A lot of the more than 76 million baby boomers headed toward retirement are losing sleep at night, but not because they’re worried about having enough money to retire. They’re wondering what they want to do with the rest of their life.

If you’re one of the millions of baby boomers beginning to think about retirement, here are tips to help you along the way:

1. Life’s about more than money. Start thinking seriously about your retirement about five years before you expect to quit the workforce.

2. Make life plans. It is important to plan for the non-financial aspect of retirement by considering what will make you happy. Maybe you’ll climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, or go dog sledding in Alaska or have time to write the next great American novel, or even continue to work part-time. Make a life plan and tick off your experiences as you move ahead.

3. Find a purpose. Find something on an ongoing basis that provides you with joy and structure to your life. This can involve travel, hobbies or even new career training.
