Ageing is inevitable – but getting 'old' is optional! We can make a difference to our ageing process – just as we have to learn to grow up, so we have to learn to grow old. Here is a route map we can all follow to find a way through the changes we face as we age, and a toolkit of exercises to help us follow our chosen path and fulfil our potential. Ageing has got a really bad press but is it really as bad as much of the media make out? And is there anything we can do to make our later years happier and healthier? In this handbook Guy Robertson assembles the case for the defense and explodes some myths along the way. Getting older is not all bad! Indeed the reality is much more positive than many of us could imagine. Find here ten steps that anyone can take to improve the likelihood of living a happy and satisfying life in old age. Research shows that how we think about ageing can have a very significant impact on our health and wellbeing in later life. Concentrating on the psychological and emotional aspects of ageing, these clear practical exercises will empower the reader to engage in a programme of personal change.
