Lesson 4 -Eat for the Long Run

America's youth-focused culture has made it hard for many of us to feel good about the aging process. For example, we commonly want others to believe we are younger than out true age. It is interesting to consider that in some Eastern countries, older people feel more respected and beloved for their wisdom and contributions. When asked their age, people in Asia, unlike in America, will likely add a few years.

However, there is good news for us in America. We have begun to develop a new attitude about aging. Our ideas about getting old are old! Through new discoveries, we are learning that how we age is not only a function of our years, but also a function of our attitude.

In this lesson, we'll explore how a positive attitude about getting older can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
