Retirement Lifestyle Planning
Retirement lifestyle planning is not on the minds of most Baby Boomers. They have focused all of their attention on their careers and have not given much thought to what they will do for retirement. To stop working without a retirement lifestyle plan often results in boredom, poor health, and strained marriages. Just like a well-developed career, a fulfilling and affordable retirement requires a vision and goals. With a retirement lifestyle plan in place, Boomers can approach the future with excitement and passion rather than fear.
In studies by the University of Michigan, having a purpose in life or a plan for retirement has shown to reduce the risk of stroke by 73%. A study of participants from the Rush Memory and Aging Project demonstrated that having a strong purpose substantially reduced risk of adverse cognitive health outcomes, including the risk of Alzheimer disease.
