Keys to Happiness

From our years of research at Transition Planning Australia, we’ve concluded that there are five keys to happiness –

We usually satisfy the needs for these aspects in our work, ensuring that we are physically and mentally healthy, have a range of social connections, and our life has some meaning and purpose. However, as we phase out of full-time work, it is important to take the time to plan new or additional activities to replace the work-related activities, because they will disappear when we leave work. This planning will help fill the void that could otherwise arise in our lives.

Research shows those who do not create a plan for their lives after full-time work often fall into a hole; they become bored and depressed and that can lead to physical and mental illness.

25 Years of Retirement

Typically, we retire in our mid-60s. Our life expectancy is into the late 80s or early 90s. Thus, most of us can expect to be retired for 25 years – and that’s a long time.

Our retirement will certainly be longer than that of our predecessors, and we are more likely to enjoy better health than them. Therefore, it’s important that we take the time to plan activities to fill in these 25 years – activities which satisfy the keys to happiness.
