Retirement: What keeps me up at night?
by Bill O
I'm Bill O and I am 88 years old/young. I live with my daughter and two mid twenty year olds and her second husband. They both lost their spouse to MS and met on a dating site.
In can't answer your question about "what keeps you up at night", because I don't have that problem. I can tell you what I do in the evening that may help others to relax before going to bed.
1. starting at 5:00 PM I have 2 or 3 Scotch and club soda drinks, before and after dinner. I sip them slowly up to about 9:00 PM.
2. I go on the Internet and/or the TV for news, and sometimes send in a comment about a news story.
3. the TV shows I watch are old movies and EWTN a Catholic religious station for inspiration and encouragement to just let God pilot the plane, and just sit back and relax/trust .
4. I say prayers in bed: of thanksgiving for each day, and ask for forgiveness, and pray for people that I know are suffering. I have a list and I add their name to the list.
That works for me. Maybe, it could work for others. Regards Bill
