Most people think retirement planning is all about the numbers. Will the assets I have accumulated – 401k/IRA, Social Security, real estate, pension, etc. – provide enough income in retirement to fund my lifestyle? Once you reach retirement, you’ll quickly realize there’s much more to preparing for the next chapter of life. Today we’re going to share seven habits that studies show can improve your satisfaction in retirement.

Of course you’re going to need enough money to get by, but you don’t have to possess exorbitant wealth to live a successful retirement. It might surprise you that a study by the University of Pennsylvania’s Matthew Killingsworth found that life satisfaction tops out at an annual salary of $75,000. You’ll need enough money to cover expenses but it’s only one part of a fulfilling retirement.

Retirement is a major transition made up of many financial and life decisions. This is why working with a financial advis0r to create a retirement plan as early as possible is important. That way, you can spend more time focusing on everything else that matters.
