Far too often, people in the United States are retiring with plenty of “gas left in their tank,” only to find it difficult to transition into that next chapter in their life’s journey.
According to the World Health Organization, people are living longer, and human longevity will continue to increase in the coming decades. This projection yields more urgency for people to design lifestyles around activities we find mentally stimulating.
For some, working in retirement, particularly work that centers around a person’s passion, can be fulfilling in a variety of ways. To that point, the “out to pasture” stereotype linked to retirement, particularly in the United States is now stale and untrue.
