Notes

Description
"What is longevity? The dictionary has it as living to a great age, but there's another meaning - if something has longevity, it has constancy and persistence, for much as long life itself is great, it's not as useful a goal as a good, abundant and durable life. This book is about what we can do to live better for longer; it's about expanding our 'health span' and enhancing wellbeing with each year that passes."--,Provided by publisher.
Description
This, the 12th in Firefly Books' series of small-format books that focuses on a variety of topics but especially wellness and spirituality, addresses a universal interest: long life. But we don't want just years, we want years that are healthy and rewarding. The Longevity Bible explains how the aging process works and what you can do to enjoy a better quality of life for longer. Sadly, there is no magical elixir but this book can help readers gain a new perspective on aging and how to optimize their longevity. It reveals what history, biology, Eastern philosophy, Western science and the findings of top medical experts and researchers can teach us about maintaining optimal health as we move through our lives. The author explains the important role that sleep, moderation, diet, a sense of purpose, connection, love and curiosity have in helping us to live well and live happily. The topic of longevity is approached first by what we have long known about living longer and the practices and beliefs from around the world that have emerged in the pursuit of a long life, with varying results. The second section is about the science and technology currently understood and being researched thanks to the universal desire for a longer life. The final section steps back to consider what we have learned, and provides 20 of the most important tips for health and longevity. --from Amazon.
