What Makes Retiring Wonderful

The following will remind you what makes retiring wonderful after many years spent working. Now that you have more time and don't have to return to work, a lot of things become a lot more enjoyable.

Vacation Time

Whether you fancy a road trip or a cruise to the Bahamas, you now have the time to take all those vacations that you have wanted to.

Family Time

You can now spend as much quality time as you want to with friends and family. An enjoyable bonding experience is to share your history with those younger members of the family.

Take Up a Hobby

Now that you have the time for a hobby , why not learn something new. Perhaps it is golf, fly fishing or playing the piano; regardless, you now have the time and incentive to do that.

Better Health

Fewer illnesses, a reduction in stress and more energy may well be a benefit of being retired and not having the stress associated with work or commuting. You may also find that you sleep much better too.

Education and Volunteer Opportunities

Broadening the mind or donating your time to a good cause are great things to do, and now that you have the time, it is much easier to go back to school or volunteer somewhere.


Perhaps it is time to get the most out of your golden years and either rekindle an old romance or meet someone new. Retirement doesn't mean the end of dating.

The more you think about it, the better retirement sounds!

I am busier now that I am retired than I was when in full-time employment!

It is true. There does seem to be some benefits to being retired. It does sound nice.
