Health is affected by the feeling of old age, new research came to the fore

 Health is also related to thinking. This has been heard. But now a new research has also suggested that realizing the negative aspects of old age has an effect on your physical health and it also affects your ability to fight stress. This research findings have been published in the Journals of Gerontology.

Researchers at OSU found, based on daily survey data of older adults over a period of 100 days, that those with positive perceptions of aging had stronger stress coping abilities than those with negative perceptions.

Dakota Witzel, a researcher in OSU's College of Public Health and Human Science and lead author of the study, said that feeling good about old age is better for your health. It doesn't matter how much stress you go through. Research on stress has found that the effects of daily and long-term stress manifest in the form of many symptoms on health. These include high blood pressure, heart disease and loss of cognitive ability. But the feeling of tension created by perception is equally risky.

For the study, the researchers conducted an online survey of 105 elderly people in the age group of 52 to 88 years and tried to know their life and social experiences (PULSE). Based on this, perception-based stress and its effect on health were assessed for 100 days. Along with this, a questionnaire regarding old age was also filled from them. In the questions, it was asked that about the difficulties that you felt today, do you believe that it is so difficult that you cannot overcome it. Also do you think that you have become so old that there is no longer any use.

It was found that people who had bad feelings about old age also had higher levels of perception-based stress. Whereas people with positive feelings had fewer symptoms of illness. It is noteworthy that on days when there were more negative feelings about old age, the symptoms of health problems were three times more than on normal days. In other words, the positive feeling of old age creates a protective effect against the health effects of stress.

Witzel said this means that thinking patterns or modes of communication that reinforce the archaic negativity about old age have an effect on a person's material life. These things not only affect our health but also create problems in daily life.

Do you know these things about Anthony Albanese who defeated Scott Morrison? Many challenges will be faced as Prime Minister

Do you know these things about Anthony Albanese who defeated Scott Morrison? Many challenges will be faced as Prime Minister

Australian voters have pushed for an end to nine years of Liberal rule in favor of a centre-left opposition that has promised strong action on climate change. To form a majority government, parties need a majority of 76 seats. The Labor Party's Anthony Albanese, who won the election, will now be the new Prime Minister of Australia. After the election results were out, Morrison said he would resign as leader of the Liberal Party. He said that he takes responsibility for his party's defeat. The Labor Party currently holds 73 seats, according to the Australian Electoral Commission. Early vote counts showed a strong bias toward Greens candidates and independents, who sought emissions cuts far beyond commitments made by Morrison's coalition.

Who is  Anthony  Albanese 

Albanese is one of Australia's longest-serving politicians and was briefly deputy prime minister under Kevin Rudd in 2013. He has earned a reputation as a defender of free healthcare, an advocate of LGBT rights, a Republican and a diehard rugby league fan. Albanese, 59, had a childhood spent by a single mother with the help of a disability pension. At the age of just 33, he reached Parliament in 1996 by winning the Sydney seat on a Labor Party ticket. In 2007, when Kevin Rudd's Labor Party came to power, Albanese was made Minister of Infrastructure and Transport. Due to internal strife in the party, the Prime Minister was changed and Anthony Albanese became Deputy Prime Minister. But his tenure as Deputy PM lasted only 10 weeks. His party lost in the next election.

 Challenges ahead for Albanese as Prime Minister?

One of Albanese's first priorities as prime minister will be to rebuild relations with foreign leaders, who Morrison says has neglected foreign policy in recent years. China recently signed a military agreement with the Solomon Islands near Australia, China is planning to build its first military base in the Pacific. On Tuesday, Albanians are expected to be in Tokyo for talks with quad members from the United States, India and Japan, where they will discuss priorities for safeguarding free passage in the Indo-Pacific. Voters have turned to the Labor Party over the Liberal Party's inaction on climate change. Marija Taflaga, director of the Australian Politics Study Center at the Australian National University, noted the vote's shift to the Greens.
