Have you ever thought about what you will do when you retire? Or are you waiting for the time to come so that you can find out what you will do? By that time you will have wasted precious time. What you need to do is to work on your hobbies even when you are still working. This way, you will have something to do when you are discharged from work. Some people have found that their hobbies give them some money when they are no longer working.
The importance of hobbies is to keep you busy in your free time. Otherwise, you will be sitting the whole day not knowing what to do. Boredom is what bothers many retirees. Suddenly, they have a whole day of doing nothing. They cannot visit their friends because some of them are still working while others have moved towns.
One of the things you can do as a retiree is to read widely on a topic that is dear to you. Books transport you to places in your mind and remove the boredom that you may have. If you like writing, you can author a book in your old age. Recounting stories of what you used to do will interest people and even earn you money.
There is nothing cut out in concrete. Some retirees fall in love with sports. Others find happiness in traveling. It is up to you to find out that which will keep you active. You don’t want to fall in depression when you realize that your days are empty and lonely.
