Are you ready to enjoy a happy retirement? Of course, you are. Who would want to experience anything else? There are many ways to go about being happy, and being healthy is a good start. After all, a healthy body leads to a happier individual. Eating the right kinds of foods (in the appropriate portions) and exercising helps to keep not only your body healthy but your mind, as well. That’s a great reason to be happy, right there!
Still need more? We are going to introduce you to a number of ways to make sure your retirement life is a happy one. After that, we’ll tell you just a little bit about one of the best places to retire – Discovery Village At The Forum. If happiness is what you desir, living in a resort-like retirement community can’t be beat.
But for now, let’s look at how to better assure yourself a happy retirement.
According to “experts”, though some people think money can buy happiness, spending your funds on gifts, clothes, cars, and durable goods doesn’t particularly increase your satisfaction with life. The temporary joy that you might receive from spending a lot of money on a recreational vehicle or moving to faraway lands can quickly dissipate. On the other hand, spending your hard-earned cash on socialization with others can provide memories you will cherish for the rest of your days.
It’s your money to spend – just think hard about how you spend it.
The more sources of income you can establish, the better. Whereas many retirees survive on a Social Security check, if you have income from other areas, you will have more money with which to enjoy your golden years. If it’s not too late to make some smart investments, you may want to consider it.
Establish Some Savings
As with investments, if there’s still time before you retire, make sure you’re putting some money away for the future – before you actually need it. Give up a few of your more expensive habits and put the money you would have spent on them in an interest-accruing savings account.
If your mortgage hasn’t already been paid off, put some serious work into making sure that it’s taken care of as soon as possible. Pay it off ahead of time if you won’t be penalized and if you can afford to. Compared to people who let their mortgage go for its full, scheduled payback period, people were four times more likely to enjoy their retirement when they paid off their mortgage early. The psychological aspects alone are extremely empowering!
