CK:IN the book "The Joy of Not Working," the author recommends that you start developing a wide range of hobbies and interests NOW. Or at least write them down. That way, you'll be able to develop your own life structure after retirement, the structure that work used to provide. He recommended at least one that gets you out of the house two or more times a week as well as some form of daily exercise. As much fun as golf or any other single activity may be, it won't be enough to fill an entire life.So, what's on your list?I loved "The Joy of Not Working". Perhaps because it might be a lifesaver later on. I sometimes worry about what life for me will be like in retirement. It's not that I don't have interests. I just think that it is hard to anticipate what the impact of "losing structure" will be. I like to take several long vacations during the year and I have always enjoyed them, but I suspect it's not the same as never going back to work again. My interests:ReadingGardeningReal EstateHikingFishingMy plan is to relocate to the Blue Ridge mountains from the coastal plain of Virginia where I can indulge my interests to the max. I suspect that after a while I may discover that I need challenges beyond what my interests are capable of providing. I hope not, but if so it will be nice to know that the options are endless.Regards,FMO
