10 Tips to Make Life Meaningful

By Pamela D Wilson MS, BS/BA, CSA, NCG

After retirement, without a clear reason to get out of bed each day, some older adults lose interest in life. Life seems to lose meaning and the older adult becomes depressed, anxious, and may entertain the idea that life is no longer worth living.

Below are 10 Tips to Make Life Meaningful

1. Research a new hobby or return to participation in a hobby you previously enjoyed
2. Identify ways to make new social connections; investigate local groups and associations of which you might become a member
3. Make a difference—identify a volunteer opportunity and find a cause, a person or something you care deeply about so much that you are willing to give your time
