For many years, I believed that getting old meant things went downhill. Your brain shrinks, you don’t learn as quickly, you forget stuff, your skin sags and you don’t move like you used to.
After my Feldenkrais training, I turned that belief on its head. Now my idea of aging is a dynamic process where we CAN learn new things (and remember them), move well and look fabulous, regardless of age.
It’s great to see that the latest neuroscience research supports this idea too. Fo...r the first time, scientists have shown the adult brain is able to generate new nerve cells throughout life. A big help for learning and memory!
