Maintaining mental and physical health depends on our daily activities. Retirement should not mean a life of sedentary days. A great way to not only maintain mental health but give back to the community as well is to volunteer.
You don't have to be a MVP to coach a little league or have a doctorate to help tutor English, the only requirement of volunteering is the willingness to help others. There are opportunities that can use what you already love doing or have a passion for to be a part of the community. A good place to start is by visiting: www.volunteermatch.org
Using the search option you can locate volunteer opportunities in your area and by the type of activity you are interested in. You have earned your retirement through hard work and life lessons, what an awesome chance to share your knowledge with others while maintaining your own health.
