The Best Tips For Adjusting To Retirement?
Recognize Which Stage Of Retirement You Are In!
Stages Of Retirement
Much has been written about the various stages of retirement. The research seems to indicate that the stages of retirement are also linked to our personality as well as our emotional preparation for retirement. It is no surprise that personality and retirement go hand in hand but from personal experience I would like to declare that when I retired I seemed to acquire personality traits I never knew I had. As far as my emotional preparation for retirement was concerned all I knew was that being retired meant I did not have to work 15 hours a day (special needs teacher), work weekends and prepare my classroom when I was “on holiday”
I have listed my retirement stages as I experienced them. There is no attempt to portray them as a definitive, research based paper on the psychology of retirement. However, they are an accurate portrayal of where I was and where I am now. Please let me know if you recognise any of them!
