What would you wish for in retirement? Good health? Financial stability? A supportive social community? Retiring well is everyone’s goal, but accomplishing this end requires planning and effort. Family physician Gwen Halaas recognizes the challenges professional caregivers such as clergy experience as they try to practice good self-care, particularly as they approach the significant changes inherent in retirement.
Halaas offers sympathetic but pointed guidance for developing and maintaining the six dimensions of wellness—physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational, and spiritual—as we both anticipate and live into our retirement years. Readers will find this book informational, inspirational, and encouraging.
