10 Ways To Enjoy Retirement--Arizona 55+Communities

Take a look:

  1. Do something different. Have coffee at a different coffee shop one morning per week, or shop at a different grocery store once a month.  These simple things can make life fun and adventurous.
  2. Practice random acts of kindness. Bake cookies for your neighbor; add money to a parking meter that’s expiring; or buy coffee for a stranger.
  3. Learn a new skill.  Learn how to two-step, fly fish, or paint pottery.  Get out and meet new people while learning new skills.
  4. Write letters. Write to a new or old pen pal or a far away family member. Try different types of fonts or stationary to make it fun.
  5. Research and plan a vacation.  Visit somewhere foreign that you’ve always wanted to or make it a family road trip to a national park.
  6. Get a pet. Dogs and cats are very relaxing.  Just make sure you get the type that is suitable for your lifestyle.
  7. Take a part time job.  Become a store greeter or a librarian.  Make it somewhere you will enjoy going to work at.
  8. Sample new foods from different countries and regions.  Try new recipes.  Try variations of old recipes.
  9. Join a book club. It’s healthy to keep your eyes sharp and exercise your mind while making new friends.
  10. Set and achieve a personal goal.  Hike a new trail, sew a blanket, or learn a new language.

Jack, I have sold many units in 55+ communities, and there are so many events scheduled, they always say they are more busy now than when they worked!

Jack those are good ways to have a meaningful retirement.  For some it is a period that is extremely busy.

Jack, I like this upbeat list.  Many people are bored in retirement and looking for things to do. Your list may spark a lot of ideas.

Thanks to everyone for their comments!  I tried to make it upbeat and uplifting!  After all, who says retirement has to be boring?
