Enjoyment, amusement and lighthearted pleasure are all apt descriptors of ‘fun’ – one of the most overlooked and (for some) underrated parts of life in retirement. Retirees typically experience a strong sense of liberation from their hard-working and often workaholic pasts and report having more freedom, more fun, new beginnings and greater emotional well-being than at any other point in their lives.

Fun is one of the most important – and underrated – ingredients in any successful venture. If you're not having fun, then it's probably time to call it quits and try something else.
– Richard Branson

Having fun takes planning. Planning for retirement leisure can have a very positive impact and those who have done some preparation are far more likely to say retirement is more fun, enjoyable and pleasurable. Yet, very few people actually plan for this important dimension of their retirement experience.
