For this episode, Lee is solo for the purpose of exposing and challenging his own thinking on what Positive Aging is. He explains his "OLDER, Not OLD" tagline, and wonders about our cultural stereotyping of older people, and how "Blue Zones" become Blue Zones. Lee also points to a bit of research that give us reason to value the older brain, and suggests a few things he believes will help in aging successfully, without growing OLD.
Questions Explored in this Episode:
- How do we define Positive Aging?
- The difference between growing OLDER and growing OLD.
- Do our cultural customs help or hurt aging?
- How "Blue Zones" become Blue Zones.
