I   was   pleasantly   surprised   to   hear   the   news   that   West   Sussex   in   England   is   the   top county   when   it   comes   to   quality   of   life   in   retirement   according   to   a   new   analysis   by The   Prudential*.   However   I   could   not   help   thinking   there   must   be   an   underlying reason for anyone wanting to make a life changing move. It      is      not      often      we      beat      our neighbouring   county   East   Sussex   with its     famous     diverse     population     in Brighton.    I    think    West    Sussex    is    a fabulous      place      to      live      especially Chichester.   Now   you   might   think   I   am being    a    bit    bias    being    a    Chichester resident   however   several   years   ago   I did    not    choose    to    live    in    Chichester because    of    the    retirement    benefits highlighted    in    the    analysis.    I    came here   because   of   work   which   required a   move.   I   must   add   I   have   never   had   any   regrets   moving   though.   I   believe   as   the report    says    it    is    a    happy    and    comfortable    environment.    But    what    does    this analysis really reveal? First   a   little   on   the   report.   It   is   based   on   8   indicators   such   as   disability-free   life expectancy,   crime   levels,   access   to   healthcare,   pension   income,   healthy   lifestyle, pensioners   moving   to   the   county,   pensioner   proportion   and   weather.   I   cannot help   wondering   though   as   a   counsellor   based   in   the   Chichester   area   is   there something more which has been overlooked even ignored. Weather      which      is      one      of      their indicators   seems   to   be   an   important factor   to   our   welling-being.   They   do say   weather   is   the   most   talked   about subject   in   our   country.   But   I’m   sure you     will     agree     weather     is     quite subjective     not     everyone     feels     the same.    Good    weather    it    seems    for most    is    usually    based    on    when    the sun      comes      out.      Ironically      and weather    being    subjective,    we    often start   to   moan   and   groan   when   the   it gets   too   hot   or   the   sun   makes   an   appearance   for   too   long.   “We   really   could   do with some rain for the garden”. “It’s so hot I can’t sleep at night”. Familiar stuff, eh? I   once   met   a   young   lady   who   loved   the   rain.   When   it   rained   she   would   walk   literally for   ages.   It   seems   this   gave   her   a   true   feeling   of   well-being.   I   am   sure   for   her   the rain   was   her   sunshine   which   links   very   nicely   into   my   counselling   philosophy,   “I   am the   sunshine   of   my   life   and   having   you   in   it   makes   it   brighter”.   I   believe   it   should not   be   the   other   way   around   as   in   the   lyrics   of   the   famous   song   “you   are   the sunshine   of   my   life”.   In   other   words,   we   need   to   love   ourselves   first   not   place   the emphasis   solely   on   loving   others   so   they   might   love   us.   They   cannot   replace   that sunshine.   To   love   ourselves   means   to   look   after   our   own   needs   so   we   must   take good care of ourselves first. The   young   lady   who   chose   to   love   the   rain   has   chosen   to   look   after   her   own needs.   She   feels   she   does   not   have   to   follow   the   vast   majority   of   people   who usually   love   the   sunshine.   The   people   who   love   the   hustle   and   bustle   of   city   life are    looking    after    their    own    needs.    They    do    not    want    the    quiet    peaceful surroundings    of    rural    life.    The    pensioners    who    moved    to    West    Sussex    love themselves   enough   to   look   after   their   own   needs   even   though   it   might   mean moving   away   from   family   and   friends.   They   love   themselves   enough   to   look   after their   well-being   and   start   up   new   activities   such   as   walking   along   the   Downs, visiting   the   wealth   of   historic   buildings   or   take   up   some   more   unusual   keep-fit activities such as Belly Dancing  or Gyrokinesis ®. I   believe   the   real   underlying   message   in   this   report   is   the   importance   of   loving ourselves   which   leads   to   looking   after   our   own   needs.   The   need   for   good   physical and mental health help us shine and reach our full potential. So, if we love ourselves does it really matter which county we live in? “Robert Lee is a counsellor based in Chichester, counselling clients in the Chichester area including Birdham, The Witterings, East and West Wittering and Bracklesham Bay.
