life satisfaction Archives - Greenwald and Gerke Real Estate
Are you considering or near that decision to retire from the work force? Today’s retiree is active, vibrant, engaged, and looking to give back. The early retirement years is the time to put the pedal to the metal in terms of increasing your mental and physical activities. Here are a few ways that you can improve your circumstances and maximize life satisfaction during your golden years:
1. Spend More Time with the People that You Love
Now that you don’t have to worry about work, it is the perfect opportunity to spend time with the people that you love. Take trips to visit your grandchildren, plan Sunday dinners with the nearby family members and friends, and look for ways that you can connect with each person in your family. Strong family relationships and deep friendships will bring a deeper sense of satisfaction into your life.
2. Pick Multiple New Activities
Are you getting out to enjoy the beautiful world? Find a hobby that helps you maintain an active lifestyle. Consider options like pickleball (the latest craze sweeping the nation), traveling, cycling, or any other sports activities that you have always wanted to try. If you enjoy artwork or crafts, check the local craft store to find out if they offer sewing, knitting, or flower arrangement classes. Even something as simple as getting out of the house to walk the dog each night can be an effective way to keep your blood pumping and boost your mind.
3. Focus on Your Health
The quality of your health matters and many retirees become more aware of their health because of small aches and pains that start to creep in. If you want to enjoy health and vitality, then you need to make an effort to improve daily habits that impact your health. Plan healthy meals, exercise several times a week and make it a point to keep yourself mentally active each day. To assist in your interactions with the medical profession, we strongly encourage you to think long and hard about adding a medical advocate to your team of professionals.
