Working Toward Health Benefits!

Transitioning from a working adult to a retiree can often be an emotional transition. If you are looking to battle boredom or earn some extra cash without bringing too much stress into your life, you may consider a part-time job. There are a variety of options to help retirees continue to live active lives. Some show working part-time may help retirees live healthier lifestyles.

Sharpen the Mind

Seniors who shift from a full to part-time job are more likely to continue their daily functions than full-time retirees. Working part-time gives you a sense of purpose and allows you to keep active while doing things that you enjoy.

Having a part-time job increases your ability to carry on physical and mental activities throughout the day, while also expanding critical thinking skills. Abruptly switching from full employment to retirement can actually be detrimental to your health, because the mind and body cannot adjust to drastic change in such a short amount of time.

If you’re in search of a part-time job, here are some fun and easy options.

  • Blogger: You choose the topics to blog about, the hours you work, and the information you post. This is a great way to get creative and share your thoughts to a wide range of people. 
  • Coach or referee: Coaching is the perfect way to make some extra cash while mentoring youths and being involved in a sport you enjoy.     
  • Substitute teacher: Subbing is a great way to spread your knowledge and spend time enhancing others’ lives. 
  • Tour guide: This job allows you to take beautiful walks while visiting historic monuments and sharing your knowledge with a group of fascinated tourists.
