The following points should be noted by the elderly:
The proper use of the brain, the more you can use the more spiritual
Retirement is a common biological law, as is the human brain. To maintain vitality, the elderly must continue to use their brains, take the initiative to go out and learn something they like, such as studying painting and calligraphy, dancing, and Taijiquan at senior universities. Through conscious brainpower and physical exercise, they can continue to tap the potential of the brain and enhance it. Physical fitness, which effectively delays mental decline.
Socialize with peers
People are herds of animals, and social interaction is the basic need of people. After retirement, the elderly can properly participate in some social activities and establish close relationships with their peers. Not only can it stimulate the brain and widen the interpersonal relationship, but it can also produce social support effects, so that the elderly can get rid of loneliness and loneliness.
Psychological factors have a great influence on the mental decline of the elderly. Factors affecting mental decline include intellectual and non-intelligent factors. The effectiveness of intellectual factors is restricted by non-intellectual factors. Although some aspects of older people’s intelligence deteriorate with age, the rate of development is slow. Therefore, as long as the elderly have a correct outlook on life and values and maintain a happy mood, non-intelligent factors generally do not decline, and the longer they may live, the stronger the non-intelligent factors. No matter how old you are, as long as you can maintain optimism, enthusiasm and vitality, you can delay the mental decline of the elderly.
Strengthen cognitive training
Some foreign scientific studies have pointed out that the less the human brain is trained, the faster it ages. The most effective way to delay mental decline is the training of cognitive ability. In this regard, older people can consciously strengthen training.
Eat more healthy ingredients
The elderly need to be healthy, and the role of food supplement is also great. Foods rich in calcium are very beneficial to the brain. Middle-aged and elderly people should eat more milk and dairy products, soybeans and soy products, and seaweed foods. B vitamins play an extremely important role in maintaining the normal function of nerves and many enzymes. Walnuts, peanuts, animal livers, etc. are rich in vitamin E. In addition, fungi, alkaline foods and fermented foods are also good for brain health.
Aunt Yang, upset
“Well, I have diabetes. I think it’s because my daughter-in-law is tired of Lianyungang! This child is so irrational …” Aunt Yang, who checked in the hospital, said to the doctor. This is the case. Aunt Yang had a very leisurely life after retiring. If it was not for her daughter-in-law to take care of her child, she would not stay at her daughter-in-law’s house for a few years. In order to allow her son to have a comfortable living environment and work worry-free, she left her wife and took care of her children.
Aunt Yang gets up at 6 every morning and goes out early to buy back early. At 7 o’clock, he sent his son and daughter-in-law to get up to wash and eat. They went to work and left. Aunt Yang started the mode of taking care of children and doing housework. Cooking is the thing that Aunt Yang worryes about most a day. The food of the daughter-in-law must be nutritious, the meal of the son must be smooth, the milk powder of the child cannot be too hot, and his appetite is not good. He needs to eat digestible food. After packing up everything for lunch, she must coax the child to sleep immediately. Only when the child is asleep, can she have a rest time. In the afternoon, the child woke up. If the weather is good, take the child downstairs to breathe fresh air. At 5 o’clock, she started preparing dinner so that her son-in-law would have dinner at home at 7 o’clock. Dinner will be at least a few more dishes than lunch, and the workload will increase again. After dinner, clean up the kitchen, bathe the child, and then send the child to sleep in the daughter-in-law’s room.
Busy day. Aunt Yang felt exhausted. Missing her past leisure time, she comforted herself: everything is only temporary, just wait for the child to go to kindergarten. At first, her daughter-in-law was still patient with her to take care of her children, but it didn’t take long to start complaining: I got up too early at 8 in the morning and couldn’t rest early at night. I started shopping online in a while, and when the story was told, the child asked two more “why” and got angry, and when he was cooking, he tried to save trouble without considering the child’s digestive ability … not only did he not care about the child, the daughter-in-law often sent work Aunt Yang’s son, for example, piled dry clothes by the bed and waited for his son to go home.
Aunt Yang couldn’t see this kind of behavior that she would not bother to help when the oil bottle fell down. She was angry and suffocated in private. Over time, she felt uncomfortable when her body became angry. A checkup at the hospital this time revealed diabetes.
Is diabetes linked to bad mood
Can Diabetes “Qi” Come Out? The doctor said, “This old lady’s illness may really have a lot to do with her being angry.” Don’t believe it. The latest scientific research has found that bad mood and mental factors are also important culprits for diabetes. The pathogenesis of diabetes is insufficient or relatively insufficient secretion of insulin in the body. In addition to the regulation of factors such as endocrine hormones and blood glucose, the amount of insulin secreted is also directly affected by autonomic nerve function. When a person is in a state of tension, anxiety, fear, or fright, the sympathetic nerves excite and directly inhibit insulin secretion. At the same time, the sympathetic nerves also promote increased adrenaline secretion and indirectly inhibit insulin secretion. If this bad mood persists for a long time, it may cause islet b-cell dysfunction, and the tendency of insufficient insulin secretion will be finally fixed, which will lead to the occurrence of diabetes.
Some experts also specifically stated that not everyone will induce diabetes due to adverse emotions, and the effect of adverse emotions on insulin secretion is more obvious to middle-aged and elderly people; moreover, it is not just ordinary adverse emotions that can cause diabetes, only this emotion Repeated stimulation and persistent effects on the body can induce diabetes.
Improve the mental state of diabetic patients
By the same token, nervousness, anxiety, anger, fear, loneliness, despair and other bad emotions can make the diabetic patient’s condition repetitive or worse. What must be emphasized here is that people with diabetes should relax their minds and treat life and disease with an optimistic and positive attitude. This is critical for controlling blood sugar. In addition, usually participating in more social activities and appropriate physical exercise can also help improve mood and control the disease. The family members of patients should also guide, encourage, comfort and understand the patients, and help them build confidence to overcome the disease. In addition, patients can also participate in some special lectures on diabetes, understand the basic knowledge and countermeasures of diabetes and its complications, and correct misconceptions and bad behaviors. When patients have difficulty in resolving anxiety, depression and other emotions, they should consult a specialist in time to avoid exacerbating the disease.
