The Retiring Mind: How to Make the Psychological Transition to Retirement is a new book written by Robert P. Delamontange, PHD. As you can tell from the subtitle this book focuses on the psychological component of retirement rather than the financial component. In the book the author details several self-analytical processes to help you identify your personality type. He then offers suggestions based on your personality type on how to solve problems adjusting to retirement.
I am a ways off from retirement but it makes sense to me that your retirement planning shouldn’t only be focused on your financial needs. Although this blog will remain focused on the financial aspect of retirement one should plan for the aspects of retirement as well. This book can help you plan how you will adjust to retirement.
