Worrying/anxiety is about the anticipation of an event. Your brain starts asking “what if” too many times, and comes up with a lot of answers it doesn’t like. Even if you think you have a solution, you can’t be sure it will work because your crystal ball is on the fritz. So anxiety is often problem solving — but without the solving. Join us at 9 am central time at Joyful Retirement as we discuss ways to stop worrying. Everyone is invited and your participation will be welcome.

I love retirement. This is when you become independent. No boss or policy telling you what to do. No reacting, unless you want to. Depending on your situation, you might have less resources, but you can do what you want, when you want, with what you have.

For many, worrying is often a way to try to predict what the future has in store-a way to prevent surprises and control the outcome. The problem is, it doesn’t work. It’s not possible to predict all the things that can go wrong and trying to does not make the future more predictable. Join us as we talk about some ways to control worrying and put the power to handle life’s problems back in your hands. Everyone is welcome at Joyful Retirement on Monday 9 am central.

A man who has committed a mistake and doesn’t correct it, is committing another mistake. Confucius I make mistakes everyday. I believed “one size fits all” (big mistake). I didn’t believe “bet ya can’t eat just one” (big mistake). I sent an email meant for one person to “send all” (big mistake). So mistakes happen, but what do you do after you make a mistake? How do you recover? Join us Monday at 9 am central at Joyful Retirement as we talk about the next step.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” Ralph Waldo Emerson Join Us at Joyful Retirement on Monday at 9 am central as we talk about letting go of past mistakes so we can move on.

Setting goals gives us a destination, a path to accomplish things. In order to avoid roadblocks and achieve our goals, we need to set up routines and stick to them. People are creatures of habit, and routines offer a way to promote health and wellness through structure and organization. Having a routine can improve success in meeting our goals and greatly improve your physical and mental health. Join us at Joyful Retirement on Monday morning at 9am central time as we talk about establishing routines.

We all carry emotional baggage. It is different for all of us. It doesn’t matter if you have five big duffle bags of anger, hurt, bitterness, and pain or a clutch of regret and remorse there is a point when this baggage becomes too much, and we realize it is a devastating impact on our relationships. Join us at Joyful Retirement on Monday at 9 am central time as we discuss ways to jettison some baggage.

Forgiveness is essential to getting rid of emotional baggage. Not forgiving and carrying around anger is like hauling around an extra bag all day, carrying stuff that is weighing us down and slowing us on our journey. When we forgive, we let go of the emotional baggage that can keep us back. Forgiveness frees our hearts and minds, and lets us live in peace. Join us at Joyful Retirement on Monday at 9am central as we talk about forgiveness.

Communication problems between people is universal. As a life coach communication is one of the skills I am often asked to help with. Effective communication does not just happen. Anybody can talk, not everybody can communicate effectively. The purpose of communication is to relay information from one person to another in a way that the sender and receiver understand the message. Join us at Joyful Retirement Monday morning at 9am central time as we talk about communication barriers. (From home page go to communities, click on Joyful Retirement, Enter group)
