The Keys To Aging In Happy And Healthy Ways, from Dr. Christiane Northrup

What are the keys to aging happily? Dr. Christiane Northrup says that getting older increases our value and competence. "Our culture is ageist," Dr. Northrup says, "it tells us that our best years are behind us -- but as we get older we can draw from the past. We can teach mindfulness, and we have a backlog of sometimes decades of information." Dr. Northrop says that it's important to learn that the best is ahead, to stop our ageist thoughts and work toward making ourselves healthier. According to Dr. Northrop, most aches and pains that we attribute to old age are actually due to lifestyle choices, and can be prevented!
