So how long does it take for retirees to struggle with the “no-more-work rules”?
Well, in Britain. Not long. And probably not long here, either.
A survey by the National Citizens’ Service found that the average retiree was bored just one year after being free from employment.
In describing their new life, 1,000 British retirees most commonly used words were “boring”, “lonely” and “quiet.”
The most frequent activities were reading, watching television, and hanging out at home with significant others and 1 out of 4 retirees said every day felt the same since retiring.
Four in ten wanted to work part-time again to meet new people and get out of the house.
The survey was conducted by market research firm OnePoll.
