If You Want to Stay Young Forever, Try Acting Like a Cat

By Mustafa Gatollari

Researchers have discovered that the key to staying young has just as much to do with keeping not just your body sharp but your mind as well. In layman's term: if you want to stay young, you've got to think young.

Now before you think that means obsessing over any cute person who so much looks your way at the mall or thinking that your parents are ruining your lives, it actually has more to do with your desire to learn new things and constantly pushing yourself in that direction is what ultimately keeps you younger longer.

The more genuinely curious and interested you are in something, the better off you'll be, according to latest studies from the British Psychological Science Post. The hypothesis is that people with higher IQs live longer, however it's much more complex than just saying "well looks like stupid people are screwed."
