Retirement from work is one of those moments in life that you want when you go through exhausting days and you don’t want to know anything more about your job… but the reality is that when it comes along, it scares you a bit and even generates a lot of uncertainty about how to follow the rhythm of life without the work routine and free of obligations.
In some cases, many come to consider retirement from work as a stage of unproductivity, boredom and the arrival of old age, while others see it as a great moment in their lives where they will enjoy more time to do those things that they could not do before, spend pleasant moments with the family, travel and rest.
“We were educated to fulfill the role of worker, for nothing else, so finishing our productive stage causes us conflict,”
Well, if you are about to retire… or someone in your family is about to do so, here are 3 tips that will help a lot to face this new stage in life:
- Personal life:
Maintain a personal (family and social) life that is as active as your professional life and reflect on your own tastes and abilities, and choose a couple of activities that fulfill you spiritually or intellectually.
“It is important to cultivate your personal relationships, to spend as much time as possible with the family. If you are a workaholic and you are not present, your wife and children will continue with their lives, with or without you… try to be there”,
Regarding activities other than work, many people focus on gardening, music, dancing, altruistic activities, painting, and religious support… it will be a matter of inspecting the interior of each one to carry out those activities that before could not be specified due to time and obligations.
- Financial life:
Carry out a financial savings plan throughout the work stage, not only to have savings when the time comes to retire but also to be able to enjoy money and indulge in pleasures such as traveling to those places we always dream of.
- Healthy life:
Lead a healthy life, free of vices and bad habits with good nutrition and constant physical activity. This will ensure you arrive healthy at your retirement and be able to enjoy all the projects and ideas that you want to execute with your family, friends or alone.
Well, remember, retirement is just another state in everyone’s life, where you can enjoy extra time for yourself and those you love most. Live it with love and intensity, without fear, because after all, so many years of work and obligations… have their well-deserved rest.
