How to be a Superb-Ager

Course:  Join us and find out what a Superb-Ager is … plus why and how to become one!

Reap the benefits of becoming a Superb-Ager now. It can enhance well-being and possibly longevity as well.  This highly interactive class will cover what current research tells us about what contributes the most to our mental and emotional wellness as we age.  Included will be the neuroscience of the aging brain: its blessings and benefits, as well as its challenges and what we can effectively do about them.

The surprising new brain research on happiness and well-being will also be addressed. In addition, the Superb-Ager strategies and practices covered will teach us how to maintain our mental and emotional balance in these turbulent and changing times.

Each participant will be encouraged to use the course content to develop an individualized action plan for becoming a better Superb-Ager.
