The Perfect Post Retirement Bucket List!

Updated on July 2, 2016

Wondering What Will You Do After Retirement?

According to data released by the 7th Pay Commission in 2015, out of 3.3 million government employees in India, nearly 29%, i.e. 1 million people, were in the age group of 50-60 years and expected to retire in the next 10 years. According to The Financial Express, nearly 61% of people aged 45 in India want to retire in the next 5 years. Of these, 14% who desired to retire in the coming days had many plans for life after work but were unable to quit their jobs because of financial reasons. This emphasizes the need for better retirement planning in India. To have a comfortable post retirement life, it is very important to begin saving early. This is where a good insurance plan can help. This is your time to enjoy and we have compiled a list of things you should do after retirement.


This should be on top of your list. The world is a beautiful place and we often miss out on its beauty because of our busy schedules. Now that you are done with your working life, taken care of your children's education and paid back your loans (hopefully), it is your time to open the new chapter of your life. Plan a long trip with your life partner and enjoy a nice, lengthy vacation. You never know, you may even want to settle at one of these places. Here is a list of hill stations by Thrillophilia which may make you rethink your retirement plans.

Spend Time with Your Family

You might have not got enough time to spend with your kids because of your job and professional commitments but this could be your opportunity to rebuild that bond. Family Facts termed spending time your family as 'A Wise Investment' and rightly so. It is important to develop a good emotional bond with your kids, since it helps in their academic as well as personal development. Family is not just limited to your children, you may also have grandchildren by now and it is equally important to give them your time. You can also plan family outings with your siblings, just like in your younger days.

Take Up a Sport

We agree that after all those years of hard work, you deserve some rest but it is equally important to stay fit and what can be a better way than taking up a sport. We all have that one sport that we were good at in college. Now you may not want to risk your body parts by playing cricket or football but more sophisticated sports like tennis and golf are good ways to keep yourself occupied. A report by Daily Mail reveals how sports can help you stay away from depression after retirement.

Watch Movies

Just think how many times you stopped your kids from watching movies when they were young because they kill a lot of time. Now, you have all the time in the world to kill. So, take out the finest collection of movies and run a movie marathon. IMDB's movie ratings may help you find the best.

Re-ignite Your Hobbies

Last but not the least, enjoy your life by re-igniting your hobbies. Do whatever your heart wants to do. Singing, dancing, acting, photography, painting, do everything you love. Join a band or a club on the weekends. Secure your future with Birla Sun Life's retirement solution and you don't need to worry about finances. It is your first step towards good retirement planning, so that you can enjoy your hobbies without worrying about your bills.
