SENIOR MOMENT? NO INFORMATION OVERLOAD!

 

scan0001-2If forgetting something is a senior moment than a lot of young people have senior moments —-  because they too forget things!

But their busy lives gives them a pass, whereas when an older person doesn’t remember it is seen as a result of being older. I think the truth, for young and old, lies somewhere in the middle. The constant bombardment of the news media, new inventions from Silicone Valley, advertisements, as well as the attachment to our new life lines like the iPhone, Smart Phone, Kindle, Podcast, Facebook, and many more I am not even aware of, are like an explosions around us. And often this new information is valid today and gone tomorrow.

A study done by Dr. Michael Remscar of the University of Tubingen in Germany reassures us, quote:

People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more in information in their brains. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so too, do humans take longer to access information when their brains are full.

Our brains are not just full they are overloaded and attacked on a daily basis. And not being able to take it all in, not being able to process it all, makes older people feel like their brains are not function as before.

Before was different. The world has changed and as hard as we try to take it all in, there will be moments for everybody – young and old – that will seem like a senior moment but are just an overload in your mental computer.

  2. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
    one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything
    you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad
    so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    1. I don’t know what to tell you because I don’t have any spam at all –
      But I don’t know why not because on my other blog I do – my experience
      in the past was that when I had a lot of spam and I deleted it after
      a while it stopped – just keep deleting – I know it can be very annoying
      or contact wordpress and ask for help.
      Thank you for reading my blog – what is your blog?
