Retirement comes with it a lot of free time. But in order to maximize your health and happiness in the golden years, start planning how you want to fill those holes in your schedule.

Whether you’re already retired or not, you probably know two types of retirees. Some of them have never had so much fun. They embrace the freedom of their senior years with both hands. Their days are so full of meaningful activities that they joke “I don’t know how I ever had time to work.” Others, though, hang up their work clothes one Friday and then seem to face the remaining years of their live like a blank page. What next, they seem to ask? What am I supposed to do with all this time?
