So you have resigned. Congratulations! Do you have a “BUCKET list”? Well, what are you waiting for?
There are so many things you can do to get excited about. Have you considered work, leisure activities, volunteering, exercise, travel or making a new e-companion? These are not far-reaching ideas, but rather, they should get the juices flowing. Stop, get a dark cushion, some tea and how about we begin that list?
So while your money related and living courses of action might have been arranged, did you take the time to consider how you would use your free time? Here are a few ideas to consider.
1. Travel is a decent approach to invest your time in. Numerous individuals wish to accomplish a greater amount of it when retired; regardless you need to make arrangements with your companions. You might find that you are voyaging 2, 4 or 6 weeks a year. That still leaves a lot of available time. Time is a gift.
2. Work might be an answer. Not inexorably your “old” occupation that you might have abhorred. Take what you loved from you old employment and orchestrate it into a part time job. Try not to make it about cash. Let it be about the satisfaction or purpose. Give it a chance to be enjoyable!
3. Create your own job. Pick one of your interests and commit more time to it. Appreciate it. Does it cost you cash? Can you make a buck at it? Will it help you save money? Case in point, a soccer aficionado retires and becomes a coach. He may get little or no pay for it, but he is still active in the game that he enjoys.
4. Why not volunteer? Whether its a soccer team, public school, or healing center, you might discover a spot that needs someone like you. How satisfying it is to be needed.
5. Dust off your bicycle. Take a ride around the neighborhood! Practice yoga. Climb a mountain. Check with your physician first of course!. You don’t have to beat any world records, yet soon enough you may be setting some individual bests…
6. Cash is the thing that a great many people worry about. With less coming in, retirement can be especially unpleasant. We find that on the off chance that you are doing what you need to do, with less cash, you can downsize and still appreciate what you have.
7. Make new friends. Loneliness by far is probably the biggest thing seniors face. Making new friends can be exciting. With technology, it is much easier to do then in the past. Check out Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter to name a few. Learn, like and share your thoughts. There are some really cool people out there. But remember, it doesn’t matter how old you are, always look both ways before crossing the street. Watch out for the whackos!
