People of all ages make New Year’s resolutions, but as we age, our wishes and goals change. Some of the most popular resolutions for seniors include reviving old friendships, spending more time with family, and revisiting favorite pastimes such as camping. If you’re still thinking about your resolution, consider adding one of these to the list.

What Are Common New Year’s Resolutions for Seniors?

1. Spend More Time Relaxing

Retired seniors have the luxury of more free time to do the things they enjoy, including hobbies and spending time with friends. Relaxing activities also offer the benefit of lowering your blood pressure and preventing heart disease. Whether it’s joining a book club with friends or trying your hand at gardening, find an activity that helps you relax.

2. Travel More

campingSeniors often have the time and savings to travel, allowing them to visit places they’ve always hoped to go. When picking a destination, don’t forget to consider how you’ll get there. For instance, cruises offer easy travel to places overseas. RVs are an ideal way to travel the United States at your leisure, providing a fun camping experience with all the luxuries of home. No matter how you go, exploring the world offers memories you can cherish and share with others.

3. Cross an Item Off Your Bucket List

Everyone has an activity on their bucket list they wish to complete. Take some time to consider activities that have always piqued your interest. Whether it’s taking art classes, learning to cook a favorite type of cuisine, or writing a novel, make the new year one in which you mark that item off your bucket list.
