Bucket List Activities:

The survey revealed that writing a book, taking up skiing, learning a new language, and learning to play an instrument are among the activities on the senior’s bucket list. The respondents believe it’s important to have aspirations, with 52% of them having something to aim for.

Reasons for Embracing Adventure:

The reasons for seniors embracing new experiences include having more spare time, retirement, and not having children living at home. A new perspective and a desire to show people that there are no restrictions once you turn 50 were also among the reasons cited.
