Overcome Retirement Blues
Life actually starts after retirement. Unfinished dreams at home and the society can be accomplished.
The best time in life that needs to be cherished the most.
So I am sure you have read through my previous article on retirement. As I had promised to continue on the subject I take the privilege to put forth my thoughts.
Before retirement you work for money. After retirement, let money work for you. I mean invest wisely in banks and financial instruments that give you ample returns. Once you keep earning money and are not dependent on others you feel independent and hence do not feel left out. The catch word is investing wisely. It should give you regular monthly income not only to survive or sustain but to lead a life like ever before.
The next very important thing you must do is keep yourself busy and not have the luxury of time. Prior to retirement you should plan and enroll into a library to spend quality time reading. You can join a group which is actively engaged in social work and contribute your expertise. You can spend time with your family when they are less busy. You can learn languages so that you can visit other countries which were your dream. You can spend time in the garden if you choose to. You can join your son's firm to give your valuable suggestions when asked.
All these and much more can keep your mind busy. Hence you do not go through the trip which most people go through after retirement. Ample time is at your disposal, all of a sudden you find everyone else is busy and you are not, so keep yourself busy too. Ensure to do all things you always wanted to do or loved to do, but, never had time during your employment. Maybe even simply bird watching and admiring God Almighty for all the greenery around.
Do something; do anything; but do not become a pain to others by interfering in their life just because you have the time. You will be not only doing the others a favor but also helping yourself from going through retirement blues.
In continuation to retirement comes my next article. Keep reading.
