Always remember the ups and down soon after your retirement

Seniors need to be aware of the fact that your retirement will not be an all bed of roses but sometimes a bed of thorns. That means that you are prone to facing a number of challenges that might jeopardize you retirement enthusiasm. There are a number of challenges which are also known as ups and downs of retirement. These are problems which might be resolved by being psychologically prepared and not preparing for the best rather than preparing for both the worst and the best. Here are some of the problems you might encounter and ways of preparing well to face them.

You will face boredom and loneliness

As soon as you retire, you will soon realize that you have a lot of time that is spend onĀ doing nothing but resting. With that, you will either be forced to stay indoors or stay outdoors without doing anything. For some seniors who have become used to working, it is a tough thing to sit idle while doing nothing. When you are bored, that becomes the time when you start thinking about the past and the things that you were not able to achieve. In order to handle such a challenge, it important for you to find something that will help you consume you time. For example, if you are in a city, you can come up with a flower garden project where you will be planting flowers just to enjoy it as an activity as well as making it an opportunity to spend your time in the right way.

You might not get the right type of friends

Friends tend to reduce when you advance towards seniority. This is basically because as you grow older and eventually retire, the little friend whom you had closer to you may not be in a position to meet you or visit you at all times. Moreover, considering that the young generation makes a huge percentage, it becomes a challenge for you to have the right kind of friends. In order to solve this, you need to make sure that you be an outgoing senior who is social and ready to be friends even with a 2 year old child. In so doing, you will realize that you have many friends and that boredom is not part of your life anymore.
