Increase Healthspan, Brainspan, and Lifespan with Ageless Aging with Maddy Dychtwald

Women now live six years longer than men – yet, for most, the last decade of life can be plagued with cascading poor health and a lack of purpose. In other words, women’s healthspans and lifespans are out of sync. What if there was a way for women to extend not only their longevity, but their quality of life?

In this interview, Maddy Dychtwald will talk about her cutting-edge research that helps women take advantage of the scientific, psychological, and physical knowledge and tools to feel vital, youthful, and purposeful into their 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and beyond. We are currently in the beginning stages of a longevity revolution with women at the forefront. Women hold the power to change the aging narrative once and for all, by emphasizing the gifts of long life and taking steps to minimize physical and mental decline.

Maddy will share simple and actionable steps to help women increase their healthspans, brainspans, and lifespans, including tips, techniques, and hacks (many of which are low cost or no cost). Although focused on women, Maddy's presentation is helpful for everyone.

Let’s Tell Our Stories: How Older Women Can Redefine Aging With Age with Andrea Carlisle

In her recently published book, There Was an Old Woman: Reflections on These Strange, Surprising, Shining Years, Andrea Carlisle describes what it means to her to live a long life. She examines why her experience as an older woman is so different from what she expected it to be and realizes that her expectations came not from older women themselves but primarily from a culture that misled her from an early age right into the present day.

Through children’s stories, art, literature, and common stereotypes that pop up in everyday conversations, we are told what an old woman is and needs. In her view, we can only challenge misperceptions through speaking up, telling our own stories, and supporting one another in facing what these years actually are: the hard truths as well as the perspective and often profound complexity that come with growing older.

In this program, you will discover:

  • Why Carlisle is not afraid of the word “old” and is willing to apply it to herself while also recognizing others may not feel the same way and have their reasons.
  • The fact that we're all lumped together because of one shared physical reality is as wrong when it pertains to the old as it is with any other group that shares a single physical characteristic.
  • Why a lot of the misunderstanding, not to mention fear, we have about older women is because for centuries, men told their stories, painted their pictures, and constructed fantasies about them that are just as dangerous and damaging as the ones they built around nubile, ever available younger women.
  • Who are we really? Just as proved to be the case in every other era of our lives, living into old age is an individual experience. The opportunity we have now, as opposed to other times in history, is to create more honesty about these years by pushing ourselves to own and share our unique reality with others.

Learning to Love Midlife: 12 Reasons Why Life Gets Better With Age with Chip Conley

It is time to reframe how we think about midlife, the transition period of life between young adulthood and old age, as not a “crisis” but a chrysalis — where a profound transformation happens. In his book, Learning to Love Midlife: 12 Reasons Why Life Gets Better With Age, Chip Conley offers an alternative narrative to the way we commonly think of our 40s and beyond, and reminds us that life begins at 50 with the best of our days still ahead of us.

He began exploring the physical, emotional, mental, vocational, and spiritual transitions that happen in our 40s, 50s, and 60s with a desire to share his learning freely. People are living longer than ever before, and because of this midlife becomes even more of an important time in our life. This life stage opens the door to embracing new perspectives and ways of thinking that have the potential to change our lives.

In this program, you'll discover how to:

  • Prevent anticipation of your future regret as a form of wisdom that you can embrace any time in your life
  • Grow comfortable in your own skin
  • Redefine what a successful life looks like
  • Let go of our emotional baggage, mindsets, and obligations that no longer serve us as a part of the “Great Midlife Exit”
  • Feel a part of something bigger than ourselves and growing whole
