Your Mind Can Keep You Young

and you should know a lot more. Older people frequently suffer some loss of memory, but creative imagination is ageless. What's more, with age we develop insight and perspective. Our judgment and reasoning powers improve; so, thanks to a wealth of experience, does our strategy in tackling tough problems. In short, we acquire wisdom. That's why the old doctor, the veteran lawyer, the experienced craftsman, can usually hold his own against younger and more vigorous rivals.
Don't make the mistake of confusing emotional immaturity with true youthfulness. It takes a mature person to be really young. Men and women who refuse to grow up emotionally are usually the first ones to grow old; and the reason why, in later years, some people relapse into second childhood is that they never really emerged from their first. Masquerading as much younger than you are is a sure sign that you've not grown up emotionally.
My formula for staying young is simple: Concentrate on the part of you that's still young and growing-your brain. Keep your mind awake and you'll stay young all over. These are exciting times. Take an interest in the world around you. And make a point of learning at least one new thing every day.
Above all, don't "settle down." Psychologists are accustomed to seeing two contrasting personality types develop in the middle 3o's. Some men and women, although keen about their families and jobs, are constantly broadening their other interests. They keep up with the newspapers and magazines; they busy themselves with creative hobbies, preferably ones that use their hands as well as brains.
Another man begins, at 35, to slump into a dull but comfortable routine. Day after day he does his job, comes home, has dinner, glances at the comic strips or sporting page, fiddles with the radio and goes to bed. His wife does the housework, looks after the children, listens to soap operas, reads an occasional love story and attends a bridge club.
People of the first type grow younger with increasing years.
