You’ve spent your working years building a reputation as a reliable and responsible employee. The company has profited from your knowledge and dedication. Now it’s time for you to bask in a golden glow as you awaken each day to an empty slate to fill however you wish. Retirement is a great time for many seniors to take advantage of extra time they didn’t have in their working years.
Maintain Your Health
Exercise is a key element to maintaining health. Forget those boring gym calisthenics you giggled about in high school. You’ll reap benefits from joining a dance class, a hiking club, a golf league or grab some friends and take a walk. Speaking of friends, keep up with your contacts and extend opportunities to make new friends. Friends will buoy you up through tough times and you, in turn, will carry them from to time. Healthy relationships are as important to your overall health and physical well-being. Whatever activities you choose to maintain fitness, pick those you enjoy and will have fun doing.
