People always notice any changes in their appearance, but, unfortunately, they do not see the changes occurred inside of them.Yet if to leave these problems unattended, they may eventually face total deterioration of the mental activity.
Remember: from the age of 25, in case of intellectual inactivity the age has a merciless effect on the brain and may result in dementia.
Regardless your age, take a note of 10 signs of aging brain, and if you have at least some of them, it is high time to look out for yourself:
Keep it simple.
Nothing new can attract you.
"Mind like a sieve" is not just an idiom.
After watching some long films you can hardly remember names of characters or events from the beginning. You find these films too complicated and brain-boiling, and you prefer to relax watching a talk-show or primitive series instead.
Everyone owes you.
You build up relations with your close ones and acquaintances to fit your desires and needs and sincerely believe that the others must make concessions and adjust to your needs. Compromises are not for you.
You are an expert in any matter.
Even if the topic of the conversation is not close to you, you are furious defending your opinion and believe it to be right. You adore giving advice even if nobody asks for them.
No day without criticism.
You are annoyed with actions of other people; you often criticize others, yet do not allow any criticism to your address and respond to critical comments in an aggressive way.
Your life is like a groundhog day.
Every day you follow a monotonous plan and implement invented rituals. You have one route to work or to your favorite shop. Your day round is pragmatically formed, and you are disappointed if you have to make some changes to it. The same is true about the objects and order in your house; you do not allow any changes or rearrangements.
The past is better than the present.
You do not understand the modern world, you often refer to the past and use phrases like: “Everything was different …” or” We used to….”
You are not interested in interlocutors.
Speaking with people you never notice whether they are interested in this conversation. You discuss the topics which are interesting to you in the first place and often interrupt others.
You are always right.
You consider that your character and behavior have been formed and are unchangeable; you never apologize to other people and never consider that the quarrel was your fault.
Scientists will take care (a reference link to an article that a human can live for a thousand years) that people live for several hundred years, and we should train our brains today in order to witness new opportunities the science will offer. Fight procrastination.
Remember that the mental workload is as important as physical. Healthy mind means vast prospects and full life!
