Tips for people who have crossed 65 years of age. What to do to paint your life with new colors.
So happy you are retired, live in a big house, take care of grandchildren going to buy dishes in bulk for an upcoming wedding. What else could you ask for? And then you thought… In fact, there are many things that you can ask. Age is not a barrier to new Hobbies and activities.
If you are older than 65 years, you have enough time to be involved in activities that were previously inaccessible. When you were young, not enough time, money or just energy, and now it’s time to take care of themselves. For people of your age there are so many opportunities that you yourself can not imagine!
Someone will call them a hobby for older people or much better to say hobby for an elderly person, but it’s a hobby for those who are just more Mature:
Let’s start with sports. Your doctor has forbidden you to engage in any sport, including Golf and chess? It’s never too late to learn to play new games or improve your skills in your favorite list. If you are in good physical shape, go to the competition. Basketball, football, martial arts – pick what you like. You will not notice that you are becoming more active and join the athletes in training. But if your muscles are already long covered with dust, consider a less active games such as table tennis, Golf, swimming, Cycling and so on. Don’t be lazy, everything is in your hands. For the elderly, physical fitness is VERY important.
Alternatively, you can start to play games for the mind. Chess, poker and Board games are a wonderful way to stretch your brain. Most of them are family games, so this is another chance to entertain the relatives regularly and have fun.
Let your legs will be active. Walk every day in the Park – a great way to keep yourself healthy and fit. Morning or evening walk are very useful for shapes and feelings. You can combine walking with other activities such as photography or treasure hunting (participation in various quest games).
Another interesting idea – why don’t you go for courses? There are many courses (including free) that are interesting to talk about architecture, cooking, sculpture, art, acting, etc. I Think everyone can find something he likes. Just visit some lessons and surprise your children and grandchildren a new specialty. Or sign up for master classes in acting and then professionally read your grandchildren a story. Sources of self-improvement is endless.
When we are young there is never enough time to travel. So think of it now. Imagine that you can go to any country, at any time, you don’t have to go back to work or pick up their children from school. Only you and amazing culture of another country. Older people are great travelers, they manage to find hundreds of hidden gems that are usually in a hurry, are missed by other travelers.
Do you love fishing? Older men often choose fishing, since it allows them to get away from the bustling city life. All the trouble is gone, leaving only you and nature.
The moral of this story is that life doesn’t end when your head coated silver. This is the most opportune time that you can devote to yourself.
