Speak Diversely and Improve Health

By Tom Herrin

More than likely, one of the last things on the minds of most people as to ways to improve their health would be to learn more languages.  At first thought, it does seem to be a somewhat odd mix.  It is important to consider the obvious fact that it must require some ability to perform mentally.  Apparently people who truly make the effort to learn another language not only boost their communication skills and marketability, but they also may do a few other things to benefit their overall health.  It may be a pretty good way to accomplish several things with one unit of effort.  

Help Delay Onset of Dementia

Many people are concerned today about various kinds of dementia.  It has been shown to rob individuals of their mental capacities and destroy communication among those affected.  According to some studies, those who learn another language seem to be able to delay the average onset of dementia as much as five years.  This is a pretty significant figure, and it seems to fit well with the notion that using the mind to do more complex tasks may be much like exercising the body.  It can help to develop it and keep it working better, longer, and more efficiently.

Is Attention Span a Problem for You?

There are many conditions that appear to be related to issues with the attention span.  It is known to be a problem for many children and adults alike.  It would certainly make sense that those who can speak more than one language must be able to focus intently in order to make that switch smoothly.  This should obviously be able to carry over to other areas.  Developing a pattern of such behavior may become a part of good mental practice.

Accomplish Multiple Things

Learning another language can simply be a good exercise for anyone.  The world is becoming increasingly smaller, in a sense, as it is so easy to communicate anywhere at any time.  As we learn another language, we may improve our potential in business, education, and several other areas.  As I have begun, again, to learn another language, I have found that I simply feel better about my own abilities.  I no longer have as much fear of trying to communicate with others and failing.  I am hopeful it will work for other areas as well.
