A good diet and regular exercise can be beneficial for expat health insurance policyholders worried about suffering from depression as they grow older.
Recent research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology indicated watching too much television can increase the risk of depression among older women and Michelle Clemons has offered some advice for reducing the risk of the condition manifesting itself.
Ms Clemons, a mindfulness-based master practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming and author of Transforming Stress to Success said diet and lifestyle "play a huge part", with regular exercise proven to be as effective as some anti-depressant medication.
"Diet is equally important: avoiding processed foods and eating fresh, seasonal and preferably organic produce," she observed, adding high omega 3 and vitamin D intake are "vital" for preventing depression.
Almost 50,000 women took part in the US research, which found that while regular exercise can stave off depression, spending long periods of time watching television will cause the risk of the condition occurring to rise.
