Negative Thinking Could Be Harming Your Brain

If you are not a negative thinker you probably know somebody who his. Do you see the glass half-full or half-empty? How you perceive the world around you could be harming your mind and even putting you at higher risk for dementia, but perhaps that is negative thinking!

The University College in London completed a research study that suggests that repetitive negative thinking is linked to cognitive decline, an increased amount of harmful protein deposits in the brain, and, therefore a higher risk of dementia. Oh my.

There is no reason to suggest that the Brits would be any different than the Yanks. With greater longevity we already have a risk of dementia that increases as we get older. You certainly don't want to increase your chance of dementia and its impact on your family and finances.

Not to get you thinking negatively, but the financial costs and burdens of aging are adversely impacting many Americans' lives. The cost of long-term care services drain savings and create lifestyle and legacy issues. 

Plus, the consequences of your future long-term care will create stress and burdens on your family, often a daughter or daughter-in-law who may become your future caregiver.
