I just got home from a lovely lunch with former colleagues who are still working full time. Yes, their energy levels were high, they get lots of satisfaction and social interaction from their - and I truly have no desire to get back on that treadmill although the bit of consulting I do suits me just fine. I do want and need more of all the feelings they expressed but I will find ways to structure my non-working hours to produce it. Good to know finally.
So, how to create more energy, satisfaction and social interaction in my life? How are others who are retired or semi-retired making that happen for them?
