Learn something new and start a new hobby
Just because you’re no longer in the workforce doesn’t mean you don’t want to learn new things. Retirement provides the time to explore the things you may not have had time for but definitely felt passionate about. Sign up for in-person classes or take online courses. Keeping engaged helps you to stay sharp mentally and physically.
