Specifically, retire abroad in a place with a low cost of living more economical than in the US.

How to Deal with Reality

The hardest part of retiring is undoubtedly learning to live a more simple lifestyle. Many people have ready planned for it, and why some people are not. Some people think that after working so hard in their entire life, now should be the time of rewards. However, if you’ve watched your investments dwindle in the past 10 years, you now have to face it whether you like it or not.

So how does a person get a grasp on something like scaling down their house to a condo? Or even an individual or perhaps two-bedroom condo? First, you would like to look at all the positives. No yard work. No maintenance work, which in turn as your age becomes almost impossible sets you up to be taken advantage of by home service providers.

Offer things that are not meaningful to you and your kids, and they will be able to care for them and appreciate them longer, whenever you scale down to just the things you need to get through the rest of your life.

Try as much as possible to improve your relationships, and let go things that are not important. Learn how you can live with less, and you will be able to retire happier
