Improve Sense of Control, Feel Younger

Parent Interventions

A new research done by psychologists at North Carolina State University shows that irrespective of stress and health, improving the sense of control among older adults can help them stay younger.

For the purpose of the study, younger adults in the age group pf 18 to 36 and older adults in the age group of 60 to 90 were studied on the basis of a questionnaire given to them. They were assessed for their age, daily physical health, stressors, average control among others based on answering questions to surveys for eight days. It was found that among older adults, higher daily control help them stay younger whereas for younger adults stress and health conditions made they feel older in some situations.

The study points out to giving older adults a sense of autonomy as it has impact on how younger they feel and their overall well-being.
