With every new year comes the pressure to set goals and work towards improving ourselves and life as we know it. As a village that encourages the start of a new adventure each and every day, we’d love nothing more than for you to begin 2024 the right way. Here are four resolutions you might want to add to your list if you’re retiring soon or have already retired.
Focus on physical health by making regular exercise part of your routine. This could include activities like walking, swimming, or joining fitness classes. Luckily at Renishaw Hills, there’s no shortage of activities to keep you fit and healthy. Next, you should prioritise a balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Consider consulting with a nutritionist to make sure you’re meeting your specific dietary needs and supplementing if there’s anything you’re lacking.
Now is the perfect time to review and update your financial plan to ensure your retirement savings align with your current needs and future goals. Why not consult with a financial advisor to explore investment options, budgeting strategies, and ways to maximise your retirement income? Whilst you’re at it, consider whether or not now’s the right time to downsize or move into a gated lifestyle village that offers the home types and facilities to make every day a joy.
Invest in the relationships that matter
Whether it’s friends or family, make 2024 the year of closeness with the ones who matter most. Why not reconnect with old friends or make new ones? Attend local events, gatherings, or even use technology to connect with friends and family members who may be far away. This will go a long way to preventing the loneliness often associated with retiring. At Renishaw Hills, our welcoming community is ready to embrace you with open arms making a home within our village more than just a property. It’s a chance to join our family.
Do more. Learn more!
2024 should be the year of “yes!” Dedicate time to activities you are passionate about or explore new hobbies and interests. This could include learning to play a musical instrument, taking up painting, or participating in educational courses. Make sure you stay mentally active by challenging your brain through puzzles, reading, and games. This will provide mental stimulation and also maintain cognitive function, which is crucial during ageing.
