Your Mind Can Keep You Young

THE FEAR of growing old can strike you at almost any age. As a consulting psychologist, specializing in the problems of the aged, I find that a goodly percentage of my clients are still in their 30's-men and women who are already worried by the specter of approaching age and want to learn how to head it off. What I tell them can be read with profit by anyone from 17 to 70 who's interested in remaining young.
But before I give you my formula perhaps we'd best define our terms. Age can't be measured by the number of your birthdays. In the first place, biological time isn't at all the same thing as clock time. As the years pile up, biological time slows down; the older you are, the more slowly you age. Physically, you don't change as much from 30 to qo as you did from 25 to 30; from 55 to 75 as from 40 to 55.
Another reason why the calendar furnishes a false clue to age is that different parts of you grow old at different rates. Your eyes began to age at ten; your hearing around 20. By 30 your muscular strength, reaction time and reproductive powers have all passed their peak.
On the other hand, your mind is still young and growing at 50; your brain doesn't reach its zenith until ten years after that. And from 60 on, mental efficiency declines very slowly to the age of 80.
At 8o you can be just as productive mentally as you were at 30
