The stress of raising a family may be gone, job or career stress is gone, yet new stressors develop. Why? Because stress is unavoidable. Stressors continually change as adults age. More concerns develop over the loss of friends or family, creating an awareness of one’s own health issues. Tight budgets during retirement years can make living a challenge, too. These are normal stressful situations, but they’re not easy. Aging adults will typically benefit from additional coping skills for their later years.
Since stress is connected with anxiety, depression, hypertension, and lowered immunity, there are plenty of reasons to reduce stress. Proper management is vitally important, as stress can increase the likelihood of cardiac problems by 40%, heart attack by 25%, and stroke by 50%!
