There are three things I believe that you need to do to maintain happiness in retirement. After visiting with a lot of clients being in or near retirement, there are three things that always keep coming up time and time again. The first thing is to keep busy. They say you need to have four different hobbies to maintain your happiness in retirement. If you’re planning on going to retire and you’re going to do nothing more than likely you will be unhappy in retirement. Make sure you keep busy.
Number two is to stay in touch. Now, that sounds pretty easy to do, but you’ll find that as you go along as you get older you might lose touch with some friends. Some friends might pass away, your family may not be around, they might live in different areas of the country, but it’s very important to stay in touch. That’s another reason why if you stay in touch you’ll be able to keep busier as well. That’s why you need to make sure you keep in touch with people like your family, your friends and other loved ones.
Last but not least is your retirement income. Everybody is worried about running out of money in retirement and I don’t blame you. To have a written retirement income plan down will help you become more confident in retirement and also make you more happy. If you have enough income sources to maintain your lifestyle in retirement, you will maintain your happiness in retirement.
If you cover all three of those things, make sure you keep busy, find at least four different hobbies before you can retire, number two stay in touch and number three make sure you have a written down retirement income plan that will maintain your lifestyle.
