There is an identity crisis that comes with change in life because of the cultural norm of isolation and uselessness that comes to certain people, and people in their senior years are often affected. So it is important to let more people know that retirement isn’t spelling death in slow motion. Folks don’t need to die shortly after retirement when they get involved in artistic activities. These activities may help ward off diseases and cognitive decline while it strengthens their mental muscle and social health.
The human brain is designed to grow and change throughout your life. It gets better with age. The more you exercise your brain, the more you build connections. Aging experts say that writing, painting, and music can help you live longer or at least, help you stay active in your senior years. If you are 65 years old – or above – you might want to participate in some cultural and artistic activities to ward off diseases and cognitive decline.
So, which art would you like to participate in?
All you need to do is to ask yourself, “What does my inner voice need?” As we already know, the major thing that invites creativity into our lives is taking risks. It will allow you to open up yourself and share your knowledge. You can share your story and transmit everything that has happened to you in life.
