According to psychologists, procrastination is a basic human instinct. Dragging our feet on making a change often comes from a fear of the unknown, anxiety or perceived lack of control of the outcome. We are all guilty of procrastinating one thing or another, but the fact is in doing so, we are discounting the value in the reward.
When it comes to moving to a senior living community, like The Wellington in Salt Lake City, Utah, most residents and their families can list reasons to push-off the decision to move – timing isn’t right, don’t want to lose independence, not sure I can afford it, etc. However, most residents say (and not long after they move in) that they wish they’d made the move sooner.
So, why should you consider making a move now?
