According to a study by Harvard Medical School, the older a person gets, the more he or she worries about his or her finances, the risk of new health problems or the recurrence of old ones, potential injuries or even global events such as COVID-19.
Researchers speculate that this may be due to biological changes in the brain of individuals as they grow up combined with the unfavorable life experiences that everyone has. As a result, fear can lead to social anxiety disorder, agoraphobia or generalized anxiety disorder.
What to do:
In ours, be aware that there are many health programs in the insurance market that include hospital coverage for mental health treatment and also cover visits to psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists. They also support physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathy in case you need to improve your physical functions, as well as sessions with therapists, alternative therapists and specialist nurses.
The new trend of insurance companies is to provide, among other things, a Life Management Assistance program through even Apps that they have created. They are particularly interested in the well-being of their clients and some offer short-term counseling support, direct telephone support and access to an online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) program.
