I have often heard retirement is a big adjustment. What was the BIG deal?
Now for the first time I am experiencing it up close and personal. My husband retired in June. For a while he was working part time, so I thought the transition to all day at home would go well. Nope! A very active guy suddenly became a couch potato with a constant line up of his favorite shows going non-stop.
What to do? I found out seniors get a joining discount at the YMCA and if you join one you can visit all of them. We are both a little happier since we found a fun thing to do, a weekly relaxing swim.
Social activity for seniors is tremendously important to stay healthy and happy. Find your passion, find a like-minded group. Keep moving and enjoy those years of freedom.
