HOBBIES ARE GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

Do you have a hobby? Hobbies can give meaning and purpose to your life in retirement. As Robert Putnam points out in his book, Bowling Alone, it’s easy to discount the importance of hobbies and social engagements. Putnam details the widespread decline in civic engagement, from PTA memberships to neighborhood potlucks and bowling leagues. Over a couple of generations, Americans have misplaced the concept of free time.

WHY WE ENJOY OUR HOBBIES

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a hobby as “a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation, engaged in especially for relaxation.” Hobbies include anything from playing a musical instrument to gardening, bird watching or sewing. A hobby is a way of focusing on something you enjoy just for the sake of that enjoyment. It may also be a way to clear your mental palette. You could be stressed out by a situation at work or the challenges of raising children and need an escape.

ELDER LAW ATTORNEYS WORK WITH PEOPLE OF ALL AGES


When hiring an attorney, it is best to hire someone who regularly handles matters in the area of concern in your particular case or situation. Make sure your attorney knows enough about the other fields to question whether the actions being taken may affect other areas of concern. For example, if you are preparing a new will, it is important your estate planning attorney knows enough about Medicaid to ascertain whether it is an issue regarding a spouse or a beneficiary.


Once you decide to hire an attorney, make sure your arrangement is in writing. This can be an engagement letter or a formal contract stating what services the attorney will perform for you and what the fee and payment arrangement will be. Make sure to take the time to understand the process and the costs and have open communication with your attorney so it is a positive experience for all parties.
