Everyone in the world has a favorite hobby. It’s very common when you first meet someone, one of the questions you ask is “what’s your favorite hobby?” or “what do you do in your free time?” Some people like photography, some like writing, others like reading a good book. What about Baby Boomers? What are the hobbies that interest them? Are their interests different from those of other generations such as Millennials? The insightful Booms Day Prepping panelists join together to discuss their own favorite pastime. Let’s find out what do they love to do during their free time.
A lot of Baby Boomers don’t like terms “senior” or “elderly.” It’s probably because ageing is associated with some undesirable aspects such as declining health, loss of independence, boredom and loneliness. So whether it’s positive or negative is a matter of the individual’s own emotional intelligence. During their younger days, Baby Boomers were considered to be the most productive and hard working generation the world has ever seen. They built up good careers for themselves and raised their children very well. Now Baby Boomers are entering their third stage of life which is retirement but despite that they continue to encounter many new and amazing experiences. What are the aspects involved in ageing? Is age really just a number? These are some of the questions that the Booms Day Prepping panelists are going to answer this podcast.
Baby Boomers are the 76 million people born between 1946 and 1964. This is the generation that was born after World War II, the deadliest conflict in history.

Now the oldest Baby Boomers have already entered retirement while the younger ones who are still working are preparing for it.

Episode 12 – Differences and Similarities Among Generations: Greatest, Baby Boomers, Silent, X and Y, Millennials
How do you interpret a generation and what does your generation mean to you? Dr. Drew Dwyer outlines them: On top of the hierarchy is the Greatest Generation, the people aged between 92 and older. Those of the Greatest Generation grew up during the Great Depression and many fought in World War II. They are also known as the GI Joe Generation. Next is the Silent Generation, people aged 72 to 92. These people were born during the Great Depression. The Baby Boomer Generation, the generation that was born after the Second World War are those aged 52 to 72. We also have the X Generation, then we have the Y and Z Generation which are grouped as a generational cohort called the “Millennial.” Millennials were born between 1980 and 1994, this generation is marked by an increased use of digital technologies, media and communications.
“When we talk about generations, it helps us to isolate groups of people in society that are having a push and pull impact on the way society is developing and there’s always a reason why this occurs. As I said for the older generations, it was war, it was moon travel, it was the breakthrough technologies. For the Baby Boomers, it was the breaking of the molds of the Older generations. For the new ones, you only have to step back and look into the crystal globe to see the concept of working together, loving each other and being loving and getting along together has been throughout every single generation. It’s just at the moment seems to be the major factor of concern in today’s society.” – Dr. Drew Dwyer
