Revitalizing Retirement

Genre: Business & Economics

In preparation for retirement, we are often urged to build up our financial portfolio or perhaps down-size our home or move closer to family. Often neglected in this process, however, are the psychological ramifications that come with the transition into retirement. It is important for retirees to make a plan for their retirement financially, but also to take stock of their psychological portfolio at the same time. This means taking an honest look at how your sense of identity will change with retirement, how your relationships and support systems may change, and how your sense of purpose will be affected. Revitalizing Retirement gives unique guidance on how to create a happy, fulfilling retirement. Nancy K. Schlossberg, a counseling psychologist and author of Retire Smart, Retire Happy, describes the secret to a happy retirement. She encourages readers to reshape their identity, relationships, and purpose. She discusses several coping skills that deal with accepting change and help retirees continue to feel that they are vital members of their community and that they matter. Each chapter contains stories from actual retirees that demonstrate the numerous ways of pursuing an enjoyable retirement. There are short quizzes and discussion questions at the end of each chapter so that readers can reflect on what they have read and see exactly how it relates to their own lives. This book is a must-read for anyone considering retirement in the near future as well as current retirees who may be struggling to find happiness in their daily lives.

Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9781101057094
Release Date: 2009-05-14
Genre: Self-Help

The first scientifically backed guide to a happy, fulfilling retirement. Over the years, Dr. Fritz Fraunfelder and Dr. Jim Gilbaugh have seen thousands of their patients respond differently to the challenges of retirement: some rose to new heights; others hit new lows. The doctors began to wonder: How do some people maintain their vitality, interests, and zest for life in retirement while others became distant, even depressed? Is there a magic formula for retiring well? To find the answer, they designed a comprehensive study involving more than one thousand patients. The results were surprising but clear. Financial planning is not as important to a fulfilling retirement as many may think-the psychological experience is just as crucial. The happiest retirees shared eight key traits; all of them were able to: * plan ahead * maintain a positive attitude * accept change * lean on their support network * have a sense of purpose * keep a healthy lifestyle * engage in leisure activities * enjoy some expression of spirituality Retire Right evaluates the reader and provides guidelines for how to develop each key characteristic. The good news? These essential skills can be strengthened, even acquired from scratch, whether the reader is just starting to plan for retirement, is in the early years, or is a seasoned retiree. The first scientifically backed bulletproof prescription, this book is the most concrete guide to a happy retirement.

A Couple s Guide to Happy Retirement

Author: Sara Yogev P.h.D.
Publisher: Familius
ISBN: 9781938301117
Release Date: 2012-09-15
Genre: Family & Relationships

A Couple’s Guide to Happy Retirement is the most comprehensive book devoted entirely to relationship issues in retirement. Not a treatise on money management this is a much-needed guide to the psychological aspects of retirement and how to make your retirement relationship happy, fruitful, loving, and successful. Written by Dr. Sara Yogev, a psychologist specializing in work and family issues, and drawing from actual accounts from retired couples, this book: Helps you prepare emotionally for the dramatic life changes during retirement; Coaches you to find new purposes to your life beyond work; Nurtures the relationship with your companion to strengthen your friendship and love; Explores sexuality after retirement and how you can enjoy each other as much as you did as a younger couple; Recommends strategies to successfully deal with differences around money, time together versus apart, housework, and family relationships. It is crucial that couples prepare themselves and their marriages psychologically for what could very well comprise a quarter of their lives. “My goal in writing this updated second edition,” writes Dr. Yogev, “is to help retirees find a way to live together happily in retirement age and to have a smooth transition to this life phase.” “The Gray Divorce Phenomenon” or divorce among those 50 years old and older, says Dr. Yogev, provides a cautionary lesson for every couple entering retirement. While overall national divorce rates have declined since spiking in the 1980's, gray divorce has risen to its highest level on record. In 1990 only 1 in 10 people who got divorced was 50 or older, by 2009 the number was roughly 1 in 4. More than 600,000 people ages 50 and older got divorced in 2009. While people devote much time and energy to financial planning for retirement they often neglect to plan and prepare for the psychological and emotional aspects of this change. “Because of the recent economic downturn people are searching for the right mix of money with meaning, of profits with purpose; they seek an intersection of continued income, with purpose and impact, something they will be remembered for.” This book helps you and your relationship in achieving that.

Genre: Business & Economics

Rock Retirement offers inspirational advice on how to enjoy the journey to retirement to its fullest. Traditional retirement advice usually boils down to saving more, sacrificing more, and settling for less. This approach makes people dependent on systems outside their control, such as the market, economy, and investment returns. The result: people lose power over determining their life. What sets Rock Retirement apart is its holistic approach to helping people take back control and act intentionally towards the life they want. It addresses the fears, hopes, and dreams that people have about retirement, goes way beyond the numbers, and shows them how to balance living well today and tomorrow.
