“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.” – George Bernard Shaw

You can make your retirement the grandest of all life’s adventures!

Having fun is the most natural human experience, and you are always more fulfilled when you pursue enjoyment in your life. When you play, you feel a childlike freedom and joy that really ignites your enthusiasm for life.
It is never too late to engage in activities that bring you happiness – it could be a hobby, belonging to a society or organisation, or travel – but it is important to pursue your passions and enjoy your life in retirement.

Travel is one of the great pleasures that most retired people want to explore, but it need not be purely for leisure; it can provide adventure, inspiration, personal fulfilment, education and much more. Your reason for travel can vary each time – you could study famous works of art one year, visiting great architectural marvels of the world the next. Whether you are travelling locally or internationally, in 5-star luxury or on a budget, travel can enhance your retirement significantly. It provides stimulation, freshness and pleasure not encountered in your everyday routine.

Retirement gives you the freedom to discover what gives you immense pleasure; once you know that, actively include those things in your life that contribute to this.
