Ageing Successfully by Beth Lueders
Brush and floss your teeth. Save and invest your money wisely. Eat nutritiously. Stay active. Surround yourself with caring, positive people. The list goes on for sound advice on how to prepare for “successful ageing,” a term credited to Dr. John Wallis Rowe, M.D. and psychology and public health professor Robert Kahn, Ph.D.
In their Successful Ageing book, Rowe and Kahn noted that flourishing as you age includes: 1) Safeguarding your physical health and avoiding illness, disease and disability, 2) Maintaining solid cognitive and physical abilities, and 3) Staying actively engaged with life and relationships.
