In this article, Richard Eisenberg of Next Avenue shares thoughts from his interview with Wes Moss. The article addresses some of the results from Moss’s study on happy and unhappy retirees what was part of research for his new book “What the Happiest Retirees Know: 10 Habits for a Healthy, Secure, and Joyful Life.”
If you’re curious about how to become one of the happiest retirees and how to avoid becoming one of the least happy retirees, I can offer some surprising guidance.
That’s because of what I learned reading two excellent, new books about all this and talking to their authors for Next Avenue and the “Friends Talk Money” podcast I co-host. (You can hear the episode wherever you get podcasts or at the end of this article.) Hint: when it comes to happiness in retirement, it’s not just about the money.

Moss is a managing partner and chief investment strategist for Capital Investment Advisors in Atlanta.
