Enjoying Your Retirement

Most of us look forward to the day we can retire and spend our days pursuing favorite pastimes. While having the freedom to follow your dreams is nice, it isn’t always enough. Some seniors find themselves struggling to settle into a healthy, productive lifestyle.

Challenge yourself: It’s easy to get stuck in a routine after you retire. Avoid that trap by challenging yourself to learn new things.

Spend time with kids: Children have a way of boosting spirits.

If you don’t have grandchildren or yours live far away, consider volunteering for a local children’s organization.

Find a physician you trust: Having a trusted relationship with a primary care physician is important, you’ll be more likely to visit the doctor on a regular basis and stay on track with health screenings.

Create a bucket list: Do you have dreams of adventures you’ve always wanted to complete? That’s what is known as a bucket list. Take time to formally compose your list. Then make plans to pursue each item.

Connect with peers: Having friends your own age gives you a support network to turn to through the ups and downs of aging.

Find ways to give back: It may be fine to spend a few years living a carefree life, but you’ll likely come to a point where you want more meaningful activity. Many seniors find volunteer work fills this void.
