Just retired and wondering how to spend all your newfound free time? If you were employed for the last few decades, it could suddenly feel like your life is now lacking a sense of purpose. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do–from helping people in need to traveling the world–to keep your spirits up. Need inspiration? Here are seven ideas.

Love traveling to new countries and continents and meeting new people? If yes, make sure to learn a new language that can help you immerse yourself in the culture of the place.

Several research studies show that learning a new language can help improve your memory and cognition, no matter what your age is.
