Aging is inevitable and unavoidable process that affects each and every one uniquely. The way in which you take care of yourself through the years both physically and mentally will impact the way in which you age. Aging 101/Keys to Embracing Aging is an interactive program that highlights 12 keys aimed to helping you grow old gracefully, successfully, and with increased longevity, based primarily on findings from the centenarian studies and the advice from those who participated. Centenarian studies demonstrate that life doesn't have to diminish with aging. In fact, 100 year olds are teaching us that the acceptance of aging can be positive, joyful, and exciting experience.
