One should think about their hobbies and interests that they currently have. Are there hobbies you would like to pursue but haven’t due to work responsibilities? Do you wish you had more time to spend traveling and seeing the world? Do any or all of your personal interests translate to a full and meaningful retirement? Imagining your daily retirement schedule should be part of your retirement plan.
For some people the hobbies they planned to pursue turn out to be more time-consuming or more physically demanding than they thought. Many people reach retirement and want to move away from the colder temperatures, or want to move for financial reasons. It is important to explore retirement expectations before you have reached retirement. Perhaps the hobbies you planned to devote full-time to are not the hobbies you want to do on a full-time basis. Having a clear vision of how your daily retirement life will be is important to think about when planning retirement. Practicing your retirement plans could be your best pre-retirement planning activity.
