The elderly need to use the body brain for longevity
I was born in April 1928. I am now over 72 years old, but I am healthy and full.
I swim all the year round and can swim for half an hour every time I go into the water.
The brain is also useful, dozens of common phone numbers can be memorized.
I am learning French and often recite some French essays.
I have the confidence to live a healthy and long life, as long as there is no cancer.
How can the elderly achieve a healthy and long life, and have a certain quality of life?
My experience is: life is in motion.
This is an old saying, but the sentence is especially important for the elderly.
Our current life (especially in large and medium-sized cities) generally does not lack food and drink, no shortage of nutrition, lack of exercise, and older people are easier.
Many elderly people mistakenly believe that they are old and weak, not suitable for physical exercise, and even with the help of others, they do not actively move their bodies and move their hands.
Due to lack of exercise, resulting in slight accumulation, high blood lipids, excessive body weight, severe liver increase, leading to high blood pressure, high blood pressure, high blood pressure, high blood cerebrovascular disease, the incidence of cerebrovascular disease, causing huge health and life for the elderlyThreat.
And these can be controlled until they return to normal by systematically participating in different forms of physical exercise, as well as appropriate dietary adjustments.
Therefore, the maxim I can apply to the elderly is that “sports are more important than eating.
“If you choose between eating and exercising, I would rather eat less than one meal and not participate in a sport less.”
Of course, the exercise should be moderate, that is, the effort should be done.
Don’t take too much exercise and competition.
Any form of incompetent exercise is good for the health of the elderly, such as swimming, tai chi, doing eight sections of brocade, jumping ballroom dancing, twisting Yangko, walking, climbing and so on.
Life lies in the movement of the brain.
Older people need to exercise and exercise their brains.
Some older people think that they are old, their brains are not easy to use, they are too lazy to use their brains, which will speed up their brains, degeneration, and even early dementia.
The human brain is like the muscles of a person, and it is also used to retreat.
Older people should overcome the laziness of their brains and force themselves to use their brains.
Any activity that uses the brain is good for the body, such as chess, reading books and newspapers, using a computer or learning a foreign language.
And remember something with your brain.
I have been learning French since 1997 (I have a foundation in English) and now I am able to absorb dictionary translations.
I have translated more than 10,000 words of medical materials.
Also often recite some French essays, such as the famous French writer Alphonse?
The famous book “The Last Lesson” written by Dud, we read the English translation of this article when we were learning English in middle school.
Everyone else asked me strangely: “Why do you still want to learn French, do you want to go abroad?
“To be honest, I feel at home, in my own home, where I am free and comfortable.”
You can only stay in foreign countries and cannot live permanently.
I often replied straight away: “I learned French to train my brain.
“By learning a foreign language, I exercised my brain power, enhanced my memory, and increased my cultural knowledge, enriched my life, and enhanced my confidence in health and longevity.”
Therefore, I still have a maxim, that is, for the elderly, “the brain is also more important than eating.
“You can eat a meal less, or eat a meal in a hurry, but don’t use your brain for two days, don’t read the book, don’t read the newspaper, and confuse the day.”
Older friends, hurry up with the brains you haven’t used for many years, where you have a wealth of life experience and knowledge accumulation, and there is plenty of room for development and utilization.
It’s never too late to exercise your brain.
If you re-actively use your brain, you will feel that your brain is not stupid, even flexible, and useful, which will increase your confidence and fun in your future life. However, only the physical exercise of the brain is not enough, there are some other measures to improve physical health, such as: (1) to improve emotional intelligence, enhance the ability to adapt to the outside world after entering old age.
Every family has a difficult experience, but each family has something to be happy about.
Human happiness is not directly proportional to his wealth and power.
The distress of the rich and powerful is not necessarily less than the average person, and may be more.
Even the US president has his own inexhaustible worries, sometimes comparing the White House to a “living prison.”
It is more than enough to eliminate the troubles and enjoy yourself.
(2) Don’t close yourself and keep yourself in the circle of the self or family, the old man.
Participate in some social activities as much as possible, make more friends, have old friends and old friends, have young people and even children friends, children and grandchildren, students, etc. Their childishness and vitality can wash our anger.
(3) Develop a scientifically sound living system and habits.
Everyone can have a rhythmic life system and habits that suit their age, physique, economic situation, and habits. They cannot be forced to be uniform.
However, in the case of the elderly, it is recommended to play less mahjong (Chinese medicine cloud sedentary wounds), less to watch TV, and not to use TV as the main pastime.
When people watch TV, the brain enters the state, it is passive to accept external stimuli without brains, and can not make the brain get any exercise.
Also take less medicine.
Medicine can also cure diseases.
Older people are more ill, and they cannot all be cured by taking medicine.
Medicine can’t be eaten, but you can’t eat more.
It is necessary to rely on exercise, health care to prevent disease and even cure diseases.
