There is no single formula to successful aging, but UCLA psychology professor Alan D. Castel provides a comprehensive and practical guide for shaping a life that is joyful, productive, healthy and meaningful. He debunks negative myths and self-defeating mind-sets about aging ... He reviews research studies that suggest that many people are happiest between the ages of 50 and 70 - sense of contentment resulting from some combination of a lessened financial burden due to an emptied nest, the opportunity to do something new and different in retirement, and a sense of gratitude for being able to look back on the joys and accomplishments of a lifetime. He provides compelling evidence that staying active physically helps us remain sharp mentally. Perhaps his most important advice is that youre never too young to develop habits that can help sustain healthy aging in the future. * Wall Street Journal *
