Purposeful, active living. Creating a legacy. Being loved and loving.
Getting older with resilience is far more about being functional, vibrant, and joyful physically, mentally, and spiritually than it is about discomfort, separation, and loss. Mindful stewardship of body, mind, and spirit allows us to respond to changes and challenges and remain connected to loved ones who love us, especially our Creator. This Christian primary care physician’s perspective on and prescription for aging well draws on current medical and cognitive science and 50 years of practicing the art of medicine. Learn to recognize and affirm your relationship with God and worth as God’s child as you understand the critical components to “whole care” of human life.
