      Forgetful? Get a hobby!

      If you're of the baby boomer generation it could be easier than you think to stay sharp. How about a new hobby?

      R esearchers at the University of Texas at Dallas recruited about 220 older adults. Some learned things that were new and complicated, while others did more familiar activities.

      E veryone involved in the study committed to their routines for 15 hours a week for 3 months.

      R esearchers say the continuous mental work outs helped baby boomers maintain healthy, fine tuned minds.

      A couple examples? Photography, working out, painting even quilting all require focus and some activity. If you feel you need a group to do the activity stop by the Amarillo Citizens Association in downtown Amarillo. They have tons of activities daily that will be sure to keep you entertained and active!
