10 Golden Rules for Aging
Living the Good Life is Martha Stewart's newest book. In it are simple, practical and doable things that will extend life.
Westchester Health & Life magazine interviewed Ms. Stewart for the August/September issue. The following is a brief summary:
"I learned so much from my mother. She taught me that growing older need not mean narrowing the scope of activities and interests......It's about living gracefully and healthfully with energy and enthusiasm even as we grow older."
For Martha a healthy diet: "I don't eat chemicals I would rather have a teaspoon of sugar than a packet of artificial sweeter. I don't buy artificial anything. I don't open cans very often when cooking. I don't drink carbonated soda......although I have a glass of wine every now and then and I do not sip cocktails. This comes from a conscious decision to be healthy and vibrant and all the other things one must do.
I want all of us to be prepared for later life. That means making our health and well-being a greater priority."
