A Happy Retirement: A Small Guide to Living Big

Throughout life, we envision a time when all our years of professional and academic investment pay off. A time when we can sit in comfort and quiet knowing we’ve earned it, having put in the hard work, effort and long hours. It’s all too common that frustration and resignation are what many people feel when they realize they’re unable to live the retirement of their dreams despite having worked their whole lives to provide for their families. 

While money is obviously an integral part of bringing you financial security, a happy retirement doesn’t always have to reside in it. It’s often more about identifying things in life that bring you the most happiness, like meaningful relationships, pursuing passions and, above all, taking care of your health. The most fulfilling life for a retiree is often the one that provides the most activity-oriented to personal interests, where people are able to work at their own pace on something that genuinely brings them joy and satisfaction. Learn about activities for seniors here.

Remind yourself regularly that ultimately, it’s your health that will determine whether you are able to enjoy your retirement or not. Be your number one priority and think about how you want to live your post-work years with that mindset. Choose a retirement option that grants you the quality of life through access to health facilities and be sure to keep on top of preexisting or chronic conditions.
