First I lost a brand new purple dress I just bought in my own closet. Went to get dressed for work, and spent an hour flipping through each and every piece of my clothing over and over and over. No dress. Incredulous! I decided to try my daughters closet. There it was. I blamed my daughter for ruining my day. She is too thin to want to borrow my dress and she had no idea what I was talking about. WOW. Could I have put the dress in there?
Two days ago I was on the train platform. I bought a ticket from the ticket machine and lost it within 2 seconds. I had no memory of taking it out of the machine and wondered if I fact ever finished the automated prompts. I thought I did. I searched my purse frantically and no ticket. So I took out my credit card and did it all over again. On the train in I found my original ticket.
There are other bimbos just peaking now too I see. At dinner the other night, my girlfriend Ellen lost $120.00 cash while paying the bill. We all frantically searched the banquette to no avail and reported the loss to the manager. She found the money in her purse when she got home.
For years scientist thought we lost brain cells as we aged. NOPE Fact is we keep most of them as long as we live. The key is to keep the ones you have in shape!
Hips Don't Lie (Shakira Shakira) And Neither Does Your Hippocampus. ( Sorry No Shakira). The hippocampus is the part of your brain that is KEY to memory function and it shrinks with age.The larger your hippocampus the younger your brain age. So, how do we build it up ? Regular Cardio Exercise!
Last April ,the AARP Bulletin published a piece called 'Put your Brain To Work' by Barbara Strauch the deputy science editor at the NY Times, who wrote "The Secret Life Of The Grown Up Brain". She reported that in addition to exercise to keep our brains sharp, we must also move beyond just recalling information that we already know and push our brains to embrace the new! That means anything that gets us out of our comfort zones. Things like learning to play an instrument, taking a new route to work, and making new friends. (Why not make some new bimbo friends with the babe members here on Still A Babe.com? )
By middle age we have developed millions of connected pathways in our brains, she said. Barbara Strauch adds, that these well worn paths can help us size up familiar situations and reach solutions faster than our younger peers BUT if we always use the same routes to process information our brains may not get the stimulation they need to flourish.
We must shake up the cognitive" and force ourselves to seek in new directions! Or screw that idea and just sing along with Award -Winning Cabaret Singer Pam Peterson In Her Funny Parody About The Challenges Of An Aging Memory.
Or we can just keep losing stuff in our purses.
Any other babe bimbos out there?
