Let’s face it: being retired can be boring after a while. After you’ve stopped working, the days can start to run together if you aren’t out experiencing new things. Here’s a list of things that you can do during retirement to experience the “recess years” of your life.
1. Travel. If it’s within your budget, try and get out of town for a while. Whether it’s the other side of your state or the other side of the world. Sometime experiencing new towns and cultures can do wonders for you and make you so much happier & certainly less bored!
2. Get a part time job. If you’re not the type of person to stop working completely, or if you’d just like somewhere to go every day, get a part time job at a place that you love. This cannot only give you more income, but it will also give you a little bit of a routine to adhere to.
3. Volunteer. We all want to be able to volunteer, but most of us are way too busy to schedule it in. Spend your new free time volunteering at the local soup kitchen or animal shelter. Volunteering will not only make you feel great about helping your community, but it will also give you something to do that is productive!
4. Go back to school or take classes. Whether you haven’t yet gotten your diploma or degree, or you would like to take an art class for fun, many colleges often offer discounts to retirees who take classes through them.
Retirement isn’t always easy, especially if you have all or part of your net-egg invested on the risky stock market. On-going fees and commissions along with the risk and corruption that exists within the financial industry could cost you a great deal of your retirement savings and that’s money that you cannot make up if you’re already in retirement and not working. It’s enough to keep you awake at night!
