Vibrant Aging | Thinking You Are Young Helps Make It So

RedTracker| Researchers tracking a group of 500 midlife men and women in 1995 and again in 2005 found that those who identified with being younger in 1995 maintained cognitive abilities 10 eyars later, than those who didn’t ‘think young’.

Researchers still aren’t certain which comes first: Does a person’s wellness and happiness affect their cognitive abilities or does a person’s cognitive ability contribute to their sense of wellness.

But the mind over matter connection is real in aging, although mindset should translate into action with exercise, learning and engaging in novel new adventures that promote brain growth.  Young-thinking people tend to take this path.
