Exercise your Body, Brain and Soul
If you are retired, but still physically fit and can participate in cardio sports, such as tennis, running, and team games such as soccer, then you probably don't need other physical activities, but you still need to exercise your brain, and sooth your soul after retirement.
Other Sports for Retirees
Golf is played by millions, but there are many other individual and team sports that retired persons can play, regardless of physical condition. Check out lawn bowling, bocce ball, shuffleboard, pickleball, croquet, swimming and aquatic exercises, mini golf, hiking, fitness equipment, weight training, etc. Even take a look at Tai Chi after retiring.
Your Brain and Mind
Games, Puzzles and Brain Teasers
Your brain needs exercise to stay healthy as you age in retirement! Take part in card games (especially ones that make you think, such as bridge), do crossword puzzles and other puzzles such as sudoku, cryptogram puzzles, etc. But if you don't want to think too much, try our Tic-Tac-Toe Game.
Arts, Crafts, Hobbies, and Casual Work
Take up a hobby after retirement. Try analyzing things like horse racing, stock markets (you don't have to bet or invest). Learn a new skill such as computer programming, arts such as drawing, painting, etc. Many retirement and seniors centers offer craft activities, such as stained glass, ceramics, woodworking, metal work, etc. Maybe you should try a part-time job doing something you like after you retire!
Your Soul and Mental Health
Stay Positive to Keep Healthy!
Check out meditation and yoga, and listen to music every day in your retirement. Practice long walks with deep breathing, and don't forget to smell the roses along the way. Look at the good side of any issue, and be optimistic. Retirement Jokes! have a laugh today!!
Volunteer work of all kinds by retirees is rewarding and good for the soul.
Get a pet if you don't have one, particularly dogs, as they need walking (forces exercise) and they offer companionship and devotion for retirees.
If you can afford it, travel is another way to re-energize the brain after retirement.
