You can retire with all the money in the world, but that doesn’t guarantee that you will be happy in retirement. People often get caught up in saving enough money for retirement, but they sometimes overlook other aspects of retirement, such as what they will do with their time and what they need to remain happy once they stop working. While money is very, very important to retirement, so too is the happiness and mental well-being of the retiree. Depression is not uncommon with retirees, especially those so closely tied to their work. Loneliness is another problem for some people in retirement. Often these are common issues for people whose work lives–and the relationships formed with co-workers–prop up their social lives. Furthermore, feelings of depression and loneliness have been proven to have a negative affect on your overall health and can lead to unhealthy lifestyles and habits. With all this said, you shouldn’t overlook the financial aspect of retirement, but you also shouldn’t ignore the social and mental aspects of retirement either. Taking the time before you retire to consider what makes you happy and what you will do in retirement to remain happy is very important and something you should do before you decide to finally call it quits on the working world.
