Begin the Emotional Shift Before You Leave
A good part of our social lives are work-related, particularly within the community of the emergency services environment. Once you are no longer part of the official office “family,” connections tend to drift away. When you retire, you will still need people in your life but it may not be the people you once worked with. Start building up your stable of non-work friends, preferably people who also have their days available — because that’s the time you will need to fill. Check out Book clubs, jogging or cycling groups, whatever your interests are. But you will need to replace not just the money but the socialisation that came from going to a job every day.
