Retirement is a great time. It’s the time for a well-deserved rest, the time to enjoy simple things while having the feeling of accomplishment.
However, retirement is also subject to many questions, even to some apprehensions. Indeed, the transition between the world of work and retirement is sometimes experienced brutally by new retirees.
Quitting work, colleagues, and habits overnight can be particularly difficult for some. In addition, one can live his retirement like a deliverance, but find himself lost faced with this exceptional free time.
Finally, and unfortunately, retirement is sometimes accompanied by financial difficulties, which must be overcome.
You had your retirement because you combined the legal retirement age and the duration of insurance required for retirement at the full rate. However, certain professional activities remain compatible and authorized.
Retiring can be a huge change, a real upheaval. Some of us are struggling to get used to this revolution, and keeping a job for a while can be a good way to slide from working life to “real” retirement gradually. We will then have all the time in the world to discover new activities to enjoy life.
When you have retirement, you have to be careful with your expenses to avoid unpleasant surprises. The great news is, you don’t have to roll gold to keep busy. In reality, many very stimulating activities are entirely free. In reality, museum visits, walks, gardening, sewing, sports, or reading will cost you almost nothing. Besides, with the emergence of the internet, you also have access to an infinite amount of free content. You are spoiled for choice!
It is unfortunate. Retirement is sometimes accompanied by financial difficulties. But luckily, just because you’re retired doesn’t mean you can’t do anything. On the contrary! All your life, you have accumulated an experience that can be precious for others. In addition, thanks to the universal service employment check (CESU), you can now offer your services very easily! So here are a few extra jobs that you could partially fill to make ends meet.
What could be better than looking after a child? If you have raised children, this is an activity that you have mastered with your fingertips. It’s like cycling. It’s not forgotten. So, offer your services in your neighborhood, and keep the children of your neighbors! You will see that a baby’s smile is worth all the gold in the world!
You rarely think about it when you’re retired, but renting a room in your home can be a very effective way to make ends meet. In fact, once the children have left, we often have a free room in our house, and you can also enjoy a company that is always great!
With your experience, you are surely able to give lessons to young people. Depending on your skills, you can accompany a child for his French, math, or history lessons. Post an ad! You can also help with homework with children in your neighborhood.
If you have retirement, you can also try to reduce your expenses without reducing your lifestyle. To do this, identify your monthly expenses (telephone, electricity, insurance, etc.) and see if they are compressible. You can use comparators, or use the services of a broker.
