Baby Boomer Hobbies – Top Four Things Older Americans Love to Do

What Baby Boomer hobbies are your favorite? Perhaps you are involved in arts and crafts. Or maybe you enjoy playing music. Then again, it might be that lazy day by the water or a hardcore day of pumping iron at the gym that is your fancy.

While there’s not a telltale method of determining the most popular baby boomer hobbies and activities, we took the time to cull some research from various web portals. The results were actually slightly astonishing, yet not too far off the beaten path. What follows are the top four we were able to derive from our research.

Hitting the Gym

Of the top baby boomer hobbies out there, we put hitting the gym or getting in some physical exercise near the top of the list. Most Americans over 50 have stated in recent polls that they have more energy and that they feel younger than they ever have. Top hobbies include: tennis, golf, jogging/running, swimming, aerobics, martial arts, yoga and even Iron Man, etching out the top slots in this list.

Volunteering

According to the Harvard School of Public Health/MetLife Foundation, volunteering is one of the more popular Baby Boomer hobbies, but not as popular as it used to be. The generation that came before the Baby Boomers was known as the “greatest generation” because of their civic mindedness. But, the study also said that baby boomers who started volunteering in their early 40s were likely to still be volunteering, which accounts for a lot of ‘boomers’ helping to give back.

Being Waterside

Senior activitiesAccording to an article that was published by Sperazza & Banerjee, being beachside is one of the most popular recreational baby boomer hobbies that exists. The most popular waterside adventures pursued, according to the report, include: beaches, lakes, boating, rafting, cruises, water sports, rivers and fishing. The desire to seek out waterside activities might explain why states like Florida and North Carolina are popular baby boomer hotspots.

Over 50 Dating

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, over 35 percent of boomers are divorced. Considering that baby boomers comprise roughly 70 million Americans, that’s a large number of daters that are on the market. Add to the fact that, thanks to online dating sites and smartphone apps, dating is now easier than ever before, it’s no wonder why more baby boomers are seeking love later in life.

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
