Cultivation of Wisdom, The Lifelong Learner

In recent years researchers have looked at positive, healthy aspects of the aging mind instead of just looking at pathology or what makes us sick in the mind. The cultivation of wisdom turns out to be a key to brains aging in a healthy manner. The old adage “use it or lose it” becomes a central maxim. 

  People are living longer than ever before.  This can be a mixed blessing.  Many uncomfortable changes occur in aging, but change can be good.  One of the most positive changes is in (what scientists call) crystalline and fluid intelligence … or what is commonly called wisdom. Living longer allows us more time to gain some level of insight into what makes this crazy, mixed up world tick. As we get older, we should be getting wiser.

Americans are Seeking Alternatives in Health Care

Having trouble getting in to see a real doctor lately? Join the club. In a recent poll conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H.
