October is Mental Health Month, and has some other wonderful celebratory days within it. Lovely excuses for neighbourly chats, and catch-up cuppas.  question Thank you for your timely post!


Thanks for this article.   Now that I am retired, I find myself able to think more clearly about many items that I had to simply react to while I was under the stresses of working.   I do not have to "shoot from the hip" on decisions so much.  I have always found reading relaxing and educating and now I can do this more.   Stress reduction is a big mental health plus.

It's a big issue, but OTOH, you can get bored and find your mind wandering more. I got a part time job just to keep me sharp. Nothing taxing and not many hours, a lot of it remote, but just enough to keep my mind keen. But that was after 3.5 years of retirement.
