Monthly catch-ups to help keep individuals ‘connected’ to their plan.
1. Career & Work – Work offers us a range of benefits, from income to a sense of place, routine and values. Defining our skills and strengths will be important to the way we shape our lives in retirement.
2. Health & Wellbeing – In order to enjoy life and take up opportunities available to us, we need a certain level of health and wellbeing, physically, emotionally in our connections to the world.
3. Money – It’s never too late to plan for the future and a small investment in time now will go a long way to ensuring a sustainable lifestyle in retirement.
4. Family, Whanau & Friendships – A significant part of our social needs are met through working alongside others in the workplace. When this part of our life is reduced, we can feel ourselves out of the loop unless other social networks are in place.
5. Travel, Hobbies & Social Life – There are as many ways to enjoy our time as there are people. Here we break down the categories that are common across all activities.
6. Personal Learning & Development – Just because we finish full time work, it doesn’t mean we stop learning and developing. There is now vast evidence that those of us who keep learning are happier and more mentally fit.
