Some years back when I finally retired from office work I felt like experiencing a culture shock. The issue was not needing to wake up and rush since I would be going nowhere. On the upside I have my own time and I have more time for leisure than for working. That was the time I realized that it is better to handle the house chores than to while away my time in watching tv. It took me about 3 months before I was able to adjust to the new lifestyle. Fortunately for me, I have the support of my family so there was no conflict whatsoever in my changed lifestyle.
