Daily Uplifting Book Quote

Daily pressures like family squabbles, impossible bosses, too much traffic, noisy neighbors or overdue bills cause stress. Even changes in your sleep pattern, diet, exercise or the climate can create stress.

TRUE RADIANCE—10 Simple Steps to Age Gracefully, Healthfully, Peacefully & Happily

A Radio Interview

Mark Twain tells us that... Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. We all age, but do we need to look like we're aging? I don't think so. We have the power within us, and with a few simple lifestyle tweaks, to slow the aging process — look younger and feel healthier with each passing year.

With over 30 years research on longevity, high-level wellness, and anti-aging, I have gathered the best tips from around the world on how to truly enjoy the second half of your life. And for younger folks, these suggestions will even put more pizzazz into your 20s, 30s, and 40s.

On the national radio show, This Week in America, with host Ric Bratton, I share 10 effective, life-enriching tips to naturally slow down aging and create your best life.

One of the tips I discuss is about the healing power of gratitude. Regardless of the circumstances of your life or the losses you've suffered, gratitude can help you. When you find one thing, however small, to be thankful for and you hold that feeling for as little as 15 seconds, many subtle and beneficial physiological changes take place in your body:

  • Stress hormone levels of cortisol and norepinephrine decrease, creating a cascade of beneficial changes such as an enhanced immune system;
  • Coronary arteries relax, thus increasing the blood supply to your heart;
  • Heart rhythm becomes more harmonious, which positively affects your mood and all your organs;
  • Breathing becomes deeper, thus increasing the oxygen level of your tissues;
  • And so much more!

You don't stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing.
~ George Bernard Shaw

If I can challenge old ideas about aging, I will feel more and more invigorated. I want to represent this new way. I want to be a new version of the 70-year-old woman. Vital, strong, very physical, very agile. I think that the older I get, the more yoga I'm going to do.
~ Jamie Lee Curtis

It sometimes happens that a woman is handsomer at twenty-nine than she was ten years before; and, generally speaking, if there has been neither ill-health nor anxiety, it is a time of life at which scarcely any charm is lost.
~ Jane Austen

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become.
~ James Allen

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
~ Henry Ford

Youth has no age.
~ Pablo Picasso

You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.
~ Geroge Burns

The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything.
~ Oscar Wilde
