Getting an “A” in Successful Aging

Can you learn how to age more gracefully? Are there ways to become a more active participant in the aging process? Are there things you can learn to stay healthier longer?

The latest data says yes to all those questions. Good news for us all!

Those questions and more are addressed in the Successful Aging program of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine housed at Mass General in Boston. The nine-week course, designed for those 65 and over, equips participants with tools to help them use the latest advances in our understanding of the aging process. Among the topics covered are stress reduction using the Relaxation Response; how stress contributes to conditions like hypertension, insomnia, chronic pain and cognitive decline; mood enhancement methods to remain positive and ten tips on aging well.
