Don’t Retire: Re-Career

When asked her secret to longevity, one nonagenarian replied, "It's four easy words—never, never, never retire. Keep going, keep moving, keep thinking, keep living." Being involved in meaningful work is one of the best things you can do for successful brain and body aging, says Dr. Dennis Popeo. "It's 'medicine' in the best sense of the word. Working offers an older person the benefits of social engagement and purpose."

Working may also stave off cognitive decline, according to the National Institute on Aging. Their surveys show that retirees don't perform as well on cognitive tests as those who are still working, and global research supports this: in the United States and Denmark, where workers stay employed longer, people score highest on cognitive tests. So far, researchers can't pinpoint the aspect of "working" that benefits brain function, whether it's social interaction or the physical aspects of a job, but whatever the longevity secret of employment, it's working!

Even if you do choose or have to retire, it’s important to make an extra effort to stay intellectually engaged. Consider consulting part time or doing pro bono work. If you do wish to stay employed, bear in mind that finding your new role in the workforce can be challenging. AARP, formerly the American Association of Retired Persons, has taken up this crusade, working with large companies to promote the hiring of older workers. See www.aarp.org/work/job-hunting.

-Try Volunteering
Working on a volunteer basis or as an intern are two ways to try on a new career for size. Ask to fill in for someone on maternity/paternity or sick leave; this is called locum tenens, Latin for "place holder," when someone temporarily fulfills the duties of another.

-Segue to a New Career
Re-careering may involve refining or renovating your skill set. Or you might try something completely different—an interest or a hobby that you want to focus on for this new phase of your life. One woman turned a lifelong love of birds into work as a wildlife rehabilitator. After taking classes and getting a state license to handle wildlife, she rescues ospreys and other raptors.

-Look for New Opportunities
Start with your own expertise, whether it's your vocation or avocation. If you've always loved art, for instance, channel that passion and knowledge into being a docent for a museum. If you had a career as a tradesman, ask home improvement centers if they are hiring people with your skill set. "Never before have so many people had so much knowledge and so much time to use it" is the belief of www.encore.org, a website that helps middle-aged and older adults transition into second careers that help the greater good. It maintains listings of resources that include programs, people, and preparation for a later-life career. Look for opportunities around you: ask to shadow someone who’s doing a job you’re interested in.

Revue de presse

"In my Foundation’s health initiatives—and in my own life—I’ve seen again and again how even small measures to improve your health can make a big difference. Living the Good Long Life is full of simple ideas that can be incorporated into daily routines to help you feel better and keep on doing what you love."
President Bill Clinton

"For thirty years, Martha Stewart has carefully coached us on how to take care of our homes, our menus, our crafts. And now in Living the Good Long Life, she has brought her brilliant skills to the mission of helping us take care of ourselves. With sparkling prose, no-nonsense instruction, and, as always, oceans of wisdom, Martha implores readers not to recoil from their advancing years, but to embrace and celebrate them—with invaluable tips on keeping our diets healthy, our bodies pumping, and our outlook forever sunny. I just loved this book."
Marlo Thomas

"In this lovely book, Martha Stewart shares her experience and wisdom about how best to care for yourself and others as you go through life. The pages are filled with practical tips and useful advice for aging gracefully. I recommend it."
Andrew Weil, M.D.

"Living the Good Long Life is the latest in Martha Stewart's arsenal of masterful advice. She inspires you to nurture your body, emotions, and total life experience, focusing on the opportunities that comes into life with an its-never-too-late-to-take-action approach. Martha offers lessons in strength, grace, and a complete glimpse of how to get up and keep going with the best of taste!"
—Tracy Anderson, author of Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method

"Only Martha could have written the definitive book on looking after ourselves as we grow older. I have found the value of a daily practice that incorporates yoga and writing, two disciplines that help me balance my spiritual and physical life. I hope that through this book, you will find what works for you."
—Alexander Vreeland, Luxury Goods Executive, President of the Board of the Iyengar Yoga Association of the Greater NY

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unlike any other book Martha Stewart has written. 3 mai 2013
Par Patty Kaye - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
When I saw Martha Stewart on a morning news show talking about this new book, Living the Good Long Life, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from it. As with all of her books, I expected this one to contain good information regarding healthy eating, exercise, and other useful suggestions on making our lives better. I expected organizational ideas, decorating suggestions, and maybe some good recipes. I had no idea that she had compiled such a wealth of information regarding virtually every aspect of life for those of us approaching our "older" years. I am in my 50s, and I am grateful to be reading this "early", but this contains vital information for people in their 60s, 70s, and 80s as well.

Martha states several times that it's never too late to start a healthy living regimen...not just physically but also mentally. She has established the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Medical Center in honor of her mother, and its purpose is geriatric research and development. This book is filled with great information regarding all aspects of life as we age. I started reading and couldn't put it down.

In the foreword written by Dr. Audrey Chang, she states that "While nobody can expect to live forever, the goal is to live the time we have with the best health and physical/mental capacity possible." This is so true! But this book is about so much more than that. Martha compares growing old gracefully to the life of a bonsai tree...always changing...growing more interesting through the years. I like that thought.

