No matter what age we are, it is important to stay active. That can be just walking once a day, heading to the gym, playing Wii games, or joining a club. If you are in need of some activity ideas, we’ve got you covered!

Clubs

Clubs are a great way to add a bit of structure to your week. They are also a fun time to spend on something you are interested in. Generally we think of book clubs, but clubs can cover almost any topic. Check the local library, as many clubs post fliers there, or head online to find more specific clubs. If you are interested in board games, you’re likely to find someone else in town with the same passion. If you can’t find a group, create your own! Make and post some fliers in community areas to advertise for your club. This is a great way to make new friends and find others who are interested in your favorite things.

Volunteer

Volunteering is a nice way to do something for yourself and others. You are giving back to the community while also staying active and social. Pick an organization that is focused on something you care about. This could be animals, homeless, feeding the hungry, children, and more. Check with those organizations in your area and inquire about volunteer positions. Most of these groups will gladly take your help.

Work

If you find retirement to be a bit boring, maybe you want to find a part time job. Think back to your skills and look for relevant job postings on sites like Craigslist. Maybe you could even create your own business or do some private consulting in your industry.

Exercise

It’s important to exercise at least a few days a week. This could be something as easy as taking a quick walk outside or even getting a gym membership. You can also find many exercises that can be done at home without much equipment. Ask your friends if they want to exercise with you, this will keep you motivated to keep at it. Stay fit and active!
