RETIREMENT PLANNING

FIVE R’s OF RETIREMENT

  1. Education professionals understand the three R’s, says Dave Bernard. He’s the author of the books / Want to Retire and Navigating the Retirement Jungle and suggests five pillars for a happy retirement.
  2. Reward yourself. Don ‘t put pressure. Be as busy or leisurely as you wish. That freedom is its own reward.
  3. Rejuvenate your life. With the pace of work, you can get locked in to certain behaviours and habits. Now’s the chance for a fresh start.
  4. Refocus your energies. You have time for things in life that may not have always received the full attention they deserved - your family, friends and health, not to mention your passions outside work.
  5. Renew your interests. Revisit old pastimes or pick up new ones, whatever engages you.
  6. Respect your limitations. “Tr y not to regret what you can no longer do, but instead rejoice at what you are still capable of,” says Bernard.
