After all, what if retirement is not all that it has been cracked up to be by the friends you have who are currently in the midst of their own retirements? What if they embellished too much? You might also be concerned about your own reaction to retirement.
After so many years working and knowing what you would do every day, can it really be that easy to just walk away? Some would argue that is is not. But if you are concerned about this to any extent, there are ways of making sure that you have the best retirement possible and ensuring that it is as healthy and as happy an experience as you could possibly have.
If you have some passions, it could be worth your while to pursue them, but in terms of daily things, it is important to exercise and socialize as much as you can. Then, you will feel a renewed sense of purpose in your retirement.
