like fine, old wine - we get better with time

From Ronni Bennett at As Time Goes By comes this recap of a couple of articles on aging from Time and Newsweek:

Just what I’ve been saying here for two years, and because that’s what impresses people, I like having my observations supported by folks with letters behind their names. All this throws a big, fat monkey-wrench into every age-discriminatory practice in the land.

But none of this means elders can sit back and rest on our brainy behinds. As with our bodies, it’s a “use it or lose it” proposition and Dr. Cohen repeats what we all know, but don’t always practice:

  • Exercise physically
  • Exercise mentally
  • Pick challenging leisure activities
  • Establish strong social networks
As 2006 starts, have you got a plan to tackle these four bullet points?
