This is a 2-week class.

Do you feel too young to get old? What exactly is healthy aging? The answers are different for people at different stages of life. This 2-session class will cover ways to live longer and better, based on the latest research by experts in the field of growing older.

Session 1 will focus on ways of helping you take charge of your body and mind. What specific kind of exercise do you need to emphasize in your fitness program? What specific kinds of food do you need to be eating? What can you do to remain mentally sharp?

Session 2 will focus on taking charge of your life. What myths do you have about getting older? Are telomeres the key to aging? What do you need to relinquish, and to what do you want to move on? What does generativity versus stagnation mean to you? If youth, health, beauty, and power supposedly recede as you get older, why do studies tell us older people are the happiest age group of all? This paradox of aging and other topics will be explored.

Instructor: Joyce Hanna, MA, MS, Assocociate Director of HIP, exercise physiologist and nutritionist.
