In Greek mythology, Zeus banished his son Tantalus to the very deepest part of the Underworld (to be fair, Tantalus appears to have largely brought this upon himself). There, he was to stand in a pool of water beneath a fruit tree. Whenever he reached for the fruit, the branches rose (‘tantalisingly’) away from his grasp. Whenever he bent down to get a drink, the water receded.

For those of us in Generation X, the story of Tantalus is perhaps how we view discussion of pension age (p.12). But if we do get to retirement, will it be positive for our physical and mental health (p.24), and how might we make the most of it? ‘The Psychologist Guide to Retirement’, accompanying this issue and on our website, provides some evidence - based tips. Please do share with anyone you think might benefit from it.

In the meantime, we must surely approach our working lives with stoicism the Greeks would have admired: resilience, positivity, work ethic. No, says David Frayne (p.50): ‘stop this nonsense’.
