It is largely determined by how you feel about yourself at any point in time. Many of our problems are caused by ourselves. We may refuse to acknowledge that the years are adding up until, suddenly we are brought up short reality hits home. We may become frightened, perhaps even panicky. Add to that such worries as a substantial loss of income, a possible loss of a loved one, the growing away of the children, and declining health All these happen sooner or later to each of us. The person with a good mental attitude is able to shake them off. He soon recovers, confident in the knowledge that we are all a mixture of good and bad, and knowing that one's well-being depends largely on how one enlarges the good within and controls the bad. Ideally, emotional depression can be -guarded against by attuning oneself to the realities of life after 65 long before one reaches that age. It means coming to grips with the life process. Unless you are willing to do that, you will not enjoy life after 65 to its fullest. A proper mental attitude is just as important as good physical health They go together, each dependent on the other. Begin today, if you haven't already, to face your problems and deal with them maturely and constructively. You'll be pleasantly surprised to find how enjoyable life can be at any age if you clear away the dark clouds of vague misconceptions and fears. Misfortune, disappoint- ments or disillusion- ment may occur at any age. Fortunately, as we mature, we develop inner resources which help us cope with them.

They supply the fuel for our hopes and desires and, under control, they will not undermine otherwise good health. Unfortunately, too many of us scoff at the idea of trying to control the emotions of a person who has lived with them out in the open for 40, 50 or 60 years For those who think this way, there are always tranquilizers, but dependence on such medicated pacifiers is not the real solution. We try to control ana manage our physical health, why not our emotional health? We all face problems. We all feel dissatisfaction with the way things go from time to time. The key lies in how we tackle the problems, and whether or not we accept those caused by ourselves.or try to blame them on others Certain problems become more important as we grow older. These are brought about by changes which can be a source of worry, insecurity, a fear that life will never by the same again. There are changes in our physical being. Changes in our adult roles. Man's work makes him feel useful. He has the respect of colleagues for a job well-done. A woman feels useful in raising her family and maintaining her home. But eventually the man retires and the mother's children grow up and leave home. Man and woman feel unwanted, useless. There are changes in living arrangements. Many may find it necessary to give up their home altogether. This often means giving up independence and privacy and giving up familiar things and surroundings. This is one of the more difficult aspects of growing old Each of these changes is a difficult one to face. Yet, most older people-are able to cope with them because they've developed the inner resources Herald- Family ahead of time. Guidelines for developing a positive mental attitude on retirement- 1 Face reality Accept the facts of life, make the best of them. 2 Take responsibility Accept help when needed, but try to solve your own problems. 3 Maintain an interest in others. Don't withdraw from life. 4. Develop strong and varied interests. Share activities with others. 5 Keep up with the world around you. 6. Live in the present and look to the future, not to the past. 7. Maintain good health. Don't dwell on your aches ana THE BETTER HALF pains 8. Stay neat in your appearance and keep your home in good order 9 Relax and don't take life too seriously. 10. Adapt to change in your ideas and ways when the situation requires it. Achieving a positive mental outlook in retirement is much the same as achieving the proper attitude in any other period of your life At first, you may experience feelings of helplessness, uselessness, and doubts about your future But these feelings will soon give way to a better frame of mind if you are prepared to see things as they are and reshape your life in ways that will ensure a healthy, useful and satisfying retirement.
