What Can You Do in Your Retirement?

So, you've finally done it. After all the years of education and work, you've reached retirement. No more early alarms for work, stressful days at the office or getting stuck in the dreaded rush-hour traffic. Life is good.

But, as the weeks and months go by, you may begin to wonder: "what do I do with myself?" Having so much free time after a life-long busy schedule sounds like the best thing in the world, but it may lead to boredom and even loneliness if you don't manage it right.

What can you do in your retirement? Well that's the million dollar question that I'm going to attempt to answer in today's blog.

What Do I Do Now That I've Retired?

The simple answer is this: find a new hobby. Of course, this is much easier said than done. We've all found ourselves - particularly in the last year - sitting staring at the wall wondering what to possibly do with yourself, and it's easy to spend time doing this without actually solving the problem that you're not sure how to fill your time.

Golf is the classic example of a retirement hobby. Combining sport, socialising and beautiful nature, it is a long-time favourite of those who have reached retirement age. It's an opportunity to make new friends, stay healthy and active, and travel around the country - even the world - and take in courses.

Another sport which has become more and more popular in recent years is cycling. Like golf, this is a sport which allows you to travel - quite literally in this case - as well as spend time in the great outdoors. Although much more physically taxing than golf, across the UK you can find relaxing cycle tracks, which often lead to picturesque locations.

But don't worry! If sport isn't your thing there are plenty other pastimes available. As we go through life, we often find less and less time to do things that we either enjoyed while we were younger or always wanted to get into.

Take reading and listening to music for example. For many adults, listening to music is something you do while stuck in traffic, and reading is often limited to letters you get in the post about rises in bill prices. In your retirement, why not kick back with a good book, or an album you've been meaning to listen to for years? You'll thank yourself later.
