• It’s an unprecedented time!

    In the next decade, an estimated 76 million Baby Boomers will retire! Some Boomers may not have planned to retire soon, but the pandemic’s risks to health for themselves and family members is causing them to pivot, to decide that their health is more important tban preparing for your retirement.

    Has the pandemic forced you to confront the need for retirement. Or have you already retired, but are now but feeling unfocussed and dissatisfied with your new life stage?

    Conventional stereotypes of retirement have long assumed aging must mean declining health and engagement in life. A recent recent AARP study documents how these stereotypes are reinforced by social media. But retirees don’t have to accept this view. Living longer lives, they are now seeking a new vision of later life. There is now a new name for this stage. Now, it’s no longer “Old Age,’ but “Third Age.”

    The notion of “Third Age “ does not envision retirement as an ending, but as a transition to a new, exciting phase of life! Many of us will spend more time in retirement than in our working lives, so we’re impelled to seek ways to achieve and live our retirement dreams.

    Research shows that most people spend more time planning for a two-week vacation than for their retirement. While extensive resources to plan financially for the future exist, it’s just as important to think about all the other aspects of your life that are impacted by retirement.

    Assessments

    The LifeOptions Profile
    The LifeOptions Profile™ developed by Retirement Options assesses retirement readiness across 20 lifestyle and attitudinal dimensions in six life arenas: Career and Work, Health and Wellness, Finance and Insurance, Family and Relationships, Leisure and Social, and Personal Development.

    Upon completion of the assessment, you will receive a personalized report that indicates areas of preparedness and identifies gaps. The LifeOptions Profile™ provides you with a personal, practical, and relevant self-portrait of your lifestyle needs and provides insights on transitioning from your current lifestyle to your retirement lifestyle.

    Character Strengths Survey
    Positive psychologists have identified character strengths as the positive parts of your personality that impact how you think, feel and behave. Character strengths are rooted in your values. They are different than your other personal strengths, such as your unique skills, talents, interests and resources, because they reflect the “real” you—who you are at your core.

    When your goals and actions are aligned with your values, it is easier to be energized in getting into action in pursuit of your goals, and more satisfied when you achieve them. Psychologists have identified 24 character strengths that you have the capacity to express. After taking the Character Strengths Survey, you will receive a 20-page, in depth report in which you will discover your unique character strengths profile. Knowing and applying your highest character strengths is the key to you being your best self.
