The Aging: The Role Of Stress In Older Adults

Satisfactory Essays
Stress can be anything from a panic attack about a daily issue to a death of a loved one. I believe that stress is different for each individual. Stress in the aging process, for some is a hard thing to accept, and to do everything possible during the younger years will ensure a healthier older age. An example is a friend of mine is 25 years old, and because she is so aware of her mother and grandmother’s health, because they did not take good care of themselves, my friend has made it a top priority to ensure that she eats healthy and exercises daily. This in itself can be stressful. As it has also discussed in the lesson, stress can be dealt with in a number of ways, such as having a support system, or a person who has a strong religious faith.