The book is written in larger than usual print, which I really appreciated. The layout is easy to read. You can find the topic you're looking for by following the Table of Contents or Index. Each chapter lists the topics that are in that chapter, so you can go right to the information you want to reference. There's a good listing of resource material at the end, as well as suggested reading material. The chapters are divided into two parts. I'll briefly mention (not by any means a complete listing) what the chapters contain in order for you to get an idea of what's in the book.

PART ONE: Healthy Living Today

Chapter 1: Healthy Eating
The importance of eating "real food", vitamins and minerals and their natural sources, stocking your pantry, mindful eating, samples of easy and basic healthy meals (including photos).

Chapter 2: Healthy Fitness (lots of illustrations)
Importance of being active every day; benefits of walking, yoga, stretching; improving balance; strength training.

Chapter 3: Healthy Brain
Creativity, healthy eating, mental exercises, effects of medications on the brain/memory.

Chapter 4: Healthy Outlook ("...age really comes down to spirit___the age you feel you are inside, no matter how old you are outside)
Being optimistic, changing negative thoughts to positive thoughts, having a purpose for your life, doing something new, what role pets play in our lives, social connections, laughter.

Chapter 5: Healthy Living Every Day
Maintaining your health through proper care of your body, immunizations, screenings, and sleep; building up your immune system; eye, oral, bladder, sexual health.

Chapter 6: Healthy Looks
Caring for and protecting your skin, identifying cancer, makeup, healthy hair.

Chapter 7: Healthy Home (pictures)
House design, safety issues, organizing, decluttering, lighting, plants, cleaning.

PART TWO: Healthy Living Into Tomorrow

Chapter 8: Healthy Living Into the Future
How to proactively prepare for your older years, choosing your physicians, reducing your risks of health problems, preparing for a hospital stay.

Chapter 9: Healthy Caring
Understanding the options when it comes time to decide on how to care for your elderly family member, financial considerations, insurance, end-of-life decisions, how to make your loved one's final days comfortable and enjoyable, and preparing for the end.

I have to emphasize again that this is a very abbreviated list of the huge amount of information you'll find in this book. I especially think the last few chapters on caring for the elderly and making end-of-life decisions is so important. This book covers so much territory.

The book is appropriate for men and women alike. It would be good reading for anyone approaching middle age...or older...and will inspire them to take control of the rest of their lives. It would also be good reading for anyone who has aging parents or is a caretaker of the elderly. This is one I'll be keeping for future reference.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Martha's best ever 5 mai 2013
Par Brigitte Pauli - Publié sur Amazon.com

As a cookbook author myself, I was never too crazy about M's somewhat complicated recipes for cakes and other dishes since simplicitly is really key when you want to teach a lot of people how to use ad expand their cooking skills. However, this book is very down to earth, straight forward and it is as if you're talking to a good friend about a few helpful hints. I think she really has a passion for this particular subject matter and it jumps off the page because of that. I read the entire book in a day and prepped one of her fresh recipes last night. Great stuff. Very helpful and definitely a must have if you want to improve the quality of life of your loved ones and your own approach. It's a fantastic blend of lived wisdom, thoroughly researched backgroudn information, references and last, but not least, encouragement. What a self-help book should be.

I love this book. I think this is a very informative and helpful book for women of all ages. I am also in my 70's and very proud of it. I think you and I both represent our decade in a very attractive way. We both show the world that we old girls still have it going on. Your book helps with information that can keep all women looking and feeling good at any age. That there is no limit to how long you can keep looking and feeling good. Just read the book and find out

Who doesn't love Martha Stewart? From bedspreads-curtains-kitchen utensils-cooking -gardening... Martha Stewart is a part of our life in some capacity.

I will say this... When it comes to reviewing advice book, diet books, and etc - there will be a feeling of... "Yeah... Yeah... I heard this before..." I don't think there's a perfect health book out there. If there were the bookstores wouldn't need a section dedicated to health.

Living The Good Life offers useful tips for anyone that wants to make positive changes in their life/health. Martha does an excellent job with the format of this book. The information in this book is very easy to understand and implement in your daily life.

Below are Martha's 10 Golden Rules....

1. Eat well
2. Maintain a healthy weight
3. Stay physically active
4. Get quality sleep
5. Wear sun screen
6. Collaborate with a good primary-care doctor regularly
7. Find you passion
8. Connect with others
9. Stop complaining - change what you can, and accept what you cannot
10. Stay curious

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not much new content 7 juin 2013
Par Donna S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you like Martha Stewart you'll like this book. It's a complete book and covers all the topics it claims to cover. The most valuable thing about the book is that Martha puts all her good advice in one place. The chapter about healthy caring was especially unique to a healthy eating/living book. I liked that it was geared toward older (sixties) women. My gripe, there's not much new content in this book. If you are even moderately well informed, you've read all this before. More than once. On TV, in a magazine, on-line or in the newspaper. My recommendation- If you are a mature woman, a Martha fan and get a discount, buy the book.
