DAILY ROUTINES FOR
Recent studies show that over a quarter of adults over the age of 65 experience symptoms of anxiety that significantly impact their day-to-day life. So why are older adults so stressed? It’s because of the toll aging takes on their minds and bodies. Many loved one’s lose their sense of independence as they age because they are unable to live as they once did. Tasks that were once easy for them now may be difficult or impossible to do without assistance, and older adults may begin to worry about how and when these things will get done. One of the most effective ways to combat this anxiety is to develop a daily routine with them. The predictability of a method can be a significant stress-reliever for you and your loved one.
While it may sound elementary, studies have shown that routines can significantly improve the lives of loved ones by reducing levels of anxiety/depression, improving sleep, and even increasing their safety. There’s also a science to setting up an active routine. With a little planning, you and your loved one can set up a productive, fun routine that helps them worry less and enjoy life more.
