Will We Live Longer if We Think Younger? - Mind and Mental 3

Time fly so fast for some people, but not for others. Busy without stress persons tend to think what was happen 10 or 20 years ago like just yesterday.

Luckily if the people keep their mindset or feeling like they are young or feel forever young, then will obtain many advantages compare to the same age people, but feel they are older.

Scientists from German Centre of Gerontology (News Release from American Psycological Association, 6 May 2021) said that there are a lot of benefits to feel younger, especially for old people.

Yes, this is a “subjective” feeling, but effect is very positive. Several health (physical and mental) gains include:

- less visiting to the hospital
- stronger thinking skills
- less inflammation
- improving well being
- longer lifespan

We might wonder why there is connection between feeling younger and live healthy (longer)?

First, scientist found that stress people, especially to middle age and older persons tend to decline their health.

Then, declining process can be reduced if persons feel they are younger than their true age.

This subjective feeling give some degree of protection and be a kind of stress buffer.

Hence, let’s think younger to live longer and healthier!

  1. There is a definite link to feeling younger and living better! I actually feel younger now approaching 50 than I did in my 30s due to healthy living and stress reduction.

  5. Very interesting. It is strange when the mind and the body don't age at the same rate and we feel younger or older than we are.

  10. It is quite a paradox. Such a wonderful post. Think positive and keep smiling. Just stay away from those bad things you might have started young like smoking and drinking. Sometimes, I think the key is..never stop learning.

  19. So true! As they say, you're only as old as you feel. As always, thanks for the reminder to stay positive, especially in these trying times. :)

  20. Absolutely, Evi. Living joyfully and creatively helps. Youth is not a question that has to do strictly with age but with the worldview you have about what surrounds you and what happens within you. My favorite Bob Dylan song, My Back Pages, says in its chorus: “but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now…”

  22. There's some real truth in it. If you can ignore the betrayal of the body (wrinkles,joint pain etc..) than you're on the way of successfully defying age.
