Many people get identified with their work to such an extent that retirement feels like a big question mark on what will happen to them once they are ‘released’ from what they did their whole life.
One has to see if working beyond the retirement age is an option, as many do keep working well into their 70s, comforted by the psychological security, social acceptance and financial independence that work provides.
One can start to adjust to retirement and the psychological/emotional aspects of it by planning for this.
Make two lists:
Big life changes always come with uncertainty, but one has to understand that change is a part of life, which is always in a state of flux.
One can ease the transition to retirement by visualizing a day when one is free from the job and has the time to do the enjoyable stuff one cannot do right now.
