When we are extremely busy, the idea of unlimited free time is tempting. So, when people finally reach retirement and do not wake up to an alarm clock every day and instead go golfing, it is no surprise that they experience an initial #honeymoon phase.
After a while, boredom, loneliness, or a lack of purpose can set in.
Retirees feel an emotional letdown after a while of living without a schedule or productive role. If a retiree has not replaced the social contact they had at work with frequent social engagements, they feel lonely and miss the socialization work offered them.
Adjusting your lifestyle and not taking for granted the joys of retirement are ways to re-establish a positive feeling about your retirement. Filling your schedule with more #trips, time with #family and #friends, meaningful #hobbies, volunteering, or picking up new activities helps to re-orient you towards a more meaningful retirement.
Even during times of boredom or disillusionment retirees APPRECIATE FINANCIAL STABILITY. That option is priceless.
