Most people think when retirement comes, worries disappear and relaxation, including mental relaxation, begins. Not always the case. If a retiree’s mindset is not properly focused, this season of life can quickly be overshadowed by the burden of constant worry and over-thinking making daily life a nightmare.
One of the greatest aspects of retirement is you have more time. Marketers and the media know this – and they are wholeheartedly committed to leveraging your newfound time on getting your attention – usually through fear. As a result, you are constantly bombarded with information regarding your money, life and retirement. Don’t believe me? Try Googling the word “retirement” and you will literally get thousands upon thousands of hits ranging from investments, insurances, reverse mortgages to long-term care needs and medications.
“You need to do (this action with your money) now or else!”
“Have you considered what you’ll do if (horrible health concern) happens?”
“What are you going to do if you run out of money?”
Do not fall into this trap. You are retired for a specific reason, purpose and assignment. Do not let your mental real estate be dominated by worry and over-thinking.
