Synopsis
After a lifetime of getting up at 7.30am, starting work at 8.30am and returning home in the evening, too tired and stresses out to do anything but watch television, most people look forward to reducing their workload at around 60 years and to putting their feet up and retiring at 65 years. Why then do so many of them fill the doctors' surgeries complaining of aches and pains, mood swings and insomnia after they retire? Why do so many happily married couples suddenly feel the starin of living together for 24 hours a day? Why does the 'third age' fail to be a time of fulfilment and pleasure? Often, after years of eagerly ticking off the days to retirement, when it actually arrives, it proves to be more stressful than going to work. Instead of bringing the anticipated halcyon days it becomes like a succession of rainy Sunday afternoons. This book does not attampt to provide a recipe for happy retirement. There can be no universal panacea. Its objective is to point out the pitfalls that await the unwary, to warn of the difficulties involved in making the transition from work to retirement, and to provide advice on how to obtain the first prerequisite of a happy retirement; a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. So if you want to know just how to strike the right balance between the freedom of retirement, the ongoing demands of family life, and the conflicting welter of information churned out by the media, this iis the book for you. From recognising the effects of ageing, to dealing with the legal implications that come hand in hand with advancing years, Life Begins At offers a wide variety of informative hints and tips to help keep you young at heart.
