Releasing Stress and Anxiety - Post Retirement

Last Update: February 21, 2020

I am unsure how many of the members are 55+ years old, if you are not one of them, you may wish to skip this post.

I have been volunteering at our local Elder College program for many years and have presented courses on Finances (Accountant hat) to Social Media (IT hat) and now Hypnosis (Hypno hat) ...

Next week, I am presenting a class on Releasing Stress and Anxiety - Post Retirement

As I was preparing my presentation, I realized that I know so many retired people who are struggling under stressful situations. And it made me feel so thankful, that I am able to help them release the stress and live more peaceful and happy lives.

If you are in this situation ... reach out for help, locally or online ...

Best wishes ...

I am 57 and retiring from teaching in a little over a year. In addition to building an income with affiliate marketing, I can't wait to have the time to volunteer and pursue hobbies that are meaningful to me.

I do not understand the mentality of sitting on the couch, unless you're writing a good post.

Leaving a job is just that...it's just a job, there is so much more to life. :-)

Hi Wendy ... a very positive approach to retirement ... creating a separation between job and your personal life is so important!
Best wishes as you pursue your hobbies and volunteering ... enjoy every minute!

It is true that for some people who have reached retirement is a big leap into the unknown. The simple fact of not getting up in the morning to do what they have been doing for many years can cause them tremendous anxiety. It is good for them to have brought them answers.

Hi Ingrid, i approach retirement now as another challenge in life to contribute and accomplish what I want, rather than what my employer wants!

I still get up at the same time, and my agenda is as full or fuller than when I was working ...

Anxiety comes largely from a lack of control ... or unrealized expectations of ourselves or others.

Modifying our expectations can release a lot of anxiety ... the action of acknowledging and accepting what has happened in the past, and setting new realistic goals for the future can work wonders!

We are older and stressed about some stuff but not as much as some. I think finances is a major stressor. Good post.

I find it is Finances and Health ... both serious and sometimes difficult to control and resolve.
Thanks for the comment, Jim

Finances are ALWAYS a major stressor, Jim!

💥💥💥 Yes, unfortunately it is one of those areas of our life, that is least secure, and therefore, as we have little direct control it hits us like a brick, when things go wrong!

So, in effect, Allan, we are never truly retired, perhaps just a little more relaxed!😎👍

Although I’m 55+ I am still very active and I don’t see retirement as my next goal post anywhere soon. I am interested to know from which aspect you will tackle this subject to retirees

Mariella ... after reading your profile, I am quite certain you will be more like me ... 70+ and still very active!

This is a single, two-hour session, so it will be quite limited ... essentially it is an introductory session, using visualization and indirect suggestions to identify and release anxiety and stress.

I anchor the wonderful feelings, so they can return to this calm state at any time, should the need arise!

Pretty amazing stuff ... 💖
