Are you one of the millions of upbringers who enter the golden years? Be worried about maintaining your spiritual sharpness as you grow up. Problems like dementia, Alzheimer's disease, are just a few of the pathogenic diseases that many elderly people have to deal with daily. This article will provide you with the necessary information to help you be mentally fit when you grow old and to avoid some problems that often relate to aging diseases.
One of the reasons why many elderly people experience decreasing memory are related to the physiology of the brain and how it transforms short-term memory in the long-term memory. In the center of the brain is an area called the limbic system. The Limbic system is responsible for your emotional well-being. For example, it controls anger, aggression, thirst, hunger, lust and one part of the Limbic system, hippocampus, is closely related to long-term memory. Take some time to see how hippocampus affects your ability to maintain memory when you grow up.
Hippocampus is a small area and is shaped like a sea horse. Your difficulty is filtered through the hippocampus region. Experience that is of great emotional significance is important as a major event and transformed into longstanding memories. Think about how you can remember your first kiss, graduation, marriage or other emotionally important experience. The problem is that this structure is very small based on the volume of the brain. Every day millions of neurons die in the brain. Because the hippocampus is small, these dead nerve cells begin to grow as you age. Fortunately, a solution has been identified.
Long-term research in Baltimore and Seattle regarding aging investigated individuals who were 80 years of age or older. The research found that the elderly who read books received a much lower proportion of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. They felt that increased stimulation that comes from steady learning new things helped grow new nervous connections between the nerves that were still active. Think of it as a tree. If some branches of wood die, while the other articles grow many more leaves, these healthy articles begin to cover some of the actions that dead articles once had. The same is happening inside your brain. Continue reading and you help keep your brain young.
Speed reading can be a great help in keeping your brain involved in what you age. A year ago, I trained a 84-year-old woman named Ruth Lubin. She was literally the little old lady from Pasadena. At 84 she studied the belly dance on pleasure boats. Ruth was nice to be with. She learned to read on Saturday and called me on Sunday. She said she had read three books in three hours the day after learning to read speed. As she said, "I do not know how much more time I have left, but there is so much I still want to learn." Ruth is the perfect example of staying well mentally by continuing to study and learn and grow. Stimulating the brain by reading the speed book can be one of the best decisions that a child can do. It will help keep your mind spiritually and match many aging-related problems.
