Summer Fun for Retirees

Summer Fun for Retirees Cornerstone Wealth Management

Embracing an active lifestyle during the golden years is both rewarding and beneficial for overall health. As the summer season unfolds, it offers retirees an opportunity to engage in a variety of activities that not only keep them physically active but also stimulate their minds and foster social connections. Here are six engaging summer activities that you can enjoy.

  1. Gardening: This therapeutic activity is not only a wonderful way to stay physically active but also provides a sense of accomplishment when you see your plants bloom. According to research, gardening can help reduce stress and enhance mood.[1]
  2. Walking: Walking is a simple yet effective exercise that can be easily incorporated into daily routines. It not only strengthens muscles but also improves cardiovascular health. For a change of scenery, you might consider walking in local parks or botanical gardens–there are a lot more places to walk than you think![2]
  3. Bird Watching: This quiet, peaceful activity can be enjoyed from the comfort of one’s backyard or a local park. It’s a great opportunity to admire nature’s beauty and can stimulate cognitive function.[3]
  4. Outdoor Games: Games like horseshoes, croquet, and bocce ball are fun, low-impact activities that can be enjoyed by seniors. They encourage social interaction and a competitive spirit, keeping the mind sharp. They can also be a great activity to do with your grandkids! Most kids love being outside, and staying active can be good for both of you.[4]
  5. Art Projects: Art projects like painting, drawing, or crafting can stimulate creativity and cognitive function. Plus, it’s a therapeutic activity that can help alleviate stress.[5]
  6. Local Events: Attending local events such as farmers’ markets, concerts, or theater productions can provide you with a sense of community and a chance to engage with the folks around you.[6]

 

Incorporating these activities into your summer schedule can help enhance your physical health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life. However, it’s essential to consider your abilities and preferences when choosing activities. Don’t try anything you don’t think you’re ready for! Above all, remember that the goal is to create enjoyable experiences that will make the summer memorable.

Summer is a great time to kick back and relax. So, if you want your summer to be full of these fun and joyful activities instead of stressing about your finances, schedule a call to contact our professionals at Cornerstone Wealth Management for a complimentary review of your situation.
