Aging Well - What's It All About?
Thanks so much for your interest in the Aging Well News newsletter. My goal is to help readers age well despite life’s circumstances.
Typically, articles about aging focus on exercise, managing illnesses, or the six dimensions of wellness. All of which is sound advice.
This newsletter proposes that additional factors and circumstances play a role, and you “should”consider them. Factors such as underlying beliefs and perceptions that impact choices and decisions. Situations include
dealing with the challenges of a changing world
In Aging Well News, we look at unhelpful beliefs and habits, encourage accepting what is true now, and provide tips for managing practical issues.
This approach 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 choose.
Are you up for the challenge? Then I offer you this free subscription filled with helpful ideas and tips for you to age well.
About The Author
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 looking for ways to manage this challenging situation 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 must dig deep within myself and make changes as I age well - on my own for the first time.
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. The newsletter is a supplement to the book.
I plan to post a new article weekly on relevant topics. If you choose to subscribe to the free newsletter, I will email the latest post to you.
