Best Retirement Activities on the Sunshine Coast

After decades of sweat, blood and tears, you’re finally ready to retire. It’s time to live life for yourself instead of others. You may find yourself downsizing, or starting a new hobby - either way, you can keep your possessions safe at Self Storage on the Sunshine Coast. However, what do you do if retirement turns out to be too simple with not a lot to do? 

Continue reading to learn some of the best activities you can do during retirement.

Get a Job

This may come off as ironic, leaving the world of work just to go right back into it. However, retirement is a stage of your life where you can do anything you want, including going back to work. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to get another demanding job. You can opt for a small side gig, such as working at the self storage on the Sunshine Coast or try to start a career of your own.


Volunteering is one of the most common retirement activities among retirees. The options for volunteering is almost limitless. You can mentor children, take part in a small business project, help out in a hospital, help out at self storage on the Sunshine Coast or even go into the Peace Corps. Take some time to think about what you would like to volunteer for and contact them. 

Get Involved with Sport

Just because you’re retired doesn't mean that you have to sit around and do nothing. So, why not take up a sport to keep yourself active and your adrenaline pumping? For example, many golfers don’t have to worry about wasting time as they spend most of it practicing and playing. Many people don’t have enough time to indulge in sports as they have their career to focus on. But once retirement comes along, it’s a whole different story.

And the best part is that there is no shortage of sports either. Here is a small list of the many sports you can choose from:

  • Tennis

  • Biking

  • Boating

  • Fishing

  • Boccie ball

Just remember to take lessons if you decide to do a difficult sport like tennis.

Pick Up a Hobby

Getting a hobby is something you can do while you’re still in the workforce. And although you may not have had enough time to explore it, you do now with your retirement. Your hobby can be anything whether it’s knitting, painting or raising a garden. Picking up a hobby during your time in the world of work can give you something to look forward to during your retirement.

Life can be difficult, but it becomes so much easier when you retire. Without all of that stressful responsibility, you’re finally able to have time to yourself. Whether you choose to get a job, pick up a hobby or put some personal belongings in self storage on the Sunshine Coast, it’s time to see what life really has to offer.
