“Retirement: That's when you return from work one day and say, 'Hi, Honey, I'm home—forever.'" –Gene Perret The final stage of retirement is the hardest emotional transition of retirement. It may start 15 years or more after the start of your retirement. It is a time to re-engineer and prioritize simplifying your life.  Perhaps the most difficult aspect of this stage Is the self examination we encountered earlier in our retirement. Who am I, now?" "What is my purpose at this point?" and "Am I still useful in some capacity?"Please join us at Joyful Retirement on Monday at 9am central as we talk about the final stage of retirement.

I'm posting to share that I'm moving my weekly Dr. Retirement Hour from Tuesday to Thursday, and yes, I do plan to have a session on the US Thanksgiving holiday so we can share stories of gratitude and appreciation for the past year and for all the blessings we have in our life. I know that the App says it's Wednesdays at 7PM Eastern, but that's a mistake -- I'll see you on Thursday at the same time! Steven "Shags" Shagrin Dr. Retirement

Are used to being outgoing and love being around people but now I stay in my apartment a lot and visit the people in my apartment building downstairs in the lobby but that even can be traumatic.

One of the biggest roots of stress at Christmas is feeling the need to live up to certain expectations. From the picture-perfect family bliss we see projected in Christmas commercials, to hearing festive cheer and overt marketing every time we walk into a shop, many of us have an unrealistic expectation of what a good Christmas should look like. Please join us at Joyful Retirement Monday 9 am central as we discuss setting expectations and reducing stress.

Self-care is not selfish. “I don’t have time to visit the dentist.” “I’d love to go for a walk, but I have too much work waiting.” Take a breath. When we give ourselves the opportunity to habitually engage in self-care, and prioritize our own emotional and physical well being we open the door to valuing ourselves. We give ourselves the opportunity to learn how we value and perceive ourselves. We boost our self-esteem. Self-care can increase your self-esteem. Join us at Joyful Retirement (soon to be Joyful Living) Monday 9am central time as we discuss self-esteem and self-care as well as more ways to work on self-care.

Although self-care can be something different for everyone it comes down to you taking care of you. According to Vanessa Scotto from the Yinova Center, “The moment we all decide that self-love is healthy and optimal for everyone is the moment we breed a more uplifted and whole society.” This applies to your relationship with everyone around you, your friends and your family. It also applies to your partner. Join us at Joyful Retirement (soon to be Joyful Living) Monday at 9am central time as we discuss self-care and relationships

The act of self-care itself isn’t selfish; it’s necessary for our wellbeing and it takes on many different forms. It's important to assess how you're caring for yourself in several different domains so you can ensure you're caring for your mind, body, and spirit. Join us at Joyful Retirement (soon to be Joyful Living) on Monday morning 9am central time, as we conclude our series on self-care with easy ways to assess our areas of self-care with check-ins and action steps

Are you a procrastinator? If you postpone or delay a task, several tasks or a set of tasks you are a procrastinator. The force that keeps you from following through on what you set out to do is procrastination. Is procrastinating really a big deal? It may not seem like it, but studies have shown procrastination can turn into a serious habit that can easily take over many parts of your life. Lost opportunities, problems at work, late fees, credit issues, and health problems including anxiety and depression can develop or be aggravated by procrastination. Join us at joyful retirement, soon to be joyful living, at 9 am central time on Monday for a discussion on procrastination.

Procrastination is the habit of putting off an important task usually by focusing on more easier, less urgent and more enjoyable activities.

The science is clear: practicing mindfulness meditation is good for you. Just as you can exercise the body for better performance, the mind too can be trained, honed and sharpened. Practicing mindfulness can’t help us control everything that happens to us, but it can change the way we respond to those things. Join us at Joyful Living on Monday at 9 am Central as we talk about meditation and finding a meditation practice to fit your lifestyle.

Simplify Have you ever wanted to simplify your life?

Covid isolation had brought many changes. As we return to work in person and businesses and schools reopen, everyday life will be changed. Shorter tempers, greater anxiety, Covid PTSD, depression, anger, an increased demand for mental health services, and mean or rude behavior are some of the fall out of being in our Covid cave. Join us at Joyful Living at 9 am central time on Monday as we discuss what’s happening and what you can do.

Assertive conversation means expressing your point of view in a way that is clear and direct, while still respecting others. Communicating in an assertive manner can help you to: minimise conflict and control anger. Passivity allows others to decide for you. Aggressiveness  decides for others. Being assertive is you deciding for you. It’s finding balance in the middle. Join us as we talk and learn about assertive conversation at Joyful Living on Monday at 9am central.
