Aging can bring major life changes...

While there are many joys to getting older – such as watching grown children get married, welcoming grandchildren, and gaining wisdom through life experiences – it can also bring transitions, challenges, and uncertainties.

Sources of stress for Active Adults may include facing changes in lifestyle and financial status after retirement, experiencing new physical limitations and reduced mobility, and managing discomfort or chronic illness. In addition, you may experience losses of loved ones and friends, and roles and relationships may change if you become a caregiver for your spouse, parents, adult children, or grandchildren.1

If you experience stress as an Active Adult, you are not alone: according to the The National Institute of Mental Health, depression among those ages 65 and older is considered to be a major public health problem.2 Additionally,
46% of older adults report that stress and worry related to the COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on their mental health.3

The good news is there are tools you can learn to reduce stress, be more present, and find joy, meaning, and fulfillment in this stage of your life.
