We all know the importance of getting your finances in order and creating a financial plan when you are on the brink of retirement. However, creating a “leisure plan” can be just as important to a successful retirement.
This recent USA Today article discusses the significance of planning how you may want to spend your leisure time in your golden years. “Retirement will be the first time since you were 5 when your days will be ‘nearly completely unstructured’… And without something to do, you’ll likely be unhappy.”
Remember: Rockbridge is here to help you plan before retirement and throughout retirement – no matter how you decide to spend your time.
