The more you use the digital, the more you feel integrated with the digital transformation, the more you are satisfied with its image and the more you feel young. Using the Internet, a Smartphone or a tablet makes it easier to integrate into society and to feel young. In particular by maintaining intellectual autonomy and curiosity. “Staying young is being up to date with your time” notes Dr. Benattar
Adopt the Right Philosophy
If people think they are old and fragile, they will act as if they were old and fragile. Staying young, or becoming one again, is also to understand that there is no age for many things. No, there is no age to picnic in the grass at the arrival of the beautiful days, there is no age to go dancing until the end of the night, there is no age to hum his favorite song in front of the mirror. So we get rid of these age-related prejudices, and we refuse to see his passions or his little pleasures go away with time. Believe it, the young spirit is reflected outside!
Work your sense of observation
“Observing helps to perceive the outside world to better apprehend him,” advises Dr. Benattar. At home, in the office, on the street, in transportation, or in a waiting room (in short, or you are), have fun looking for two or three items you’ve never noticed before and memorize their location. This will help your brain to pay attention to the environment in which it is located and to stay more alert. Be Aware!
