As the first waves of baby boomers begin retiring, they're not content with sitting around playing Bingo or watching TV all day. Instead, they're looking for adventure! They're saying goodbye to traditional senior housing, and instead, are searching for more vibrant communities that complement their active lifestyles. They're traveling, volunteering, exercising, and living the rest of their years to their full potential.
Baby boomers aren't known for being lazy, they're jogging 5k's, hitting up the gym regularly, hiring personal trainers, and overall keeping in great shape. They're way more aware than previous generations that living a healthy lifestyle will allow them to live longer, therefore, baby boomers are making physical activity a top priority.
After retiring, many baby boomers are continuing to work in some capacity. About 51% plan to work full-time, and 28% plan to work part-time. Many choose brand new fields, begin working from home, or do other jobs they've always dreamed of doing. Retirement is seen as a new chance to switch careers entirely, and many are taking advantage of it. Although they continue to work, the main difference is they're switching their focus more on their family, friends, hobbies, and other uplifting activities rather than solely on their careers.
Traveling the World
Baby boomers are curious and want to see the world, and who can blame them? This thirst for a life of adventure and ultimate leisure is finally at their fingertips in retirement.
