How to Avoid a Failed Retirement
In retirement, there is no "one size fits all." What many of us want and ultimately choose is very personal, even within a marriage. One spouse may have expectations that are very different from the other spouse. Regardless of the variations in lifestyles, it is how we navigate these differences that will determine how happy and successful we are in our retirement. A spouse who is bored, unfulfilled, lost, and unhappy or having regrets about retiring could cause retirement to fail  Read More>>>

Coping With Change in Retirement
All change carries with it the risk of the unknown and the unexpected. Some find these adjustments exciting and welcome the challenge. These people are able to go with the flow. Others follow the path of redirection reluctantly, dragging their heels all the way and feeling threatened.

Gathering clutter can become an unconscious obsession that ends up taking on a life of its own. Within one month of listening to this teleclass, I received my Oprah magazine in which she devoted space to a number of articles and tips on how to de-clutter your life. I thought it was interesting that the topic of clutter had shown  Read More>>>

This is because they aren't used to the flexible schedule and miss meeting and socializing with others in work related activities. They also miss the predictability of their days and nights.  Read More>>>

They see it as a time to enjoy low-keyed activities that truly make them happy. Activities like traveling, sleeping, watching television, writing a book, reading magazines, spending quality time with their grandchildren, watching foreign films, going on lunch outings, etc. On the other hand, some people view  Read More>>>

Spring Cleaning in Retirement
You may remember spring cleaning the way I do. Everything was scrubbed, scoured, dusted, cleaned and aired. Today spring cleaning isn't always done as extensively as it was when I was a child. I remember washing windows and blinds, searching out any cobwebs that formed during the winter, opening all the windows and letting fresh air in. I also remember cleaning everything - whether it was nailed down or not. Spring cleaning was a major undertaking, often requiring several days to complete. I  Read More>>>

I hear so many retirees say they are bored. This sentiment also takes the form of, "I don't have enough to do to fill my time."

Challenge Your Mind in Retirement
You have probably heard people say that the best way to keep your mind sharp after retirement is to exercise it. This "use-it-or-lose-it thinking" is the subject of much debate. Many are deeply committed to this belief while others are skeptical. Although I cannot tell you mental activity will prevent Alzheimer's, I do believe mental activity will prevent mental atrophy. The brain works by sending messages across nerve connections. The more we use and reinforce those connections,  Read More>>>

Transitioning into Retirement
The retirement "zone" If you're considering retirement within the next five years or so, you're in the retirement "zone."
