What Can Happen To An Aging Mind

Due to the advancement of magnetic resonance imaging, scientists have discovered significant changes in an aging mind. These are some of the findings that may be of interest to you:

(1) A slow but steady decline in short-term memory: such as opening the door of your refrigerator and then not knowing what you are looking for.

(2) A decline in verbal ability: such as not finding the right or exact word (even though it may be a simple and common word) to express yourself

(3) A decline in logical thinking: especially with numbers, such as difficulty with simple addition or subtraction

The above may occur in the 60s or 70s, although the conditions or symptoms may vary significantly in individuals.

The human brain has billions of cells, and only a fraction of it has been tapped into, so how does it explain the decline and malfunctioning of one of the most important human organs?

Along your life -- in particular in the latter half of it -- you may experience more grief, due to bereavement or loss of friends and loved ones. Yes, time may heal all wounds, but healing takes time (as much as two years for some individuals), and you may not have too much time left for one healing after another. The bottom line: your life may become more than grief. The moral lesson: be kind to yourself! Progress one day, and regress the next.

In addition to grief, another factor that may play havoc with your aging mind is stress. Evidently, stress increases with age:

(1) Your memory becomes more impaired, and you thus become more stressed in not finding what your need or expressing yourself efficiently. Learn to de-clutter your life so that it becomes more organized. If your physical environment is less cluttered, your mind may also become more organized. De-Clutter Fast show shows you how to organize your personal life for a healthy mind.

(2) Your health may start to decline, and medical conditions are stressful.

(3) Your financial health may also become another stress factor -- especially if you have a fixed income and you are confronted with the rising cost of inflation.

Do what you can to de-stress your life. Worrying won't solve the problem. Guided meditation is most effective in relaxing the aging mind. Spirituality is your best friend as you age. 

Mind Secrets Exposed: Learn the art of getting what you want out of life. If you find yourself facing constant frustration from never-ending problems in life, or you feel as though your life is a proverbial treadmill, not going anywhere. Now is the time to take charge of your life. It is all in your subconscious mind that is the real power center of your being and the "headquarters" of your body. Use state-of-the-art subliminal messages to transform your subconscious mind in order to change your conscious mind.
