Give Yourself a Mental Health Makeover
Many people battle depression as they age. But this shouldn’t be considered a normal condition for people who are aging.
Some factors that lead to depression in seniors include:
· Chronic disease
· Social isolation
· Death of a spouse or family members
If you’re struggling with feelings of hopelessness and sadness it’s important that you seek help from a professional as soon as possible.
There are many things you can do to improve the way you feel.
Staying social is one critical element of good mental health.
Joining groups that allow you to spend time with others is a great way to boost your spirits and provide you with positive mental health.
If you suffer from a chronic disease, a support group may be able to help you feel better about your condition.
It’s also important to practice self-care and ask for help and support when you need it.
Often people have the misconception that it’s normal to feel depressed or blue when they get older.
Because of that they either don’t seek help or get misdiagnosed.
Make sure that you don’t just dismiss your feelings as a normal part of aging.
Beyond depression, seniors also experience mental health issues such as:
· Problems with sleep
The best way to slow down problems with mental health is to take good care of your body at the youngest age possible.
Nutrition and exercise are critical for maintaining good mental health.
It’s also important to accept new challenges that require strategic thinking. Even completing puzzles can help you to stay mentally sharp.
You also want to make sure that you avoid social isolation and make it a point to participate in social activities.
You may also find it beneficial to seek spiritual connection through a faith community.
