Since 2011, on average, 10,000 Baby Boomers have been turning age 65 every day and they will continue to do so through 2029. In its most recent survey of those ages 18 and older, nonprofit Transamerica Institute found that almost one in four individuals are now fully retired.

Retirement is a time in life when people transition out of the workforce with more free time to enjoy life. But, when we do so, we are leaving our paychecks behind. We will need to live on income from Social Security, employer pensions and 401(k)s, and other savings and investments. For most people, this is far easier said than done.

If you took a poll asking folks if they could cease indulging their unhealthy habits, I suspect the response would be largely in favor, but the question is: How?

Do you have a grasp of retirement investing? Do you understand the terminology? If you do, then you are among the relatively few.

The holiday season is a time of joy and togetherness, but it can also be stressful for many people. Gratitude is a powerful emotion that can bring happiness into our lives and put us at ease. It's the act of focusing on what you have rather than what you lack—and it has many health benefits.

Often times in life, expectations and reality diverge. The weather forecast may call for rain but then it’s sunny all day. Or your map app says it will take 45 minutes to reach your destination, but an unexpected detour takes an hour and a half. Some things turn out better, others may turn out worse, and others may simply be totally different than expected.

While these disconnects happen in our daily experiences, they can also hap...
