lonelyIf you often feel depressed and lonely, try to count how old you are? If you enter the age group of 35-44 years of age then it is the the most difficult age for people where they often get depressed and lonely.

Depression
is associated with leaving job, work pressure, bad relationships with colleagues, problems at home that makes stress and lack of sex life.

This conclusion is based on a survey conducted in England on 2,000 participants. The result showed that the 35-44 year old age group felt more lonely or depressed than any other age group.

Based on the survey results it is known that about 21 percent of men and women aged 35-44 years feels more lonely, and the same percentage for a bad relationship either at work or home that makes participants feel depressed.

The survey also found that about 28 percent of participant in the 35-44 years age group had left their jobs because of having bad relationships with co-workers.

“Mid-life crisis usually occurs in people aged 40s to 50s. But the report suggests that this period may occur earlier than expected,” said Claire Tyler, chief executive of Relate.

Meanwhile, Professor Cary Cooper, a researcher from Lancaster University said that it could worsen the economic conditions that would affect health.

“Someone works for hours, if you continue to work long hours then this condition will not be good for health. So that the annual costs associated with mental health will become a big problem,” says Prof Cooper.

The most common source of problems of this condition is long working hours, pressure from the people around, an inappropriate division of work and to have a lacking sex life.

“The results of this survey may also be influenced by the willingness of people in that age group to be honest about the depression and loneliness, compared to the older age group. But of course there are other possibilities of the truth found, because at that age usually people have higher expectations in terms of achieving career and family life, “said Dr. Jane McCartney, a psychologist.
