The transition from youth and the establishment of an independent identity.
Finishes growth cycles – the body enters maintenance phase. No longer produces cells for growth as in previous life stages.
Your basal metabolic rate, or BMR, is the minimum calorific requirement needed to sustain life in a resting individual. It can be looked at as being the amount of energy (measured in calories) expended by the body to remain in bed asleep all day! This DECREASES during adulthood. WHY?
Emotional: the most significant change is forming intimate relationships.
Early: intimate sexual relationships, choose life parnter, increased sense of identity, parenting children and increased feelings of love.
Middle: increased feelings of self-worth and identity as career and family continue to develop. Coping with ageing parents, coping with changes in relationships and loss, increased feeling of security.
Later: coping with grief and loss, coping with physical changes through ageing, adjusting to new self identity with children seeking their own independence and becoming grandparents.
