Health and well-being

The transition from working life to retirement is filled with new opportunities as you suddenly have more time to pursue your interests and be something for others. While you are working, you typically focus on getting work, hobbies and family to all come together. Therefore, it is important that you create your own framework and find a new balance in your life as a retiree.

Pursue your interests - old or new

l

When you leave the labour market, you get the time to resume some of your old interest or find new ones. Pursuing your interests together with others is a good way to stay active.

If you reach out, you can find networks for just about anything you can imagine. For example, sports, winter swimming, museums, travelling and gymnastics. Most likely, you have your own interests, and now is the time to really start pursuing them.

Voluntary work

If you would like to make a difference for others, you might consider becoming a volunteer. Many associations and organisations need more hands, and it is up to you how involved you would like to get.

 
How to get started

The internet is full of offers and various associations for you who can no longer call yourself young. You can find inspiration on these sites:

Prevent signs of aging with a healthy and conscious lifestyle

Even though age leaves its mark, there are a number of factors that are not age-related but can be prevented with a healthy and conscious lifestyle.
Luckily, it is never too late to get started.

Feeling good is largely dependent on what you eat, how much you exercise and not just coming to terms with minor disorders.

Below, you can read more about how to improve your life with physical activity, diet and mental health.
