Financial security is not the only way to be happy with retirement. Dr. Fred Fraunfelder and Dr. Jim Gilbaugh discussed traits that help define a happy retirement.
These traits are listed in their book, "Retirement Rx." Fred says of the book, "it's a book on the nonfiscal side, the nonfinancial side of retirement."
By doing research, with 1,200 patients, they had significant results from this, and found that their number one trait was planning. And planning is the key to retirement.
