I’m reading “Happy to 102” by Kathy and James Johnson, and Lily Sarafan. They are senior-care industry advocates in Palo Alto, CA. The Johnsons hold PhDs and Kathy Johnson is a Certified Geriatric Care Manager. The Census Bureau notes that within 50 years there will be one million Americans age 102 or older. THAT’S US! No longer can we plan on living to 75, 80 or 85. Say the authors, we need “to plan” our current lifestyle so that we will enjoy health and happiness as we approach the century-mark and older. Diet, exercise, sociability, and sense of purpose make the difference not only in how long we live but in how happily we live. I’m particularly noting their experiences with what it takes to delay or escape Alzheimer’s and other chronic diseases. I’m all for that! Stay tuned as I launch my new blog series “Happy to 102.”
