Myths about Aging

There are numerous myths that are linked to aging. A lot of the time people believe these myths and start thinking of it as an aging process. These myths are not the real cause of aging, and we can discuss broadly what these myths related to aging are:

A study was conducted where people at the age 70 plus are given a workout plan. By the end of their workout program, it was observed that their muscles are stronger than before.

Myth: Getting Older Makes People Depressed

Depression is not something that is found in older people only. These days it can be easily found in people of any age. As depression is becoming more common day by day, treatment is also more widely available now, and is becoming advanced. It is easy to treat depression only if people admit that they need help. The depression gets worst because people refuse to get it treated and it further develops memory and learning problems.

Painting, gardening, and doing other creative arts lets you stay active and sane. It helps people divert their attention away from the thoughts they may have concerned their body aging. A study had a group of older people join a choir. It was noted that the older people felt less depressed more active and happier by the end of the study.

Myth: Your Brain Shrinks with Your Age

The hippocampus, a part of the brain responsible for memory was said to be smaller in older people as compared to younger people. Later, a study was conducted where Dr. Lupien scanned the brains of people in the age bracket of 18-84. The results showed that people from 18-24 years of age had smaller hippocampuses than of the ones in some adults. Hence, it was concluded that the shrinking of the hippocampus was not due to ageing but due to stress.
