What's your brain age? Are you still using your brain effectively? Use it or lose it! Right?
We all age differently, and yes, when you are old-old, into advanced ages, your brain does slow down a bit... but LOOK at the huge accomplishments these well-known folks achieved at older ages!
Please don't think about how old you and your brain is.. just jump in there and DO whatever it is you choose to do... They did!
Just LOOK at the accomplishments of these seniors... quite amazing! Society tends to think of seniors as no longer having the creativity or abilities they previously had, but that concept is quite false!
