I can't even begin to imagine the "Next Normal"
It's normal to feel overwhelmed. Navigating this uncertain phase can be tough, whether you were forced to retire, face financial issues, health challenges, or just miss social connections. It's easy to imagine the worst and hard to picture the best, but neither is guaranteed. but you can prepare for both and shape your future with your decisions today. A retirement coach can help you expand your perspective and stay agile and prepared.
"Retirement planning is all about having the right financial plan."
Many people believe that successful retirement means having a great financial plan. But when you face changes in your daily routine, status, and social contacts, it’s the non-financial side that will define if your retirement is meaningful or regretful. It’s about finding meaning, purpose, and identity in your new life. What is becoming most important to you in life?
"Can't wait for having my spouse all to myself."
That sounds wonderful! Just make sure your spouse is on the same page. It's helpful to discuss and agree on things like time spent together, retirement timing, finances, roles, family obligations, living arrangements, and future plans to avoid heading into a conflict zone.
"I want to remain relevant!"
One effective way to remain relevant is by assessing your skills and strengths. Then, identify a need within your family or community where you can contribute meaningfully.
“I arise in the morning torn between the desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

– E.B.White
"I'm retired but not ready to stop working."
Some people prefer to continue working with more flexible hours, while others start a new career or build their own business. No matter your choice, having a plan will make it much easier to begin.
"Now I can spend all my time with my grandkids!"
And how wonderfully rewarding that will be! But remember, grandchildren grow up fast and start focusing on their own friends and interests. With all the extra time you’ll have, how will you make the most of your own life?
"I'll have all the time in the world to figure things out once I am retired."
Transitioning to retirement can be a big change. You’ll move from a structured, busy work life to having total freedom with your time. How will you prepare for this shift? Do you have enough hobbies and interests to keep you truly engaged.
"Not to worry, I have loads of friends!"
Just remember that your social circle has mostly been work colleagues. Research shows that many retirees experience a decline in social participation. Your solution? Participate in activities that offer social connections, like environmental, social, and political causes, or volunteer work centered on doing good.
