We all want the best of growing older. There’s just one problem: the older we get, the harder it gets to stay well and active. Sound familiar? In this book author Margie Hackbarth reveals the ways affirmations help us set and achieve meaningful goals during this phase of life’s journey. This includes how to recognize and tackle unconscious and deep-rooted age bias. She teaches how to pause to reflect. Then guides readers to shift from reluctantly aging to intentionally aging.
Margie Hackbarth, a Christian author, writes from a heart that believes in people, blending enthusiasm for older adults, lifelong learning, and nearly 30-years of healthcare communications and administration. A wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend, Margie hopes this work encourages and benefits you as much as these techniques have helped her.
I found it helpful to write this short excerpt on a sticky note and post it on my Mac while writing this book. The research pulled me in many different directions relating to healthy aging, positive aging, the value of affirmations, ageism and other interesting topics. I was easily distracted! Eventually, I found this sticky note and guiding purpose helped pull me back on track! For a limited time this book is available for free on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Please let me know how well I stayed on course.
