lifestyle_logo

There is so much advice out there these days that discuss living in the moment. How you should take each day as it comes and be in the present moment. All of which is solid advice. You can’t do anything about the past. So there is no point dwelling on it. But, your future is always worth consideration. When you have a moment to think about it. You can make a real difference to it. The future hasn’t happened yet.

It’s all about making plans for the future. To make sure that you are secured in your home, financially, and your health. When retirement comes round what are you going to do with yourself? There is no point worrying about the future. It just takes a moment from time to time to put some plans together so that when the future becomes your present you can live in the moment. Just like you have always done. Comfortable and happy. If you haven’t already here are the things to consider to make sure your future is bright.

What are you going to do when retirement starts?

Of course, it’s difficult to predict how you will feel come the time to leave your work life behind. But having an idea of what you would like to do would be worthwhile. Do you plan on traveling? Perhaps learning something new? If traveling is something you may want to consider, then maybe have an outline of the places you want to visit. The cultures you want to experience. Also developing a savings plan now for something like that could be beneficial. Saving just the smallest amount each month now will add up by the time you have to use it. It takes the worry out of saving and also allows you to live out your retirement exactly how you want to. It just takes a few ideas of how you want to spend the time, to avoid any period of nothing.

Are you financially secure for your future?

There are many ways you can secure your future financially. The earlier you start to think about it the better off you will be. You may want to look into a workplace pension to start with. Your employer may already have these things in place for you. As you contribute from your salary each month so will your employer. Building up a value for when the times comes to cash it in. Additionally, you may want to invest in a personal pension yourself. Employment pensions don’t tend to be as lucrative as some of the ones you can get on the market. Again little and often will all add up in years to come.

You could decide to put some money away yourself each month. It could be a small amount that you wouldn’t miss. The price of a cup of coffee or lunch out. Over the years, that amount will add up to put you in a position to perhaps buy a new car or pay off some debts.

Finally, you could think about equity release. You may have spent years paying off a mortgage, or own your property out right. IT doesn’t mean you have to move to get some of the value back. You could release equity and have a lump sum. This could then pay towards a holiday, home improvements or just allow you to enjoy your later years. Having worked so hard over the years, it’s only right to have some fun when all that is over.

Where do you want to spend your retirement?

The last thing to consider would be where you want to live or spend your retirement years. You may only live in the place you do now because it’s convenient for work, or has great local schools. Maybe there is somewhere you’ve always wanted to live but because of those practicalities, you will never get round to it. Then put it in your mind to do it when you can. This could be living in the country, another town or even abroad. We spend a lot of our lives doing things we have to do. Working to pay bills. Living close to family or schools for the benefit of our young family. But when retirement comes round and the family is all grown up then what better time to change things up.

You don’t need to spend lot’s of time thinking about these things. But by putting a few thing in place and, at least, having a plan, you are well on your way to having a secure and bright future.
