Pension - the finish or start of new opportunities?

Most of people wait for the coming anniversary with double feeling. On the one hand - rather pension, all - it is not necessary to go to work, and with another - fear of uselessness, any completeness. It is necessary to tell that psychologically not prepared “young“ pensioners take hard the period of adaptation to new life when more alarm clock is not necessary, plans and reports consigned to the past of a RAM.
