When I first retired, almost ten years ago, someone said "try to put something on your calendar every day, even if you decide not to do it. A lunch out, a certain task."
Wait a minute? Wasn't the point of retirement to retire? To read those books, take those walks, go shopping on a work day?

So, while I've always tried to have something fun on the calendar, there were many empty pages. Now I look at it and wish I had a few of those empty pages back!
