Keep reading to learn more about whether you are ready to retire or not and how My Retired Doctor can help you through the process if you are!
- Are you financially ready to retire?
- Are you physically ready to retire?
- Are you mentally ready to retire?
The first question you need to ask yourself is whether or not you are financially ready to retire. This involves more than just looking at your bank account and retirement statements. You should meet with your financial advisor to review all of your financial information and determine whether or not you are in the financial position to retire. Something else to consider is your budget. You should try living on your estimated retirement budget for 6 months to ensure that the budget is appropriate.
Something else to consider is whether or not you are physically ready to retire. Are you physically fit and able to enjoy retirement? If not, now is the time to start getting in shape or get any medical issues checked out.
Last, but certainly not least, is whether or not you are mentally ready to retire. It is important to remember that you will be going from a very regimented schedule to a much more flexible schedule to potentially no schedule at all. You will also be going from interacting with people every day, to potentially not seeing people for days at a time if you do not have social events. Be sure that you have things lined up so that you can stay mentally fit and engaged when you retire as well.
