You hit retirement age, received a gold watch, maybe a new set of golf clubs, and spent your Golden Years hitting the links in the Carolinas.
Not any more.
Nowadays people are living longer, fuller lives much different from past generations.
For millions of people, retirement is no longer a graceful skate into the sunset. Now retirement is a subjective term as more and more people are rediscovering themselves in their later years.
And people are creating a retirement in the Carolinas that works for them.
This phenomena is due to several factors.
People are living longer and are in better health. Memberships to gyms are skyrocketing, especially in the 55 and older age group.
Paired with this are fears of social security dwindling and increases in the cost of living. More and more people are considering the Carolinas and the lower cost of living as an option.
Combine these factors and it makes sense that more and more people are redefining what retirement means to them. Playing nine holes a day, and catching the evening news or early bird buffet isn’t fulfilling any more.
And it has become accepted that to age successfully, you need to stay active, connected and involved. You need a sense of purpose.
People often embrace opposite sides of their personalities and interests, which they’ve never had the time or a vehicle to express previously, when they retire.
How will you decide what type of retirement is right for you? And where your money will last the longest? Should you move to the Carolinas?
Retirement has indeed changed from a lazy Sunday to one of the most exciting times in a person’s life.
With the right planning, the possibilities are endless. If you’ve got the health, you’ve got the time, and now you can get to some of the things you’ve always wanted to do.
But before you do…..there are 7 Steps you must take to Creating a Fulfilling Retirement. These are the things that will help you to define your retirement.
So, let’s get started with Step 1…Time For Thought.
Good luck to you, and good health!
