For some, retirement is the end, for some, it's a new beginning! It's never too late to pursue anything in life. So if you are looking for some interesting hobbies, think about the things that you always wanted to do, but could not because of certain commitments. You will find your answer to the hobby you want to take up. Here are some suggestions.
In fact, if you want to earn some money through your hobby, grow some herbs. These days, with so much emphasis on alternative therapies, this can prove to be quite lucrative!
Why not utilize the free time that you have and do something good for the society? In other words, take up social work. There are so many social issues currently. Take up a cause for which you feel strongly. Environment, underprivileged children, saving endangered animals, etc.
Read some good books, which have been bestsellers in the past few years. Read a few classics too. If there is a library nearby, join it. This way, you will be able to make a social circle with like-minded people, who share your interest in reading.
Take up writing. Write a dairy, pouring all your experiences and journeys in life in it. Since you have had a long life, you must be having quite some stories to tell! Write about your thoughts, feelings, about your professional life, about the important relationships in your life and how they affected you.
To make sure that you stick to this routine, make an exercise buddy who joins you in this always. If you go for a walk in the park, you might find people your age and who get to know you, and may make a few good friends there!
