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:
- 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!
