Living life to the full, at any age, has been a challenge recently.  To put it mildly.  But if Covid has taught us anything, it is that some of life’s simplest pleasures are what make life itself worth living. Therein lies a metaphor for healthy aging.  Physical fitness, social contact and an active mind go a long way towards helping us live longer and better.  They are also central to the ideals of Aging is Cool, a Texas-based company that helps people over fifty stay active and engaged as they age. In this LLAMA episode, Aging is Cool co-founder, Amy Temperley, explains why she rails against a modern-day culture rife with ageism and how she hopes to redefine what it means to grow old. In conversation with Peter Bowes, Amy also reveals how life with Covid has opened her eyes to the everyday activities that bring pleasure and purpose to life.
