How To Retire In Style

How To Retire In Style

Retirement means very different things to different people. For you, it may mean completely transitioning out of full-time work, while for others they’re just cutting back. Regardless of what your plan is, it should be focused on living a happy and healthy life. Here are some tips to get you pointed in the right direction:

Plan Ahead

Planning for retirement is always a good idea. Whether that’s buying a second home to transition into or selling assets you no longer need to hold on to. Map out where you want to end up, and what kinds of things you’d like to do once you’re there. Remember that your plan doesn’t need to make sense to anyone else but you. This is your time!

Find The Perfect Place

One of the biggest perks of retirement is that you finally have time to go and do whatever you want. However, a stand-alone home is a constant responsibility involving regular maintenance, so it’s not always convenient to travel. A waterfront condo not only provides a beautiful home with resort style amenities but requires almost no maintenance or care. Meaning that you can travel at the drop of a dime.

Focus On You

You’ve probably spent much of your life caring for the needs of others, pursuing career goals and raising a family. Now is the time to focus on yourself. You could take a class at the neighboring Royal Roads University. Think about your interests and dreams. How would you like to spend your time? Maybe it’s time to pick up paddle boarding, yoga or electric bicycling. The possibilities are endless.

Make A Travel List

Are there places you’ve always wanted to visit? Make a list of all the people and places you’d like to see and then plan the best course of action. Focus on ideas, getting as specific as possible. For example, instead of “travel,” list “trips to the lake” or “tour France.”

Find The Right Lifestyle

Community and lifestyle are key when relocating for retirement. Do you crave outdoor activities or water sports? Do you want easy access to restaurants and shopping? These kinds of questions will help you narrow the search.

Once you’ve found the perfect retirement destination, consider what kinds of amenities you’d like. The great thing about a community with plenty of perks is that when you’re not traveling you can either relax on a patio or invite friends and family to visit you. The flexibility is freeing!
