Seniors and Stress Chronic

Chronic stress is harmful to people of all ages, but its impact on older adults can be particularly severe, increasing the risk of age-related diseases, hastening cognitive decline, and even triggering falls. Stressors that are common amongst the elderly include loss of control, personal loss, declining health, financial worries, personal safety, and loss of independence. To reduce stress, get regular exercise, eat balanced meals to ensure the mind and body are properly fueled, and ask for help. Talking with a trusted family member, friend, or healthcare professional, at the very least, releases pent-up stress and may even lead to a solution.

Seniors’ Nutrition

As people age, proper nutrition can become a challenge. For example, seniors may have smaller appetites, making it difficult to eat enough to ensure good nutrition. They may also have health conditions that change their sense of taste or smell, making some foods unappealing. In addition, seniors who once cooked big, healthy meals for family can find themselves uninspired by the thought of cooking for one or two. But good nutrition is important at every stage of life. Seniors should focus on eating a variety of foods, particularly fruits and vegetables, with some whole grains and protein to help ensure they are getting the nutrients they need.

A Healthy Anaerobic/Aerobic System

Cardiovascular exercise is any exercise that raises your heart rate. One myth in today’s fitness world is that increasing cardio can only be achieved through lengthy steady state activities such as running or using an elliptical machine for extended periods of time. If you ONLY run or use the elliptical in that slow, steady state, you are ignoring your anaerobic system. You could run faster for short bouts to access this system or you could do some metabolic resistance training. It’s a more efficient and effective way to target both your anaerobic and aerobic systems and you can challenge all of your muscles, not just those in your lower body. Using your preferred method of resistance (weights, bands, bodyweight) will target both systems and increase metabolic conditioning in a fraction of the time compared to the traditional “cardio” methods.

What’s Tok Sen Massage?

Tok Sen Massage originated in northern Thailand and blends elements of traditional Thai massage with the use of Tok Sen instruments. A small mallet and wedge, usually made from the tamarind tree, are used during the massage treatment. These wooden instruments create a deep vibration as one strikes the other, helping to stimulate energy points and energy lines in the body. This is coupled with passive stretches and manual pressure to help bring the mind and body into a state of greater well-being. Tok Sen Massage can be a very relaxing, healing and energizing experience that works with energy flow.
