Want to feel decades younger? Try multitasking

Eye creams and exercising may help older adults feel 30 years younger, but so does multitasking, according to a newly released study. After a month and a half of learning numerous skills, like photography and speaking Spanish, older adults increased their cognitive abilities to match that of people three decades younger than them, researchers at the University of California at Riverside found. The participants in a control group who did not take any classes showed no change in cognitive abilities.
