How long do you want to live? Do you believe you can have a different experience after age 65 than most people?

I am prepared to create a healthy life one day at a time. I feel and that making changes in my daily living and thinking are two primary ways.

BE YOUR OWN ROLE MODEL AND FIND ONES THAT SPEAK TO YOU
