Creating a structure to your days when you no longer work can be one of the more challenging parts of retirement. It may sound fun to have no plans or to sit on the couch all day and watch TV. But after a few weeks of total freedom, boredom often sets in.
Taking the time now to really think about what you want to do when you have lots of time on your hands may help make the transition into retirement much smoother.
Try filling out the “My Plans for Retirement” pages as a place to start. Talk about your ideas with your spouse or partner, your children, your friends.
Then, post a note about what you discovered. Your ideas just might inspire someone else.
