Well I’m getting older. No, I’m not in denial. 🙂 I recognize it and some days I’m o.k. with it and other days, I’m just not. On those days, I try not to think about it and instead relish in the thoughts that I’m wiser and smarter than the younger generation. 😉
However, one of the reasons I can say this is that I keep mentally and physically active. In the years to come as we approach middle age, we definitely lose track of things and forget things more often.
It’s part of the aging process. Can’t be helped. It is what it is, right? But we can keep working to keep ourselves sharp.
Our minds, no matter the age, can begin to deteriorate if it is not used often. So keeping mentally active is imperative.
There are multiple methods in order to keep our mind sharp, most of which involves practicing mental exercises.
There are many, many ways. I, for one, am a dancer. I also choreograph as well. So I exercise my mind constantly by learning new dances and creating new dances, going to events and exercising my body, as well as my mind! Learning these dances keeps me mentally active and it is challenging, but I love it. 🙂
