Men have always had roles and tasks to complete. From protecting and hunting, to farming and building, to the thousands of opportunities available to us today, we’re hardwired to work. And rightly or wrongly, we define our self-worth through our jobs.
The biggest pressures that men in modern life face are earning money for their families and being successful in their careers. We’re a nation of achievers and breadwinners, and the lines between who we are and what we do are blurred. For those of us who do identify with our work, retirement in Canada isn’t just about planning for how much money you need. It can be an especially difficult time in our life. If the prospect of losing yourself in endless golf games and jigsaw puzzles doesn’t excite you, there are ways of managing retirement.
Many men choose to keep working in different ways, for example, becoming mentors to youth or thought-leaders and consultants. Retirement isn’t the end. We can help you redefine yourself and rewrite your life.
Some men fear that managing retirement means you have to surrender your status and way of life. Others find that when they retire, the hype of having free time doesn’t live up to their expectations. If you’re having trouble adjusting to retirement, you are at a higher risk of falling into depression and experiencing stress.
