Making the most of retirement.

Things have changed dramatically for the current generation of retirees.   These days when we retire, we hopefully have some 25-30 years of active life ahead of us.  It’s a huge opportunity.  However the change from a work situation, to one where there is no structure, is one of the biggest challenges of our lives.

Whatever the length of time we worked and spent travelling to work, and whatever aspirations we have for retirement, filling 40-50 hours each week’s on top of previous leisure times, for the next 25 years, is a major feat!

That’s why going on a pre-retirement course can be one of the best things you can do.   A 2009 study of University of Greenwich found a highly significant increase in life satisfaction among people who had attended such courses, as did a survey by retirement specialists ‘Laterlife Learning’.

What is a pre-retirement course?

There are many such courses, which are purely, or largely, financial.   However we’re concerned here with those that focus mainly on the lifestyle aspects of retirement and also include financial.

The courses help you to think about retirement and the implications, in all it’s aspects and challenge many pre-conceived ideas.

The purpose of such courses is to encourage participants to think seriously about all aspects of their forthcoming retirement in a structured way, so as to increase their chances of enjoying and making the most of this potentially fulfilling phase of their life and avoiding some of the common pitfalls.

A good course will be highly interactive, led by an experienced facilitator and will engage participants in thinking through the changes they are going to undertake and specifically looking at each area of their retirement plans from their own perspective.

As a result of attending the course, participants will often see retirement in a way they won’t have done before and as a result clearly identify issues, opportunities and pitfalls and have lots of ideas and new areas to consider.

For those worried about retirement it will also overcome concerns and fears, making retirement an opportunity to look forward to.

Retirement these days is a time of opportunity and choice.
