The last thing that most seniors and older adults want is getting stressed out after a long day working and putting food on the table. Even when some seniors are already retired, most want to live a simple and quiet life without having to worry about things that might stress them out. Fortunately, there are a variety of stress-relieving activities that seniors can do.

But the main challenge for a lot of seniors is that they don’t necessarily have the strength to do the same physical activities that their body can usually do when they were young. At the same time, their bodies won’t stand more intense therapies like heavy exercises, weight-lifting, or even massages geared towards bones and muscles.

Still, it’s important not to get too stressed out as it is a cause for a variety of different diseases. Not only will stress make you feel like you’re ready to run or fight someone, but it can significantly cut down your lifespan if it’s not addressed. Most people might think that stress will usually come from one source, but it’s actually a combination of physical, chemical, mental, and emotional factors that most seniors are not aware of.

So what are the best stress-relieving activities and therapies that seniors can effectively do while making them feel youthful again?

What Can Stress Do to the Body?

There’s a common notion that stress is related to something “negative,” as most people will associate it with work, fatigue, and strain. In reality, stress is a normal part of our life and is a reaction of our body to external stimuli, especially if we know that there is a perceived threat to our health and well-being.

Despite most people thinking that stress does have negative notions, there are actually two types of stress.

  1. Good stress — Developed through exercises, therapies, and any activity that can help release happy hormones.
  2. Bad stress — This is commonly associated with stress from work, adverse events, and health complications.
