Few minds wear out; more rust out.

“Few minds wear out; more rust out.” ~ Christian Nestell Bovee

Keeping your self and mind engaged and interested is paramount to a fundamentally happy life across the life span. This is what I think of the mental equivalent of WD-40. There are so many ways to do keep “lubricated”. Dive into learning something new, like a language exchange (a dear friend met her husband this way), how cook a new cuisine, read a book from a genre you don’t normally dive into, volunteer your time in way that exposes you to new skills and people (my academic, football loving husband volunteers with a therapeutic horse back riding program – an unexpected and wonderful thing)… the possibilities are unlimited. How many different ways can you think to do this?
