There are different people with different lifestyles that they prefer to live in, there are some people who prefer to live alone so that they are able to find the most time for themselves and that they can do whatever they want to do and they do not have anyone asking them the different questions that they do not like at all. These people are the ones who actually do not like any intrusion in their life at all, but still people need people to live their life in a healthy way. It is very important to note here that the people who are living in their 50s and 60s are the ones who are the most affected living their life in total isolation.
Isolation is an environment where the individual is living all alone and when they come home they have to cook their food, wash their clothes, fix the mess in the house, but the most important thing that should be noted here is that these people do not have any one with whom they can share their feelings or thoughts, they are just hearing the echoing of their own sounds and just keep the things inside themselves. For some people this situation might be very satisfying, but I think for a lot of people this thing can be just a killer for them. For people who depend on people need someone to be with them and live their lives with and this is something that they need very badly.
The worst part is that when people need someone the most, it is at that point in time at the ages of 50s and 60s that people are living an isolated life. An isolated life for these people who are depending to share their emotions and feelings are living a very depressed life and depression is the root cause of a lot of problems that could be disastrous to these people. I believe that if you are a person who want to live in an environment where you love to spend your time to share your feelings and emotions with the person or people you love, it would be very depressing to be in a home that is all quiet, where everything is just so depressing and this is something that is taking the life out of you. Every single day is just a burden and this just very seriously affects the mental health of an individual. If you are a person who is not the kind who wishes to live alone, then you must be find yourself a partner whom you can live your life with.
There have been a lot of researches that have been carried by the researchers who are trying to find out as to what are the effects of the lifestyle of living alone on these individuals and especially the people who are in the age group from 50s to 60s and it is not only the men who live alone but also women and both of these make a big community of people who are living a life in isolation. It would not be wrong to state here that there are people who are very happy to live their life in total isolation and always wanted to live that lifestyle but just never had the opportunity and they are the ones who are very happy with how they are, but on the other hand the other group of both men and women are living a very distressing life being alone.
According to the recent research that was being conducted showed that the people who live alone are at double the risk of developing heart disease as compared to the individuals who are living with a partner. It was also added that these individuals are also more prone of developing the problems of severe angina as well as heart attacks and this includes both the men and women. It was also added that these individuals who are living alone are living a very stressed life and it is because of this that they are leaning more towards developing habits that are really devastating to their health when they need to concentrate the most towards a healthy lifestyle so that they are able to prevent from developing any serious illnesses. These individuals who are living alone are also the ones who eat poor diet and then ultimately suffer from a lot of diseases. The negative lifestyle includes excessive smoking, drinking, not taking care of their personal hygiene, not eating at regular times and thus they are at a risk of developing a lot of serious illnesses.
The researchers stated that they studied about 1000 people who were elderly and they found that there were about 646 people who were found to suffer from severe heart problems and had heart attacks and there were also individuals reported to have died from the condition known as acute coronary syndrome. Therefore on the basis of this study it was established that the relationship between age and living alone was one of the strongest reason to predict that the people from these age groups can really suffer serious medical conditions. There was also a very stunning data that stated that the women who were over the age of 60 years were a total of about 5% of the entire population but the startling finding was that they were making one third of all the deaths from the acute illness they were suffering from within the 30 day span of their diagnosis. On the other hand men who were of the age of 50 years or above made about 8% of the entire population but accounted for about two thirds of the deaths from acute illnesses in the 30 day span of diagnosis.
Therefore the major thing that accounts for the death of these individuals is the bad habits that they adopt such as smoking, poor eating habits causing them to have increased weight gain and cholesterol and depression. Another really important thing that needs to be mentioned here is that these individuals have either a very small or no social support group at all and it was also mentioned in the study that the individuals who were living alone and had a good social network were the ones who were enjoying a very healthy life with a pretty healthy lifestyle. I would conclude on another very interesting finding that the scientists have found on the factor of living alone and that was that there were monkeys who were kept in an isolated environment and during that study period it was found that these monkeys were the ones who were at a very high risk of developing atherosclerosis, which is the buildup of fat accumulation in the vessels that can lead to severe coronary disease leading ultimately to death.
