Retirement And Old age Counselling
The authors, a husband-wife team long active in counseling and involved for 30 yr. in work with the old, are now 83 and 81 yr. old and have been residing in an institution for old persons for 3 yr. From this total experience has come the conviction that (a) there is a great need for counseling of the old and their families; (b) there is a special understanding that a counselor, who also is old, can bring to such work; and (c) this counseling involves distinct opportunities. Counseling is needed against independent living too long continued and unhappily restrictive dependence on family. It is also needed for shrewd appraisal of various types of real estate developments, housing, and institutions for the old. In these last types of accommodation, a resident counselor can aid in initial and continuing orientations, building friendships, utilization of all resources, meeting crises, and resident-management relations. Such work with the old offers a unique opportunity for the older counselor, but preparation for this role is a neglected obligation of both graduate and adult education. Potentialities for research regarding aging are great and almost unrecognized.
Stress management has become a major topic of study over the past few years. With the growing tensions and work pressures in our daily lives, most of the people are suffering from stress and are unable to manage it. Stress has physical and emotional effects on us and can create negative feelings. Stress management techniques have to be consciously incorporated in your daily lives in order to fight. If ignored for over a long period of time, stress can affect the health of any individual. There are many reasons that can cause stress. It could be due to problems at the workplace, at home, with friends. Too much of physical strain can also lead to stress. Stress and tension walk hand in hand. When you find yourself overindulge in eating, smoking, lashing out at others, and drinking to excess, you know that you need stress management. Stress can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn can lead to health problems such as headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia, ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. The first step for stress management is to find the root or the cause of tension. Ask yourself the most important question ‘why?’ If you are able to pin point your tensions or problems adequately, half the battle is won. The second step is to work towards what you can change or avoid. Directing your energies towards a goal set up by you is another way of avoiding stress. Let us look at some physical methods of managing stress. Relaxation techniques can reduce muscle tension. Slow, deep breathing is the best option. It is a simple exercise which will help you relax.
