In this episode, we'll go through concerns that retirees face emotionally and psychologically, as well as solutions for overcoming them. When leaving a professional career, one difficulty is the loss of identity or purpose.

People will have a lot of depressive thoughts when they are dealing with this loneliness and social isolation. So, in order to overcome this, socializing and getting help are required. To fully appreciate the planned activities and goals in retirement, keep in mind how important it is to focus on your emotional and psychological well-being.
