10 Non-Financial Tips for Retiring Boomers

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font
image Joan & Steve Carter

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.

I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for something referring to this.
