So you dreamed about retiring for years and thought it was going to be awesome. You slept in late, then puttered around the house trying a few of those hobbies you dabbled in over the years but ended up bored out of your mind.
The challenges, discipline and rigor of your work life are gone to be replaced with day time television, video games, and eating too much of the wrong things.
All the great things you were going to do (if only you had the time) now seem to hold no interest. Personal hygiene is now optional, weight gain and health problems seem inevitable and stress of the working world has been replaced with a new type of stress.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Retirement Depression… yep… it’s a thing – and if you don’t figure out what to do with yourself the prognosis is bleak.
