What Every Senior in Edmonton Needs to Know About Stress Relief Techniques for Seniors

Stress Relief Techniques for Seniors | Stress is part of our life journey. Whether it’s a positive or negative occurrence, stress happens. For adults who are done with raising children and career responsibilities, they find different stressors arrive. Older adults tend to be concerned or worried about their health, independence slipping away, managing finances for unknown numbers of years ahead, and the death of loved ones. This is all normal stress, but seniors need healthy coping skills.

Studies have proven that stress is often connected with mental and physical problems, ranging from anxiety and depression to hypertension and even lowered immunity. Unmanaged stress can increase the risk of heart disease by 40%, heart attack by 25%, and stroke by 50%. Stress can make other existing medical conditions worse, as well. What can a senior do to manage stress healthily?

There are numerous stress relief techniques to be learned that can improve health and well-being. The following items might be helpful to you or your loved one.
