An era of unprecedented longevity

A funny thing happened on the road to perfection. Suddenly, enjoying your exercise routine is more important than going for the burn. Meditation is edging out the shrink’s couch. And trying to turn back the clock is passé as a quiet revolution emphasizes that well-being is the key to quality of life and peace of mind. 

“I like to call it ‘pro-aging’ or ‘successful aging,'” says Miriam Nelson, an associate professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in Boston.

“There are still those who panic about getting older and get depressed with each passing year. Then there is another, growing group of people who are thinking about what they can do to be as vigorous as possible to reduce their incidence of age-related disease by eating well, exercising, managing stress and being happy and connected.”
