Potentially, one third of our lives are spent during our retirement years. Since the average lifespan today is 78, that means you will have anywhere between 10-20 years on average to enjoy leisure activities. Start thinking about what you want to do and go for it. Boredom should not be an option. No matter your physical condition, there will be tons of choices.
Whatever hobbies you choose to do, remember that not only are you allowing your creativity to flourish but you are also improving your mind and overall well-being. Hobbies also give you a great opportunity to meet new people that enjoy doing things you like to do.
Finding a hobby is a chance to take up something you always dreamed of doing and allow your creative side to develop.
We all have hidden talents within us so take some time to discover what some of yours might be. By trying out different ideas you are (or were) interested in learning when you were younger, you will be more likely to discover your hidden creative talents.
