Summer fun for Actuaries

There are many summer activities that can appeal to actuaries, depending on their interests and preferences.

Shuffle board is not only for retirees! There is nothing like hanging out at the pool with a cocktail with friends. Shuffleboard is a great game for actuaries because it combines skill, strategy and probability in a fun and relaxing way. Actuaries are experts in assessing and managing risk, and shuffleboard requires them to estimate the likelihood of scoring points, hitting opponents’ discs or going out of bounds. Shuffleboard also challenges actuaries to use their analytical and mathematical skills to plan their moves and optimize their outcomes.  Playing shuffleboard might be a tax write off your stay at the hotel as continuing education (not tax advice! Might be a little humor).

Plus, shuffleboard is a social game that allows actuaries to interact with other players, share their insights and enjoy some friendly competition. Shuffleboard is not only a game of chance, but also a game of choice, and actuaries love to make informed and rational decisions.

In fact, playing any games that involve logic, strategy, and problem-solving, such as chess, sudoku, crossword puzzles, or escape rooms while on a hectic European tour is a wonderful way to unwind.  Plus, they can help improve analytical thinking skills by challenging the brain to find patterns, make connections, and apply reasoning.

Reading books or articles while at the beach stimulates curiosity and critical thinking, such as mysteries, science fiction, or non-fiction. These genres can help develop actuaries thinking skills by encouraging the reader to question assumptions, analyze evidence, and draw conclusions.

Exploring nature or visiting museums that showcase natural or cultural phenomena, such as wildlife, plants, art, or history. These activities can help foster analytical thinking skills by inviting the explorer to observe, compare, and interpret different aspects of the world.

These are just some of the possible summer activities that can appeal to actuaries.  Of course, there are many more options that can suit different tastes and budgets. The main idea is to find something that sparks interest and challenges the mind in a fun and engaging way.
