This thesis is about how older people should change their lifestyle after retirement. The main content of this thesis points out the importance of leisure and how it has evolved over time. The human population is steadily aging hence the increasing numbers of older adults who are more prone to falling in unfavorable environments, relative to younger people. Leisure activities can therefore be used as a preventive method for the aforementioned likelihood, as well as to improve the physical and mental health of the elderly. The researchers aim to encourage older adults to enjoy nature and the environment as form of stress relief and socialization, pursuant to well-being. Loneliness and social isolation are among the most common problems faced by older adults worldwide. About 35% of elderly people suffer from loneliness, which can lead to serious health consequences. There has been a notable lack of discussion on this particular problem, as well as a shortage of projects available to remedy the same.
Keywords: Elderly, leisure, recreation, physical activity, present, and future.
