When they are seniors, a lot of people start to believe that their lives are practically over and that they can no longer do the things they did during their youth. While some activities – such as skydiving or running marathons – might be off-limits to most seniors, you’ll find you can still keep an active life and engage in a lot of other activities well beyond the age of 65 – and no, we’re definitely not talking about knitting.
Sports are some great activities to consider. Even though you might not be able to play professionally, sports like bowling, soccer, tennis and golf are still favored by most seniors. You can also compete in local competitions and teach younger players a thing or two from your awesome experience.
Consider looking into senior living Denver arts and crafts classes. Online platforms like Etsy exist precisely for that. They will allow you to take your skills to the next level, expressing and selling your work online for added profit, and making sure everyone knows what you can do.
Finally, it’s always a good idea to keep your intellectual side working hard. Taking up an intellectual sport like chess, or becoming a part time coach to continue teaching the skills you’ve learned during your professional career can carry a lot of weight and make you feel purposeful throughout your later years.
