Living the Good Long Life
Martha Stewart's next book, Living The Good Long Life, is due out on May 7th and it's one that I'm really looking forward to. We all know how gracefully Martha is aging. At the age of 71 she is still extremely active, at work and at home, constantly learning, exploring and looking after herself by eating well, exercising and taking time to enjoy her family and friends. She doesn't look a day over 50! The book touts itself as a guide to caring for yourself and others with practical information for those caring for aging relatives or looking after themselves. This is a subject that is very dear to Martha. The creation of the Martha Stewart Center for Living - a geriatric community center at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan that encourages active living for the elderly - is just one of several contributions Martha has made to the cause of healthy aging. (Dr. Audrey Chun, the director of the Center for Living, writes the foreword.) This book will be a treasure to those of us who are approaching that period in our lives when caregiving will become increasingly important with aging parents and relatives who will need our support. We, in turn, as caregivers must have good tools and resources to draw upon in order to maintain our own strength, health and peace of mind. I can't wait for this book! You can pre-order it here.
