  • *** Introduce yourself here ***

    Hi everyone!

    I’m Stuart, and along with Sara we set up Rest Less, just over a year ago. We set up the business based off personal family experience, with a strong desire to help people navigate what can be a hugely exciting, but also difficult transition point in life. We know we haven’t got everything right with the platform yet, but as a small team we’re working hard to improve it all the time and these forums are the latest resource that people have suggested they would find helpful.

    The last year has absolutely flown by, and we’ve really enjoyed building out the resources on Rest Less so we can help more people. We’re just about to pass the 100,000 registered member mark but the real reward has come from speaking to our members, and hearing on a personal level where we’ve managed to help people.

    We’d love you to introduce yourself, how long you’ve been following Rest Less and what you’d love to get from the community!

    Stuart, Sara and the Rest Less team……

      Hi I’m John and took early retirement just as covid lockdowns started…great eh? Anyway the interest groups are great and it’s always good to see what pops up in my daily feed.
      Great idea this and for something that’s only been going for a year, well done 👏

      Helllooo 👋🏻 I am a newcomer to the restless crowd, 51 & 3/4 …. so far enjoying the experience … hermiting in the outbacks of Wiltshire interim, but hopefully relocating to bonny Scotland once this ‘plague’ is over … best wishes to all. Stay safe, stay zany! 🌺

      Hi I’m new and just introducing myself. I live in Stockport and looking forward to meeting people with similar interests. I enjoy going to the gym, riding my mountain bike and walking in rural areas. Particularly like Lyme Park and Macclesfield Forrest as local convenient places.

      Hi, I’m Lynda. I’m an author, living in Oxfordshire. I have mentioned my books on the Book Group page. I did think of joining here under a different name but that seemed silly. I’m happy to discuss writing with anyone who wishes to. I live in a quiet village and when not writing am very addicted to crochet and knitting. I’m not sure how to get on to the local Oxfordshire group though. Or am I on it? Some help there would be appreciated. Thanks and look forward to getting to know people on here. Lynda

        Hi Lynda, On the home page there is a link to Local groups and in there is a ‘find your local group’ option.
        Hope this helps.

      Stuart and co thank you for such a fab group /resource. I came across Rest Less via FB and was curious so joined. I’m super impressed and have found your posting so helpful especially the recent focus on pensions. I’m 56 years old still employed but would love to take early retirement having had a moment of reflection on my life since covid and becoming a grandma for the first time. I lost my best friend 11 months ago and it made me realised truly that the big house , job and material things I have is no more a guarantee to waking up tomorrow and that I’d rather live in truth enjoy my life and be a better person. I’m in the process of relocating having downsize and joining this community I hope will afford me the company of other like minded persons who have either transited or thinking of retirement a change of life style acquiring new hobbies etc.

      Hello, I’ve just joined and recently turned the big 50! what an interesting and informative site. Lots of useful information. 👍🏼

    • Reply by AndrewC

      Hello, I’ve joined because I like the fact that this group is interactive. It is a nice change after being reactive for so long on job sites, which I find tiring and dispiriting. This is much better – lots of ideas and pathways for change!
