What is Mindset for Life?
While most retirement planning focuses on the financial aspects of leaving the paid workforce, many people struggle to navigate the emotional, psychological and social changes associated with this life transition. Mindset for Life is a peer group program designed to help people design their own retirement for both pleasure and purpose.
“I had really enjoyed the ‘honeymoon’ period and had enjoyed more freedom but was at the stage where I felt I needed something more,” says Meredith, a recent retiree and one of the program participants.
Over three three-hour sessions, the program guides participants through a series of discussions, activities and expert input via video to reframe retirement and equips them with a ‘kitbag’ of self-reflection tools and resources to use throughout the years ahead. New for 2021, we are also offering a ‘Lite’ version, delivered in one 3-hour session.
The Mindset for Life program encourages people to consider their mindset, wellbeing, social networks and habits as they move into retirement and draws on techniques from narrative therapy and behaviour design to give people practical tools to make positive changes.
