Yes. You now have the luxury of working because you enjoy what you're doing instead of working to pay the bills. If working is not an option, finding an activity to occupy for time is essential.
Yes, but i'd choose to a job that fits me well/i am passionate about. this way, work isn't just work anymore!
Work does not just contribute money. It is also a source of meaning for some people. In 2-factor job satisfaction literature. External factors like pay and benefits are considered as "hygiene factors". One will not be dissatisfied if the amount of it is sufficient. On the other hand, there are the so-called motivators like job meaning. With sufficient job meaning, one would most likely continue to stay at work. Meaning could derive from many different factors. e.g. nature of work (e.g. doctors), able to contribute their wisdom despite older age (e.g. professors). For me, I would try to stay in work force as long as I could if I believe I could continue to contribute my expertise.
