You might think that when you retire you have to sit at home and watch television or play cards all day at the senior center. This is far from true. There are several activities that you can do alone or with friends that will keep you busy well beyond the time you retire.
Make the Money
Just because you retire doesn’t mean you have to stop working. There might be stipulations on the number of hours or the amount of money you are allowed to make if you are drawing social security, but it doesn’t mean you can’t work at all. Find a small job where you work a few hours a week. This could be at a local grocery store as a cashier or a florist as someone who arranges flowers. A part-time job will keep you busy and interacting with other people. Working may help you to feel fulfilled and avoid depression or feelings that you are not needed.
