Post-Retirement Activity -
5 Tips for Making the Most Out of Each Day

By Charlotte Demontigny



Imagine waking up to the sound of an alarm clock only to realize you don't have anywhere to go. The first day of retirement can be wonderful and confusing at the same time. While getting up at 4 am has now become a thing of the past, the question you may ask is: Now what? Here are five tips for making the most out of each day in post-retirement.

Avoid the rut. For the first few days you will have to acclimate yourself to a new kind of freedom. Instead of getting up at the crack of dawn, turning over in bed becomes quite attractive, at least for the first week. Afterward, make a list of activities you have always wanted to engage in. It doesn't matter what it is, as long as it gets you up and out of the house.

Exercise and nutrition. Now that you are retired, you may want to start an exercise regimen or rev up the one you may have been on for some time. Join a gym or call a friend and make a commitment to walk at least three days a week. Choose a diet plan, if appropriate, and in combination with an exercise program you can revitalize your mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Redefine your interests. What have you always wanted to do, but never had the opportunity or the time? Traveling, painting, writing, and gardening are just some of the hobbies you would like to turn in to full time skills.

Perhaps you've wanted to attend classes on history, sociology, or the arts. Now you can. Or perhaps you wish to start a home-based business in your area of expertise. Now you can.

Relocate to another city. If you have spent your life visiting different cities in the US or around the world, you may wish to retire to another city. Research, plan, and fulfill the dream of either living in a small college town, a bustling metropolis, or an exotic country. Find the Ideal place to retire; it is within your power to do so.

Exercise the brain. Studies have shown that brain exercises can add 10 years to your cognitive capacity and increase stimulation through such activities as scrabble, puzzles, or focusing on problems that require critical thinking. Just as you continue to exercise the body; it is just as important to exercise the brain.

Retirement poses several options. You can live a sedentary life because, after all, you've worked very hard and deserve the rest; or you can choose to engage in activities which not only improve your lifestyle, but afford you the opportunity to fully explore all of those things you have been interested in during your lifetime.

The latter sounds more exciting, doesn't it? Make the most out of each day - now that you can.
