If you’re approaching the age of retirement, you might be struck with the sudden realisation… what do I do with all that time? And how do I plan for it? Retirement is great because you can truly do anything with your time, from spending time with family and friends to travelling the world.
Here are some of Alfix’s top tips to help you plan for retirement.
One of the key things to do before retirement is to get your finances in check. Have a look through all the pensions you may have accrued over the years and see how much money you have in your bank accounts and in assets. This will let you know how much you have to live on.
While it can be nice to do things in the spur of the moment, retirement is a great time to start booking those outings and events you’ve always wanted to go to but never had the time. Try to book whatever you want to do in advance, this way you’ll be able to plan your schedule properly and have events to look forward to.
While retirement can be fun, it is also a sign you are getting older and might not be as spry as you used to be. Entering retirement is a great time to make some reasonable adjustments to your life to make it a lot easier for you. For example, you might be finding it a bit harder to get up the stairs, so you could consider installing a stairlift to get you up them.
And don’t beat yourself up thinking that sounds lazy, making reasonable adjustments can actually keep you and your body healthier for longer, even if it seems in the short term you’re cutting corners.
