What To Do In Retirement: 105 Hobbies To Try!

Looking for things to do when you retire? Search no further!



What do you do when you suddenly have more time on your hands? You’ve worked for years, then you’re wondering how to fill the hours.


Of course, the global COVID-19 pandemic has focused many people’s minds on this. But for retired people, this is a situation that is lived out daily.


Many of us look forward to retirement, to a time when we can relax, and enjoy time with family and friends. But retirement can also be a shock to the system.


You maybe find you’ve got nothing particularly important to do. You might feel you have lost your purpose in life. Perhaps you’re feeling lonely.


We’re here to help. You probably need to start a hobby in retirement. And we’ve got plenty of suggestions.


At Scalesceugh Hall & Villas, our homeowners are keen to engage with each other as much as possible, it’s a friendly retirement community and activities are planned, discussed and arranged as a social group.


But retired people can be of different ages and with very different physical and mental abilities, and different reasons for wanting to fill their time.


So here’s our Ultimate Retirement Hobbies List to suggest activities for everyone…


It covers Hobbies For Retired Men, Hobbies For Retired Women, and Hobbies For Retired Couples.


It also includes suggestions for Hobbies to Meet People, Unusual Hobbies For Seniors, and even Retirement Hobbies That Make Money. Well, why not?


It covers Indoor Hobbies, it covers Outdoor Hobbies.


So take a look down the Retirement Hobbies List and see if anything inspires you. It’s a comprehensive list so something should appeal!


Then search the internet, your local newspaper, social media or other guide to find out how you can get started.
