Description

There is more to retirement than just having enough money. Many older people dream for years about what they will do once they retire - catch up on their reading, complete projects around the house, take up gardening, travel - only to find that six months later they have accomplished most of their goals!Now what? With people living longer or retiring earlier, the post-retirement period can extend to 25, or even 35 years. Those extra eight hours a day, every day, add up to as many as 50,000 hours of unplanned time! The constant "togetherness" of spouses after retirement can put a severe strain on relationships, and often exposes conflicts that have been hidden by the demands of child-rearing and work routines. Many people have their personal identity tied up with work, or in a profession, and they discover that the dismantling of the social and business structure of a career is more difficult than expected. It is important that people plan for this new and exciting phase of their life just as seriously as they prepared for a career.In "The Adventure of Retirement", consultant and researcher Guild A Fetridge explores those frequently overlooked behavioural, emotional, and lifestyle issues that are vital to a fulfilling retirement. He includes questionnaires and a unique checklist to help readers gauge their attitudes and progress toward retirement; important diet and exercise information; and a guide to some uncommon travel ideas, projects, learning opportunities, events, and associations that can help retirees enjoy life and leisure more. Also included are an extended bibliography and a variety of forms to assist in the retirement planning process.
