Retirement Hobbies for an Active Lifestyle
The time has finally come where you are able to sit back, relax and enjoy the freedom of retirement. Your new lifestyle provides time to enjoy hobbies you never had time for as well as discover new ones that have always interested you. Here are a few great retirement hobbies to explore and help keep you active:
Expand your knowledge – If you have always enjoyed learning, now is a great time to continue your education. Many programs are available for 55+ adults and offer college-level classes without the pressure of passing grades or graduation. Many online learning options are also available. This more informal approach to learning can be both mentally stimulating and enriching.
Outside of the classroom, discover creative ways to learn something new like a new dance or a woodworking technique. Through the abundance of activities and clubs at each Robson Resort Community, there are many creative ways to learn something new.
Examples of educational opportunities at the Robson Resort Communities includes the Lifelong Learning programs at PebbleCreek and Robson Ranch Texas. Learn more about each program below.
Join a social group – Now that you have retired, gone are the nine-to-five days and socializing with coworkers, but it is still important to maintain social connections with peers. Social groups and membership organizations such as the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), the American Seniors Association and the 60 Plus Associations are great for maintaining social connections and often have local meetings to attend. The Robson Resort Communities take social connections to a higher level with an abundance of social clubs and groups with varying interests ranging from book, photography and hiking clubs to singles, performing arts and Pickleball clubs. Residents not only maintain social interaction, but also are able to build lasting relationships with neighbors.

Get physical – With more time on your hands, you may find it easier than ever to be physically active. If you enjoy the outdoors, walking, hiking or bicycling gets you out into the fresh air and exploring. Group fitness classes such as dance, yoga or aerobics are also great fitness hobbies.
Retirement living at a Robson Resort Community is convenient and offers many ways to be active and fit.

Volunteer – Volunteering is a very popular hobby for older adults and an incredible act in so many ways. Not only is it good for those served, but there are also tremendous benefits for those who volunteer. These benefits include increased mood, a sense of community and volunteering also helps us stay active. Whether it’s getting involved in the community or local charities, residents at Robson Resort Communities are active in the local communities and support many causes.
Crafts, gardening and fishing may be stereotypical retirement hobbies, but you don’t have to limit yourself to only these.
