With an estimated 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts swimming around the average person’s mind every day, it’s easy to appreciate where the expression ‘lost in thought’ originates from.
And for soon-to-be retirees, it could be forgiven that the imagination can often run away– transporting current consciousness to a future filled with fun, family, freedom and a lot more time.
But here’s a sobering thought amongst that constant flow of mental traffic for those approaching retirement – have you taken the time to focus on your finances at retirement?
The conscious, active, cognitive process of thinking helps us to make new connections and create meaning but with so many emotions, ideas and opinions to consider before embarking on the ‘golden age’, balancing thought and action can be a challenge, with difficult decisions to make.
This month, World Thinking Day (22 February 2018) offers the perfect opportunity for people at all stages of life to channel their thoughts and focus on what is important to them.
The global initiative encourages people to think about the impact of their actions, and at My Pension Expert impact is always our first thought.
