Older Americans Month: Reinvent Yourself!

ShowcaseB_300x250Although Older Americans Month is winding down, we want you to leave this month feeling inspired by reinventing yourself.

By 2029, approximately 20 percent of all Americans will be of the retirement age. So how can you make your life after your career the best it can be? Following your passions and using your skills  is great for your mental health and physical well-being.

The Administration for Community Living has made this informational flyer with tips on how you can best reinvent yourself after your career:

  • Careers after retirement can be rewarding, personally and nancially. Do you have the skills needed for a new venture? If so, update your resume and start looking at job posts. If not, seek out classes and training—online or at a local college.
  • Express yourself through the arts. Learn to paint or draw, or pick up a dancing or acting class. Studies show that the arts can improve brain health.
  • Keep learning! Learn a new language or take a computer class. Have you always wanted to travel? Pursuing a new interest will help keep you happy, healthy, and connected.
  • Consider using your years of experience to serve others by volunteering.
