Louise Nayer presented to our Senior Advisory Group at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco. Based on her book, Poised for Retirement: Moving from Anxiety to Zen, she offered great insights from her own life experience as well as experiences from those she interviewed. Depression and loneliness is a fear that some people may experience once they do retire. The question is, how can one cope with this life changing experience and remain healthy? One big take away for me was when it is time for me to retire is looking forward to a new hobby especially one that I’ve always wanted to do but did not have the time.
