Retirement Social Life and Recreation

Retirement Social Life and Recreation

Your retirement social life and recreation will be dependant on a couple of things.

These are: what you WANT to do and what you have the CAPACITY to do (financially and health-wise).

As such, we have covered the matters concerning health and finances in the following features – Staying Active and Healthy“, Different Retirement Living Options to Consider” and “Comfortable Lifestyle in Retirement“.

Retirement for many means the chance to do things that you weren’t able to do while working.

For instance, have you considered such things as how often you see yourself eating out and whether you want to travel domestically or overseas?

Therefore, if you’re in or approaching retirement, keeping some money aside for your own social life and recreation is important. Reason being, is that social contact is likely to play an important role in your overall well-being.

Sure – there are other matters to consider too, including expenses for living costs, utility bills and health care. Additionally, it may even include potentially helping the kids out with their future financial goals.

That being so, when it comes to your retirement social life and recreation goals, here are some ideas for you:

  • Dining out – restaurants, beach barbecues and picnics
  • Travel – interstate breaks, overseas holidays, road trips, caravanning (as a Grey Warrior?)
  • Entertainment – cinemas, concerts, events, stage shows
  • Sport – golf, tennis or cycling
  • Hobbies – fishing, sailing, photography, drawing, woodwork, painting or computer skills development
  • Volunteering – hospitals, soup kitchens or animal shelters
  • Club associations – Rotary, Probus, Lions, Sporting clubs or Surf Life Saving


Quick Reminder: In a nutshell, make the most of your Senior’s Card and use it for transport concessions and other discounts.
