Or more grandiose – travelling the world, moving house, buying a dream car, or indulging an interest in a way you’ve never had time to do before.

At the same time, you have to be realistic. This is not a time to rush headlong into anything. It is a time for careful planning within the boundaries of health, finance, and an honest assessment of what is possible.
