Retirement doesn’t mean you stop learning about the world around you; it just means you have to work harder to learn about it. When you’re no longer working, your mind doesn’t stop learning… it just learns at a slower pace. Keep that mind of yours sharp by challenging it with something new every day.
Consider picking up a paint brush, crayons, colored pencils, and sketch designs or pictures just for fun. Write poems, short stories, or letters to old friends and family that you have not seen or heard from in awhile. If you’re in the mood for something creative, consider just having a cool glass of ice tea with a neighbor. The options are endless!
