Retirement Activities

I have found that activities is what makes retirement work.

Keep active is the key to a successful retirement and will keep you both physically in good condition and engaged mentally and socially.

In this category I will be blogging about retirement activities that are fun and accessible. I am on the Active Committee of our Active Adult Center and have enjoyed many of the activities that is offered there. I believe senior centers are a great activity resource.   I love playing Bocce ball a couple of times every week. I liked participated in the Senior Games last year. I also love traveling and taking cruises. I enjoyed attending with friends the Petit LeMans Road Race every year for the last five years.  My wife and I like taking dance classes and weekly attending our dance club for dancing and socialization.  I love learning new things and I believe even the Internet has helped me stay abreast of current events and explore new things. We love meeting with friends and going out to dinner.  I attended the AARP convention last year and met a lot of new people and was exposed to a lot of great ideas to keep active. I love meet with friends for parties and special events. I participated in my towns Founders Day Parade this year. I like reading books. I collect medals from the nineteenth century world’s fairs and expositions and started a web site to catalog my collection. My wife and I took a cooking class. Going to the gym 3 times a week is an important way to keep active and in shape.  In my spare time I maintain this web site and 5 others about retirement.

I plan to keep doing all of the above and more this year as I will to keep active in my retirement.

I will be sharing the activities that I am doing in retirement right here along with photos. I will be searching for new activities and resources that will be useful to us to stay active. I would comments from you about what you are doing to stay active retirement.
