Depression in the elderly is a widespread problem that is often not diagnosed and frequently under-treated. Many people will not admit to the signs and symptoms of depression, for fear that they will be labeled as being mentally unstable, weak or crazy. Some people may be aware of their depression, but believe that nothing can be done about it.
Friends and family can help the depressed elderly person by spending time with them. Spending time with grandchildren is a way for the elderly to stay active. Sometimes the young adults need to be reminded to spend some time with their grandparents.
When Depression is Due to Loss
Each individual has to find the courage and strength to continue to live their life at their own pace. Not everyone deal with tragedies and losses the same as others. Some people need a longer time and a slower pace to return to living a normal life after losing someone.

Many people encounter stress, due to lack of scheduling their daily tasks. Some wait, until the very last minute, before doing anything. Scheduling, my tasks a day ahead, make them easier for me, the next day.
Before I started scheduling, my tasks were overwhelming! Trying to get too many things accomplished – caused difficulty in sleeping. This brought on sleep apnea attacks. Working outside of the home, being a parent, and spouse – and having to attend events, can be very stressful! And increasingly stressful, if you are a student or a career parent.
I can relate to all of the above.
Never schedule more than you know, you can do. Start with a few tasks for each day. Make a six-day schedule. Make a shopping list. Plan the shopping list, on the day, that is not your shopping day. This allows to carefully list all of the things you will need, until you need to visit the store again. Never wait until you run out of food, before you go shopping. When I shop, I buy enough food to last for two weeks. But, I will visit the store two days, before I run out of food.
*Laundry should never be done while other tasks are being performed.
*Plan your menu for the next day, and don’t alter your plan.
1.Start shopping several days ahead of the holiday:
2.House cleaning and shopping, shouldn’t be done on the same day
3.purchase foods that you know your family will eat
4.Shop when you aren’t rushed for time
5.Shopping for food and gifts for the holidays, aren’t stressful when done on
6. Shop for gifts on the days you have more time to spend in the store.
7. Pick a time of the day or night, that you feel the stores in your community
are less crowded.
Allowing Time for Yourself:
This is very difficult to do. But when it is done, it relieves tension, that causes stress.
Before going to bed, take time to unwind. Find something that helps you to relax. Never schedule any tasks for all 7 days of the week. Use one day to have some freedom.
I found that sitting on the floor and stretching, along with taking deep breaths and some other forms, of exercises – I came up with, help me to relax, and sleep more comfortably. Since these exercises, have greatly helped me, I want to share them with others.
Illustrations, and information, for exercising – and stress related illnesses, are listed in the book above.

When we exercise our body parts, we are exercising our heart. Exercising increases the efficiency of contraction and output of the heart per beat. The heart of a physically fit person has an increase in blood output per heartbeat. Therefore, such an individual’s heart does not need to beat as fast during exercise. The demand on the heart output (blood pumped per minute) remains constant while resting. Therefore, the heart rate that is needed to maintain this output is less in a physically fit person.
During Rest: Blood Flow per Minute
Brain__ ½ pint (0.25 liter)
Skin__ 1 pint (0.5 liter)
Muscles__ 2 pints (1 liter)
Coronary arteries ½ pint (0.25 liter)
Digestive system /liver__ 3 pints (1.5 liters)
Kidneys 1 ½ pints (0.75 liter)
Your body makes enormous demands on your heart under different conditions. At rest, the total blood volume is pumped in about one minute.
During Exercise: Blood Flow per Minute
Brain__ ½ pint (0.25 liter)
Skin___ 4 pints (2 liters)
Muscles__ 24 pints (12 liters)
Coronary arteries __ 1 ½ pints (0.75 liter)
Digestive System /liver__ 1 pint (0.5 liter)
Kidneys__ 1 ½ pints (0.75 liter)
During strenuous exercise, there is a major change in the rate of blood flow through different parts of the body. This is brought about by changes in the degree of constriction of the small arteries.

The Effects of Anorexia Nervosa, is done by the interference of starvation that disrupts the biochemistry makeup of the body’s systems.
The Effects of Anorexia Nervosa:
Hair loss, dull looking hair Constipation
Emaciation Corroded teeth
Excessive fatigue Slow pulse
Sleep disturbance Brittle fingernails
Hormone imbalance Low blood pressure upon standing
Amenorrhea (lack of monthly cycles) May have difficulty sleeping
Behavior of the Anorexia Nervosa Individual
The characteristic behavior of Anorexia Nervosa is secretive and defensive. The individual is preoccupied with food and weight gain, that dominates their thought process. They often feels hungry but denies they are. They will normally wear larger clothes to conceal their body shape and weight loss.
The person suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, may resort to drugs and alcohol, to alleviate the feeling of hunger and depression. Having a relationship with someone is very difficult for this individual to do, because of the psychological state of their mind. Therefore, they are often in an isolated position, due to one or more failed relationships.
