Amazing Aging

David Buswell, MD at The Amazing Ageing Company wrote a book about aging and I thought it was interesting and so do others, here is a review of the book.

As the blurb on Amazon says:
"'Amazing Ageing' is the must-have psychological survival manual for people approaching older age. When you buy this book you will discover that: 1) Ageing is an opportunity for inner growth. 2) Amazing Ageing can be achieved by making conscious choices, by letting go, by accepting your circumstances and by being grateful. 3) You can shed the shackles of the past and mature into Amazing Ageing by being positive, being realistic, taking action, being flexible and by discarding redundant rules. This is not a book about dementia or dying or about delaying the effects of ageing through lifestyle, diet, exercise. It is a highly practical book about living, which informs through a combination of explanation (i.e. what to do) and experiential exercises (i.e. how to do it). The exercises are drawn from Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Psychosynthesis and Buddhism. If you are 50+ and have an interest in your own development, this book is for you. It is also essential reading for the employees and volunteers of organisations and charities which work with older people, for Care or Retirement Homes, local councils and others with responsibility for the welfare of the elderly, and for therapists, counsellors, coaches and health professionals."

You may be interested in this book if you have difficulties with ageing or know people who do have this problem.

There is also a website dedicated to Amazing Aging that is not affiliated with the book but it also has some good ideas on how to age gracefully. 

Here is a great video on how to age gracefully and enjoy life. This 88 yr old lady is the perfect example of It Ain't the Age, It's the Attitude! She's moving and grooving to the music and showing her joy in life & living! I just had to share!
