More About Younger Next Year for Women by Chris Crowley; Henry S. Lodge; Gail Sheehy
 
 
 
Overview
You're coming into the peak of your life. And because you’ re already more attuned to your physical and emotional needs, and more inclined to commit to a healthier lifestyle, you're poised to live brilliantly for the thirty-plus years after menopause. All you need now is the program outlined in Younger Next Year for Women— which, for starters, will help you avoid literally 70 percent of the decay and eliminate 50 percent of the injuries and illnesses associated with getting older.
How? Drawn from disciplines as varied as evolutionary biology, cell physiology, experimental psychology and anthropology, the science behind Younger Next Year is clear. Our bodies are programmed to do one of two things: either grow or decay. Sitting in front of a screen all day tells the body to decay. Taking a walk or doing yoga tells the body to grow. Loneliness and stress trigger decay; love and laughter trigger growth.
Just as clear as the science is the goal: Become the active gatekeeper of your own body and gain the power to control those signals of growth and decay. Seven simple rules show the way, from #1 Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life, to #6 Care, to #7 Connect and commit.

They’ re called Harry’ s Rules, named for the doctor and coauthor— Henry S. Lodge, M.D.— who formulated them, and who explains the precise science behind each one. But since it’ s one thing to know something’ s good for you and quite another to put it into practice, Dr. Lodge, the scientist, is joined by Chris Crowley— coauthor, exhorter and living example— whose brusque charm and infectious enthusiasm will actually have you living by the rules. So, congratulations. You’ re now about to get younger.

Uncovering a younger you

How's this for confidence? Authors Chris Crowley and Harry Lodge begin their new volume on helping women age well by declaring, "This is a book that can change your life." Turns out, they can back up that claim, as they demonstrated in their 2005 bestseller Younger Next Year. This year, they return with a follow-up that specifically targets feminine concerns about aging, Younger Next Year for Women. By dispensing advice on how to live a fit and healthy life (rather than how to beat the clock and erase the wrinkles), Crowley and Lodge are doing the women of America a big favor. Their basic premise is that women get better and more powerful with age, and they should take care that their bodies do as well. The vibrant advice about the best physical activities for women (biking and swimming rank high) may actually inspire you to dust off that bike helmet, and the common-sense approach to moderation in eating is spot-on. It's hard to imagine a more fun, smart and compelling book on the subject of women and aging. If implementing the wisdom in Younger Next Year for Women is half as entertaining as reading it, getting older is about to get a lot easier.
