What is Aging Well News About?
I am so happy that you are interested in finding out more about the newsletter. Welcome!
Articles typically focus on exercise, managing illnesses, and good nutrition. Another popular approach suggests following the six dimensions of wellness. Both offer excellent advice.
The newsletter proposes that additional factors and circumstances play are relevant. Factors such as underlying beliefs and perceptions that impact choices and decisions. Situations such as taking care of a loved one or experiencing chronic disease.
In Aging Well News, we take what is known a step further. I ask you to look into your willingness to change unhelpful beliefs and habits, to accept what is now normal, and to manage the various practical issues that arise.
This will take “emotional labor”- honestly looking at the less identified underlying demands of aging well. Whether you want to take that journey or not is your choice. But you will have the tools to do so if you want.
Are you up for the challenge? Then I offer you this free subscription filled with helpful ideas and tips for you to age well.
More about Me
I am an 83-year-old woman who lives in a cozy apartment in Northern California with her two rescue cats, Bailey and Bella. I have a Ph.D. in Psychology and am a licensed mental health professional with years of experience. When my husband of 60 years was diagnosed with dementia, I began researching how older people could deal with challenging circumstances and still age well.
We raised two children and two grandsons, moved across the country, and made a good life for ourselves – we were a team during our marriage. Then I was his primary care provider until he moved into a memory care facility. While there, he contracted COVID-19 and died.
During that time and now, I dig deep within myself and make changes as I age well - on my own.
I decided to share my journey and help others age well – no matter what in my book Aging Well - 30 Lessons for Making the Most of Your Later Years. This newsletter is a supplement to the book.
You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition goes directly to your inbox, when you subscribe to the free newsletter.
While the newsletter will always be free, there may be a paid subscription in the future with additional features. All proceeds will go to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Be Part of the Community
To age well, we need to change the conversation from the ordinary and known to look at relevant underlying issues. Be part of a community of people who share your interests.
My best to you,
