Here’s Why Your Best Days Are Still Ahead!
over the hill: too old to be competent or successful; past one’s prime
Many believe that getting older means getting worse at things. But did you know, sometimes, it’s the opposite?
Daniel Levitin, a professor of neuroscience, says we can still learn new things even when we get older. “Contrary to popular myth, we never stop learning or growing new brain connections.” Age can bring experience, focus, and knowledge that can help in many situations.
As we age, we become better at understanding other people’s feelings. In a test where people guessed strangers’ emotions, the highest scores came from those 40 and up.
According to surveys, self-esteem often peaks between ages 50 and 70. We also get better at math around 50 and solving vocabulary puzzles at 65.
People over 60 are often kinder and more understanding. And guess when people feel happiest? At age 82!
So, don’t worry about being over the hill. Some things just get better with age!
1. Jane thought she was over the hill at 50, but then she started a new business.
2. Some say he’s over the hill as an athlete, but he still wins games for his team.
3. Even if people say I’m over the hill, I believe my best years are still to come.
