Tune into this week’s Aging GreatFULLy© power-hour to discover The Longevity Secret: How to Live Happy, Healthy and Vibrant Into Your 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and Beyond, with the author of just that book, renowned psychologist, Dr. Noelle Nelson.

Dr. Nelson has authored multiple books on this subject, but her latest work is full of inspiration and insight, prompting readers to make the rest of the years the best of the years! Dr. Nelson researched older adults who continue to experience the sheer joy of wanting to do something-–and then doing it—those who don’t let anything get in their way like physical health, financial or other perceived limitations. She was on a quest to better understand what makes these “Amazings” different from the rest and even how we can be more like them when we reach their age and beyond!

In this empowering hour, she shares stories of many “Amazings” that can also be found in her Facebook page, called “Meet the Amazings” -- where she highlights older folks (some are in their 100's) doing interesting and fulfilling things. She sees “doing what you love” as the common thread in the over 600 people she’s featured. It has over 13,000 followers.

We discover that the “Amazings” share a common thread of being unstoppable in their quest to seize every ounce of life to the fullest, despite their individual challenges to overcome. They are living their purpose and chasing their passions and … enjoying the reward of longevity in the process.

In her book, The Longevity Secret, she reveals the findings of her research and offers multiple examples of how one can go about reaching their goals and the many benefits of doing so. She
has discovered some important secrets towards Aging GreatFULLy©, namely that "doing what you love is healthy for you" and shares that research repeatedly shows that people who invest themselves wholeheartedly in something they love, with no other goal but the pleasure of engaging in it (instead of money, fame or power), enjoy greater well-being, live happier and often longer, than those who don’t.

We will all agree that she too is an “Amazing” -- so tune into find out the exciting adventures she’s enjoying that make her life rich with fun and vitality! Listeners won’t want to find themselves sitting on the sidelines of life after this episode, as Dr. Nelson has a way of super-charging excitement to live more fully.
