeping in, traveling, reading a good book, playing golf – name your fantasy. Even if your retirement is fully funded, the reality can be far less fulfilling if you don’t plan ahead.
Repeated studies have shown that people who do not have a rewarding retirement can suffer both physically and psychologically during retirement. Lack of mental stimulation is a primary reason. People are often forced into retirement before they are ready. Others think they are ready, and yet are not prepared for the day-to-day realities of a new lifestyle.
