I have actually started looking into my genealogy and I finding more about my family every day. It is great to see where you come from and you are able to share this with the rest of you family. Online resources can tap into the side of family you would have never been able to find on your own.

Travel

The word travel often strikes the thought of an expensive trip, but it does not have to be that way. For seniors who are on a limited budget, weekend trips and short vacations are a great option. There are even travel resources that set up a wonderful trip for you at a low cost. Expand your horizons and take a fun trip with some of your friends or family.

The Internet

Internet browsers are getting easier to use as the years progress. The iPad makes it extremely useful for senior citizens to browse the Internet as well. Once seniors start to use the Internet they often fall in love with it. They realize how much information is available to them at their fingertips. They are also beginning to join social media groups at an extremely fast growing rate.

Art and Music

The arts have always been a classic hobby for seniors. It is a way to express themselves in ways they never had time for before now. These activities include painting, learning an instrument, sculpting or writing can often unlock something they never knew they had before. Remember that it is never too late to do what you really enjoy.

The hobbies above are very entertaining and I hope that you will attempt each of these because it is very important to keep you mind and body active.
