A revolutionary and empowering story is emerging: We actually have significant control over our aging process. John Kalb's exciting new book shows how millions of mature (age 50+) men and women can live lives of great health (physical, emotional, and spiritual) by understanding fundamental aspects of body, mind, and spirit in the second half of their lives.
Research has proven that positive emotions and healthy behaviors play a significant role in aging, and they can be increased for a better life. This means that successful aging is a self-fulfilling prophecy: Anticipating a positive future increases the likelihood we will experience it. Each of us must develop practical wisdom to know when to courageously maximize our functional abilities and when to serenely accept the inevitable losses that aging brings. Winning at aging is a journey not a destination and there are many pathways to success. Here is a book that will help you live life to the fullest and:
