The third act of your life is not destined to be a downward spiral into old age, but rather an upward arc of growth & expansion. And, like anything else, it takes a certain amount of effort – of intention – to create the life you want.
In The Art of Living Longer lectures, you will learn the latest science, research, tips and tools to help you create a vibrant third act of life. Along with the research, we cover the subject of conscious aging, something critical to our emotional, physical and spiritual health. Conscious Aging includes many aspects of wellness in our pursuit of vital aging. A key component of that is mindfulness. Mindfulness keeps us present, right here, right now. The past is a memory. The future is a promise. The only thing that is real is the here and now. Breathe it in. Take notice of the sounds and smells around you. Feel your feet on the ground or your body on the bed or chair. Keep breathing. Click here and read about Decluttering Your Mind.
The Art of Living Longer is also about learning from the cultures in the world that have the greatest longevity.

You want to live a long, healthy and happy life. Of course you do! Everyone does. What if I were to tell you that your lifestyle choices are more important to your health than your heredity, and that the development of disease (or lack thereof) is very much in your control? Would you believe me?
The latest research shows just that. The study of epigenetics can be loosely summarized as ‘lifestyle trumps genetics’. Think about that. The lifestyle choices you make can activate or bypass genetic codes for cancer, diabetes, heart disease and more. Fried vs baked food? Sedentary vs active lifestyle? Organic vs chemically treated food?
Add to that the wisdom found in the Blue Zones research that summarizes the wisdom found in five places on the planet where people simply live longer than we do. Not only do they live longer… they are generally healthier too.
Now, when we add in the science of neuroplasticity that has shown that any person with reasonable cognitive functioning can and will create new memories, i.e. learn new things is a thrilling predictor of our future. Of course, learning will happen providing two things occur.
