Stress Relief Techniques for Seniors in Victoria, BC

Uncategorized  |  October 28, 2020

Stress is a normal part of life, but it is important to find ways to reduce it, especially in senior years. Stress managing techniques are very easy to follow, enabling seniors to improve their mental and physical well-being as well as overall wellness.

Why is stress management so important?

Ever since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, many people have experienced mental health issues. Seniors have been under a lot of stress over these past months, and since stress is related to a wide range of health problems, we need to find ways to help our senior loved ones cope with the situation.

How can seniors manage stress?

Engaging in activities and hobbies that bring joy and satisfaction is one of the best ways for older adults to reduce stress. There are many stress relief techniques seniors can practice in order to feel better and more relaxed, including:

  • Spending quality time with family and friends (if social distancing measures are in place, video chats are a great alternative to house visits).
  • Meditation at the same time every day or when feeling particularly stressed.
  • Deep breathing and mindfulness exercises.
  • Following a senior-friendly exercise program.
  • Eating a healthy diet.
  • Writing a journal and thinking about all the positive things that happened during each day.
  • Meeting like-minded people online.
  • Having a to-do list and following a routine.
  • Practicing yoga at home.
  • Listening to relaxing music.
  • Watching funny videos and TV shows.
