There are many things to consider when you are planning for retirement. Whether you are within one, five—or more—years from leaving the full-time workforce, you no doubt have questions about how to make a smooth transition to post-work life.
You can still register for the remaining virtual workshops in the Fall JHU Pre-Retirement Program series. These upcoming webinars offer insight into completing a midcareer retirement check-in, explain the steps to creating your retirement income plan, and offer a guided journaling exercise to help you envision your retirement.

Envisioning Retirement—A Guided Visual Journaling Exercise
Friday, Sept. 22, noon to 1 p.m.
How about taking a mindful moment to visualize what your days in retirement may look like? Join Rachel Liccardo as she leads the group through a guided visual-journaling activity. This exercise will help you learn ways to reduce stress around approaching retirement and to open up about your emotions or challenges. You will need a piece of paper and something with which to write. Artistic ability is not a requirement, but if you enjoy arts and crafts, feel free to use supplies to make a colorful visual. This workshop is available only to Johns Hopkins affiliates, not guests. Space is limited.
