Five Fun Things to do When You Retire

Posted: 22 Jan 2017 09:02 PM PST

This post is from FMF contributor Shannon.

As we come to the end of our working lives, the prospect of having some time to ourselves can be exciting. Many look forward to living out their dreams without career or financial constraints. For some however, the end of their career can spell uncertainty and the prospect of having a lot of free time without a strict schedule can be quite daunting. A great way to ensure that your retirement is enjoyable and fulfilling is to take up a new hobby or pastime. Here we'll take a look at some ideas that will help you to relax, meet new people, stay active or possibly gain a new skill.


Age doesn't stop people from staying active and many athletes and enthusiasts are continuing to play well past retirement age. Low impact sports like cycling, cricket and rowing are great for maintaining cardio fitness whilst enjoying a team atmosphere. If you can still handle rough and tumble sports like rugby and football, there are many 'veterans' teams where you can play against similar age groups and still enjoy a decent level of competitiveness. If you're after a slower pace, sports like golf, bowls, swimming and tennis are very popular with retirees and there are hundreds of clubs and groups across the country

Online gaming

Online gaming is a fun pastime that is often not classed as a hobby or pastime. Casino games require mental skills and quick thinking, with mathematics, knowledge of odds and probability and a bit of luck required to be successful. Instead of heading out to an expensive casino, why not try your hand at the selection of great online casino games operators’ offer, playing against people around the world from the comfort of your own home. You can also enjoy a bit of nostalgia by playing online slot machines over the internet, with some excellent bonuses and jackpots on offer that will keep you entertained for hours.

Get creative

Hobbies like knitting, sewing and crocheting are stereotypical hobbies that people take up during their twilight years, but don't be limited. Try something different like 3D design or digital painting. There are also thousands of art clubs that cater especially for amateurs looking to improve their techniques and style, whether it's painting, pencil drawing, watercolour of mixed media. Art galleries are a great place for a bit of inspiration and many offer free entry or reduced tickets for retired people. Or even try writing -- you could earn some extra money while sharing your thoughts.


Now that you don't have to work, it may be tempting to book a five star holiday to a far-flung destination. Although this is a great way to see the world if you have the money, you don't have to leave the US to enjoy a relaxing break or to explore something new. Plan a driving trip to see all the sites in your state or those nearby. Or if you want to go the more "established" route, maybe some time at Disney World is in the cards (lots to do there for all ages).


Giving up your free time to help someone else is very fulfilling. Whether it's helping a local youth group or working in a charity shop, there are hundreds of ways to give something back to those less fortunate. Doing something as simple as chatting with someone who is lonely over the phone can really help them out and it doesn't take a lot of effort or resource to make a huge difference.

Even though having a lot of free time can be boring or possibly even scary for some, staying mentally and physically active is proven to ensure a happy, long life. Try out something new so you can enjoy some of your most important years without stress and worry.
