Before you retired, things that may have stressed you out were busy days at the office or taking care of your young children. Now as you grow older, you will have different stressors: the loss of a loved one, too much unstructured time on your hands, a change in relationship with your family members, or a loss of physical abilities.
The good thing is that this is normal, and there are ways to overcome this stress. Dr. Dossett addresses ways to manage stress in the article "How stress affects seniors, and how to manage it", published on the Harvard Health website. To learn Dr. Dossett's tips, click on the link below.
