Growing Younger

Tuesday, December 4th 2012

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Human Resources/Workforce Development Training Room 

Below is an excerpt from CommonHealth about the program:

“No matter where we live, what type of work we do, and how well we take care of ourselves, we are all getting older.

The purpose of the Growing Younger program is to identify those areas where we as individuals and families can take action to slow down our physical and mental aging while our chronological age continues to climb.  Whether we are the older family members or if we are caring for our parents and grandparents, there is a lot to consider.

With CommonHealth’s help, you can learn how to maximize your physical and mental health so that you can make the most out of life (and look great while doing it). 

We all want to look and feel our best, regardless of how old we are, but we can get caught up in the latest anti-aging craze or find ourselves looking for a quick fix to turn back the clock.  Sometimes we may settle for aches and pains or a chronic condition that we can avoid or improve, just because we feel like that is what happens as you get older. 

There is nothing that beats living well for keeping yourself in the optimal condition for making the most of your life and the lives of your loved ones.  CommonHealth can give you information on the best and most reliable ways to stay young, vital, and active, no matter what your chronological age is today.  Focusing on exercise, good nutrition, staying mentally sharp, expanding your community, increasing joy, kicking tobacco, and issues of caregiving, Growing Younger can be your ticket to the fountain of youth.”
