How can I cheer up my re­tired hubby?


When my hus­band started plan­ning his re­tire­ment, he could barely con­tain his ex­cite­ment. Af­ter work­ing all his life, he’d even made a bucket list of things to tick off. But when he did re­tire, ev­ery­thing changed. He’s strug­gling with not hav­ing a rou­tine and

pur­pose, and in­stead of en­joy­ing the things he’d planned, he does noth­ing. How do I help him get his mo­ti­va­tion back?

Many peo­ple have such ex­cit­ing, glam­orous ideas about what they’ll do with their re­tire­ment. The re­al­ity is of­ten so dif­fer­ent. Per­son­ally, I never want to re­tire, and my motto is, ‘If I don’t move, I’ll rust.’ Maybe be­ing busy is the key for your hubby. En­cour­age him to work his way through that bucket list!
