You are never too old to learn something new. Learning keeps your brain stimulated and growing throughout your life. It’s never too late to start doing what you want to do—creativity and innovation don’t come with an expiration date. You can still accomplish your dreams. Don’t wait—get started now. Here are some tips for helping you continue to learn, regardless of your age:
- Read – it improves and creates new neural connections in your brain at any age. Good books can transport you into a world where you’ll experience things you never have before.
- Visualize – this is similar to “day dreaming” which is a great way to increase your memory and your capacity to store information. Images are easier to store and recall than words.
- Learn a new language – it improves your memory and other cognitive abilities. With internet and translator apps it has never been easier.
- Learn to play a musical instrument – all you need is willpower and a commitment to start. Studies show that after just a few months of lessons, adults of all ages develop greater verbal fluency and faster cognitive processing.
