The New Age of Aging

The New Age of Aging

Pro-Aging is the new and exciting way of defining midlife and beyond. It is the idea that no one age is better than another; that we age on a continuum with each year bringing a unique perspective and learning. I believe it’s that and so much more! For me, it’s making a conscious choice to […] Continue Reading

Is 60 Really the New 40?

Is 60 Really the New 40?

Is 60 really the new 40?? Or, is 60 simply the “new and improved 60”?? Can we really defy our age or anti age? Of course not! Then, why do we continually strive for that?? There are undeniable signs of aging that we can’t ignore; there are bodily changes, facial changes, mental and physical fitness […] Continue Reading
