Reading Time: 4 minutes Frequent dwelling on the past—even on positive memories—can actually accelerate the aging process!
Now, when I say ‘positive memories,’ I’m not talking about occasionally sharing some nostalgia with loved ones while viewing photos of a treasured vacation. I mean a regular and excessive habit of looking back on times when it seemed like things were better than they are now.

Reading Time: 6 minutes Although, most people would say they want to have less stress in their lives, there’s a weird addictive quality that accompanies the way we live with stress. If there’s nothing stressing us out we can even feel bored and start scanning our environment for something to worry about.

Reading Time: 6 minutes People constantly mistake me for someone much younger than 56, and remark on my youthful appearance. And it happens even more frequently since making some needed life changes, basically reinventing myself, in my early 50s.
So – what are these secret strategies?
Well, most of them have nothing to do with creams and potions and special vitamins, or even super foods, special exercise programs or any other conventional ‘Anti-Aging’ wisdom. In fact, inspired by Dr. Christiane Northrup, I’m trying to ditch the term ‘anti-aging’ completely – in favor of Ageless.
