Retirement often marks the end of stress and the start of a new life chapter. It’s the time when you finally get to sit back and enjoy the simple things.
But just like anything new, retirement can be a bit daunting if you’re not sure how to spend your time. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best ways to enjoy that next chapter.
Here’s how Friendship at Home members cultivate a fun, worry-free retirement:
Start a Hobby
Maybe you already have one, or maybe you want to try something new, but retirement is the best time to do something fulfilling. Whether it’s cooking, playing the guitar or painting, retirement is the time to do something you love.
Volunteering boosts self-esteem, improves mood and builds community. It’s a great way to do something that leaves you feeling good while enjoying the company of others. Not to mention making the world a better place in the meantime!
Getting out and seeing something new is a good way to make new memories in retirement. The City of Dublin is full of hidden treasures, and with places like Indian Run Falls and a field of giant corn ears, you don’t have to leave your backyard to see incredible sights.
Whatever you do, you’re guaranteed to enjoy it if it’s with people you love. Having a strong social circle is proven to make you happier. Whether reconnecting with old friends, making new ones or meeting a family member for lunch, staying connected is a sure way to make your next chapter the best chapter.
