THOUGHT CAN PREVENT AGING? The power of the mind could prevent you from aging. Researchers say that those who think and dress in a youthful way are healthier than those who act their age. In one experiment, elderly men were transported back to 1959 for a week. They lived in accommodation fitted out in the decor of the Fifties, were played TV shows and music of the time and told to talk and act as if they were living then. By the end of the week, the men were perceived to look around three years younger. Their hearing and eyesight improved, arthritic joints were more flexible, muscles were stronger and minds sharper.
The line that really stands out to me is: those who think and dress in a youthful way are healthier than those who act their age.
I can't tell you the number of times someone's told me to grow up and act my age. Well, you know what I say to that? NA NA NA NA NA, I CAN'T HEAR YOU! NA NA NA NA NA, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!! :)
