Playing Bridge and the Secret to Longevity
2
A card game that has been around for centuries,
its no wonder there are still bridge enthusiasts
and clubs across the globe. But, what about this
brain game is so stimulating and challenging
that its been kept so popular all this
time?93-year-old bridge enthusiast, Maggy
Simony, says that bridge is just as strategic and
mentally-challenging as a game of chess, but its
also a social game, which we all know staying
socially connected is linked to healthy aging.
Bridge requires communication skills with your
partner and is said to be a synergistic
combination of the strategic and social aspects,
which is why its such a draw for so many people
across the nation, especially seniors.

Simony is convinced that bridge is among the
reasons she has aged well for so long, and she is
only one of the many examples of bridge players
enjoying remarkable longevity.Taking up bridge
is one of the best life decisions I ever madeI
wont be satisfied until learning to play bridge
is included in every article on how to age well,
she said.In the world of bridge, there is
social bridge and competitive bridge, which are
quite different. Competitive bridge players
typically play duplicate bridge, which is for
those who enjoy the mastery and victory rather
than playing in a living room over horderves, and
the rules are modified to minimize the element of
chance.

Many senior living communities have a bridge club
that meets weekly and has become a social
regiment for residents. Having a goal of trying
to always improve your bridge game is a great
way to stay socially engaged and connected and is
a healthy way to work on bettering yourself,
which could favorably influence the longevity and
vitality of bridge players nationwide!After
all, neurologist Dr. Claudia Kawas says that
bridge players are some of the most successful
agers on earth, and that it is very important
to use your brain, to keep challenging your mind,
but all mental activities may not be equal. Were
seeing some evidence that a social component may
be crucial, which is why bridge is the perfect
choice for all, no matter what stage of
retirement or seniorhood you are in.
