Zestful Aging; Simple and Sensible Practices to Enhance Health Over 50
What is the bottom line when it comes to healthy behaviors that impact aging and longevity? Why do the recommendations on healthy habits change so rapidly? How can we cut through the fads and the hype and focus on what’s sensible and effective?
Based on the Harvard Study of Adult Development, the longest study of aging to date, this talk will provide a coherent summary of what behaviors really matter for health and longevity, and positively influence the “compression of mortality.” Because emotional health and physical health are inextricably linked, the talk will draw on my 25 year long experience as a psychotherapist exploring the psychological challenges of the third chapter with clients. It will also highlight the unique benefits and advantages of being over 50. Stress reduction will be emphasized.
Participants will leave with actionable tools to enhance their short term and long term health, and those of the people they care for.
