At any ages

Are adults more stressed than children or older adults?

No, the lives of children and the elderly often involve more novelty, unpredictability and uncontrollability than adults’ lives - the elements that make for a stressful situation.

Older adults generally move around less than adults or youths. In this perspective, how can we reduce their stress?

They are many ways to reduce stress. Being active is useful in order to expend accumulated energy that is stored in our body after a stressful situation. A good walk is sufficient to spend the energy needed. Laughing is also a good solution to remedy stress. This can be done by going to see a comedy show for instance. Finally, another good way to reduce stress is to participate in social activities and receive some social support.
