Warrington, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 09, 2010 -- Following busy working lives, a growing number of retirees are faced with questions on how they meaningfully lead their lives post retirement.
The choices are not the same as the previous generation, some are better off, have retired earlier and have better health and physical abilities - these are not the grannies and granddads that once were. This generation are setting new standards for what an active retirement is all about.
Livinganactiveretirement.com, a site by retired people for retired people, combines in one place a wealth of opportunities and ideas for an active and fulfilling retirement. As well as common retirement interests such as gardening and golf, the site explores a whole variety of hobbies that may not typically be associated with retirement such as DIY, photography, fitness and socialising with friends.
Technical abilities can help open up potential new interests. The site's technology section seeks to demystify helpful technological advances to allow the readers to make the most of the opportunities available to them including opening an email account and exploring the internet.
