This is easy topic to talk about but you have to
work at it to make it happen. Although it becomes easier with
practice. You can be 13, 30 or 3 times 30, you need to keep
your mind sharp and young. Do you come up blank thoughts? Do
you forget the point you wanted to make? Promote your memory,
thought processes and concentration by doing things that requires
cognitive thinking. After we leave school for our career we
tend to forget our favorite subjects. Check out books on your
favorite subject from the library and study them. Or better yet
tutor a student in your that subject. You will be helping a
student learn and exercise your brain at the same time.
Reading inspirational books that will get you excited and looking
forward to the future. Play games with family and friends like
Chess, Mexican Train or Trivia games. Work crossword puzzles
or create crossword puzzles. Keep your mind stimulated with
new experiences and interactions with others. Be sure to stay
excited about learning something new and your mind will remain
active and you can feel as young as possibly no matter your age.
I was told some years ago that 2 hours of strict mental labor was

At best you will either prove or disprove this statement in your own

special things that you have neglected like rearranging the living
room so that you can get the remote first.
