Seniors—Beyond Bored Games

Written by

Maybe you don’t quite consider yourself a senior. After all, having a mailbox that delivers retirement publications, joint supplement offers and estate-planning advice is certainly not the only indicator of age. But perhaps — quite possibly — you are a baby boomer reaching senior status. This is great news! 

There are many reasons why we tend to slow down and become more sedentary with age. It may be due to health problems, weight or pain issues, or worries about falling. Or perhaps you think that exercising simply isn’t for you. But as you grow older, an active lifestyle becomes more important than ever to your health.

Your office has stacks of paperwork that you’ve been meaning to organize and file. There are stories you want to share with your children, but haven’t yet. Your phone, computer and social media accounts are password protected. The storage shed across town has items that you want to go to specific family members and friends, but only you know which ones and where the storage unit is.
