Aging . . . Some Things to Consider

When making retirement decisions, a stress-free lifestyle is many times at the top of the list. Here’s some ways to help reduce stress and ensure you enjoy your retirement days.

SET realistic expectations for yourself. Don’t try to do too much at once and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Instead, focus on one task at a time and, if needed, factor in rest periods so you don’t become overwhelmed or fatigued.

GIVE yourself time to figure out your new routine – and make new friends. It may be different now, but soon you’ll feel as comfortable – or more so – in your new surroundings as you did in the old.

FIND supportive outlets and activities that bring you joy. Investing your time in something you enjoy can be incredibly therapeutic, whether it’s painting classes, reading or going for morning walks with friends. Having planned activities can foster a calming atmosphere as well as connect you with people
who share similar interests!

PRACTICE positive self-talk. Remind yourself of all the wonderful things about life – from the small moments of joy to the big successes. This can help reduce feelings of anxiety or depression.
