We’re living longer, and this is something to celebrate and enjoy. And research shows we can help ourselves to age better. This book will show you how. Maggy Pigott’s uplifting and practical guide explains what to do, why, and how to live a healthier, happier life in eight steps - whatever your age.

They include having a purpose, connecting with others, and being physically active. Each step has easy to follow tips, over 150 in all, and inspiring, often amusing, quotations from the ancient world to the present day. You will see that you’re never too old, and it’s never too late to try something new, be of value or even achieve greatness. As the writer and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth says, it is “full of wit, wisdom - and hope!” 

The book is based on evidence and the author’s life experience, from working in the public sector (and honoured with a CBE) while bringing up a family, to taking up dancing, writing and volunteering after her retirement. She is Vice Chair of a charity (receiving part of her royalties from book sales) which connects older people to a fun, active and fulfilling life. This is her first book, written and published in her late '60s.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
