Your Summer Retirement Bucket-list

The summer serves as a wonderful and sunny time for relaxation.

However, too much r&r can leave one antsy, bored, and anxious. For those of you who are entering or in the middle of retirement, summer is a great time to switch things up and try something new while the weather is beautiful and the days are long.

  • Start a blog

Spending additional time on the computer might seem strange while the weather is nice, but writing works as a great motivator to become more active and try out new things. For example, you could start a fitness blog! Once you get started, you create an obligation to commit to exercising and eating healthy. Inspiring others also helps in inspiring yourself.

This summer, find make finding a new charity a priority on your to-do list. Not only will it make you feel more purposeful, it will also expose you to a new network of like-minded individuals.

For example, hosting a WomenAid party is a fun and exciting way to raise money for a good cause.

  • Join a club

Learning new things doesn’t stop at any age. Try a new creative outlet or learn a new skill like adult ballet, painting, or a language course. It’s been proven that learning new skills lowers the risk of dementia, so why not have fun while working on your cognitive health?

  • Do something outside your comfort zone

This can happen in many different forms. whether it be taking a solo weekend trip, making a new friend, or even trying a new sport. Fear can actually work in your favor, and make you a more confident and well-rounded individual.

  • Start a new family tradition

If you’re lucky, summer is usually a time during the year that family is close-by. Use this special season to establish a new family tradition. This could be doing a weekly Sunday night barbecue, a family movie night, or even a weekend mini golf tournament. It’s much easier to get the entire group together once you commit to a weekly or monthly ritual.

  • Give the house a facelift

Alright, alright. Summer is the time to do everything you procrastinated in the winter. Now is the time to refresh your living space, whether it be putting a new coat of paint in the living room or finally splurging on a new mattress- you will thank yourself by the time chilly autumn rolls around again.

  • Adopt a new pet

If you’ve been playing around with the idea of a new furry family addition, summer is the perfect time to do so! The beautiful weather and extra energy are great reasons to rescue a dog, cat, or any other animal that captures your heart. It’s hard work, but you definitely won’t regret it.
