Using Technology To Stay Sharp As We Age

It’s can be hard these days to keep up with technology – every day we see the next generation of a device, app, etc. being rolled out, and at first glance it can seem like a daunting task to keep it all in order. This is especially true for some of the older folks who remember a time before every household had a computer and every teenager had a cell phone. Instead of shying away from technology as we age, however, we should be embracing learning about it as a great opportunity.

Staying active as we grow older is a hugely important part of aging in a healthy way, and this is true both of engaging in physical activity and of maximizing your intellectual stimulation. Whether you are reading the news on an app on your smartphone, connecting with old and new friends on Social Media, writing about your favorite sports team on your blog, learning how to make a website, or any number of other activities, interacting with technology is an amazing way to keep your brain working and stimulated.

Continuing to stay mentally active is important, and if you don’t know how to do that using technology, now is the time to learn!
