WELCOME TO BABY BOOMER MEMOS
RETIREMENT IS DIFFICULT FOR AGING BABY BOOMERS IF ...
Post-retirement life can be wonderful or difficult or somewhere in-between. Of course, all Baby Boomers want our retirement years to be wonderful, but some of us have difficulty adjusting to jobless lifestyles.
A number of boomers blame adjustment difficulties on the pre-retirement assumption that post-retirement leisure is sublime. We never imagined that excessive leisure could lead to boredom, lethargy, melancholy, et al.
Usually, boredom, et al. surface if retirees lack compelling interests, exciting passions, and ardent causes to pursue in post-retirement - and no clue where to find them. Wouldn't it be fantastic if there were specialty shops that provided custom-made clues?
The solution for boomers who struggle after retirement may be found at local colleges. Enrollment is often free or discounted for older adults. Sign up for a variety of classes and keep an open mind. It is possible that a class will spark curiosity and ignite passion for ... something.
At the very least, this solution presents opportunities for Baby Boomers to structure time, participate in a group activity, and expand our knowledge base. Isn't it worth a try?
