I have no concern right now, but my son who retired from the military two yrs ago just started a part-time job. Today he told me they also just hired an 80 yr old man, widowed, who said he is bored and took a full-time security job for the firm that hired my sonZ

Work is one way of staying engaged in the world. Boredom can lead to bad habits at any age!!

Hello, all! Here we are, in between the Ides of March and St. Patrick's Day. What do you want to discuss today? I have something prepared, but something happened yesterday that knocked the wind out of my sails. A bit personal, but suffice to say that I'm still in a bit of shock over it and not feeling very connected to my highest power today. No, I'm not ill...someone in the family decided to take their leave from planet earth, and it's left a hole in my heart.

Happy Tuesday, Widso World! Dr. Retirement is here for today's live session. I don't have a topic for the day, so it will just be whatever it is you want to talk about. If nothing, then perhaps it's just this post today. It was a tough week emotionally with the passing of two dear friends, both too young. One by choice and one by illness. Such a hollow feeling...

Two weeks ago, we started on the topic of Loneliness and I shared parts of an excellent online article about it. Please look at the threads for the last two weeks for what I already posted. Continuing on with what we can do while still staying somewhat distanced from others: Family & Friends Can you think of any out-of-the-box ways to stay in contact with friends and family? If you are comfortable using technology, there are numerous ways you can stay in touch. If you prefer more traditional ways of communicating, there are still options for you. Below are some ideas to stay in touch with your loved ones. • Send a handwritten letter or postcard • Call someone on the telephone (particularly on days you are feeling lonely) • Place calls using video chat services like Facetime or Zoom • Post on social media or respond to other's posts on social media • Stay in touch by texting or instant messenger

Whoops! That was from an old file I use for preparing content -- it ran before! But still, it's good info. Here's something new: From: https://www.nhs.uk/oneyou/every-mind-matters/coping-loneliness-during-coronavirus-outbreak/# "If you're feeling lonely at the moment, the following tips can help. Different things work for different people, so try to find what suits you, and seek further support if you feel you need it. 1. Explore ways to spend time together When you are staying at home, you can still spend time with others. There are lots of ways to reach out to friends and family without having to meet in person. Chatting on the phone, video-calling and using social media can remind you that you’re not alone. Lots of people are doing things together online, like watching films, playing Scrabble or having dinner. You could join one of the many online clubs and virtual social events taking place, and invite your friends and family to take part too."

“2. Be more social and check in regularly Creating a regular routine of checking in with others and being more sociable can be good, as it can make it easier to reach out at the time you feel lonely. You could try messaging old friends or colleagues on social media or text someone you have not spoken to for a while. Or set up a group chat on WhatsApp or Messenger if you prefer to talk with a few people at the same time. Most of us love hearing from people we have lost contact with – and that's especially true now. It may also encourage them to contact you more, or you could ask if it's OK to have a regular check-in.”

Happy Tuesday! What a week it's been for me. Friday I got my first ever sciatica attack and I've been flat on my back ever since most of the time. I'm here today as always, but won't be engaging much, as I can't sit at my desk and computer. Anything you need to discuss today?
