Beginnings are always a little scary, aren't they? Whether it's getting all settled in for a roller coaster ride, or preparing for a new job...or whatever...starting into the unknown can unravel one for a while!
What a busy week! I have been blessed to have my granddaughter visit me for a few days before she goes off to college for the first time. It's not anything like sending her to kindergarten...worse, in some ways! As an adult in a rather rocky world, and having been to college myself, I know that amidst the wonderment of higher education stalks difficulties and...sometimes...bad people. It's scary to know that Alex will be totally on her own-not that she isn't a very capable person-but the unknown (for me, her grandma)-is frightening.

It’s now both proven and accepted that long-term stress has damaging effects on our health, yet the effects of midlife stress into old age are just beginning to surface.
By the time people reach their midlife it often becomes increasingly clear what their career limitations are. They find it harder to change career or even to slide across to other companies in the same or similar roles. There’s also a good chance they are in a position of some responsibility, along with all the stress that comes with the job. Looking forward to retirement, or even early retirement, may seem a way to leave all the stress behind, but is it really that simple?
Depending on the survey you consult, estimates of perceived work-related stress vary anywhere from 30 to nearly 60 percent of the working population at any given time. Over the past few years, research into mild or moderate work-stress during middle age, shows an increased likelihood of disability in old age.
