Sit back a little and take time for you. Its so easy when you first
retire to get 'sucked' into commitments and end up over-whelmed. There
seems so much time and new commitments seem small in comparison but they
can easily take over your life and become just as time-consuming as a
full time job and the fun side gets lost.
