Our aim is toinvestigate how retirees manage and organise time and the ways these relate to societal rhythms inorder to contribute to theories of retirement and social gerontology. We have combined qualitative(individual interviews, focus group interviews, design games, and drawings) and quantitative(activity monitoring, sleep quality, and health markers) data from 13 participants over the age of65 years, who are research participants in a randomised controlled trial (RCT). Our interdisciplinarydataset allows us to analyse and compare subjective experiences of everyday activities with objectivemeasures of daily activities. The older adults lead busy lives with many diverse activities and usethese to structure their everyday lives in ways resembling the rhythms of the labour market withorganised and busy mornings and loose afternoons and evenings. We discuss how our findings relateto continuity theory and suggest that Lefebvre’s rhythmanalysis allows us to study the retirementrhythms of older adults as part of both biological, social, and societal rhythms. This has practical aswell as conceptual implications.",
