A Golden Opportunity: Enriching Your Retirement Years

Are you newly retired? Are you planning to retire soon? While the idea of leaving behind commutes, early mornings, and deadlines might sound enticing, simply kicking back and relaxing isn’t the best approach to retirement. You’ve earned a well-deserved break from the workforce, but it is essential to avoid falling into the trap of doing nothing.

Numerous studies have shown retirement can come with its own set of health risks, particularly when one embraces a lifestyle of doing nothing. Lack of activity can lead to a higher risk of developing chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Doing nothing can also cause seniors to experience depression, boredom, loneliness as well as experience cognitive decline and dementia.

So, what can retirees do to avoid the pitfalls of doing only kicking back and relaxing?

VOLUNTEER! By giving back to others, retirees can enrich their own lives, making their retirement years truly fulfilling and meaningful.
