Joyful Ageing: Keep Learning

Older adults are not that good with technology, and that leads to an increased feeling of disconnection, and even doubt and disempowerment.

Once they learn the tech skill sets, senior citizens feel an increased cognitive function, interpersonal skills, and a sense of freedom and independence.

Attending cultural events, social activities church, movies, sporting events, or cards is said to decrease the mortality rate among senior citizens.

Ageing has often been associated with negative tropes, like calling the empty home(due to the children going away to start their own life) an empty nest.

We are always as young as we would ever be in the course of our lives.

Our brain shrinks as we age, and exercise prevents that from happening as fast as it would if one was living a sedentary life.

We have mistakenly made ageing, a natural process, into a battle, something that we have to defeat and conquer.

An intriguing experiment called the Time Warp involves being in a special zone where everything is as it was a few decades ago. Gadgets, furniture, news and sports, photos and surroundings, all create an illusion of being in a different era, like the 70s.

Seeking out experiences of awe and wonder, like a long stroll in nature, can increase our happiness levels. Smiling more often and more intensely has the same positive effect on older adults.
