Retirement can often be referred to as the “Golden Years”, often with good reason, though it is entirely dependent on you to make the best out of those years. Attitude is absolutely key to ensuring that you have a good retirement. The happiest individuals are those that practice mindfulness and do not ruminate on the past. Retirement might actually provide you with many more opportunities that you might not have not even dreamed of and give you a fresh perspective on life.
Full Control of your Time
Before retirement, it is most likely that you’ll be bombarded with responsibilities, be it from work, school or family. However, once you enter retirement, you will suddenly be hit with a lot of free time as well as increased control over your daily routine and future plans. Retirement is the perfect time in your life to pick up a hobby you’ve always wanted to indulge in, be it golf, volunteering at non-profits, or gardening, the world is your oyster and you will essentially be free to participate in whatever that you want!
Fulfil your Dreams and a Greater Purpose
Though it might be great to have all this free time to yourself, the absence of a career can often result in a perceived lack of purpose in an individual which could lead to illnesses like depression and anxiety. Though, a less cynical way of looking at this issue could be that it would finally free up time for you to pursue what truly gives your soul purpose instead of just simply completing it for a simple paycheck. Carpe diem is the word, and it’s time to do what your heart has always desired.
Now that we’re living in this booming age of technology, there has never been a better time to be an older adult in this day and age. Technology has been making life increasingly convenient, encouraging independence and extending lifespans. Expectations for increasingly long average lifetimes are expected with the advancement of modern healthcare. This provides you with plenty of time and independence to enjoy your years, be involved in the community and travel to your heart’s content. It has been contended that there has never been a better time to be a senior adult.
