You're coming into the peak of your life. And because you’re already more attuned to your physical and emotional needs, and more inclined to commit to a healthier lifestyle, you're poised to live brilliantly for the thirty-plus years after menopause. All you need now is the program outlined in Younger Next Year for Women—which, for starters, will help you avoid literally 70 percent of the decay and eliminate 50 percent of the injuries and illnesses associated with getting older.

How? Drawn from disciplines as varied as evolutionary biology, cell physiology, experimental psychology and anthropology, the science behind Younger Next Year is clear. Our bodies are programmed to do one of two things: either grow or decay. Sitting in front of a screen all day tells the body to decay. Taking a walk or doing yoga tells the body to grow. Loneliness and stress trigger decay; love and laughter trigger growth.

Just as clear as the science is the goal: Become the active gatekeeper of your own body and gain the power to control those signals of growth and decay. Seven simple rules show the way, from #1 Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life, to #6 Care, to #7 Connect and commit.

They’re called Harry’s Rules, named for the doctor and coauthor—Henry S. Lodge, M.D.—who formulated them, and who explains the precise science behind each one. But since it’s one thing to know something’s good for you and quite another to put it into practice, Dr. Lodge, the scientist, is joined by Chris Crowley—coauthor, exhorter and living example—whose brusque charm and infectious enthusiasm will actually have you living by the rules. So, congratulations. You’re now about to get younger.

My-Thoughts

Read/Listened for Fun (Audible/Kindle)
Overall Rating: DNF

First Thoughts: Younger Next Year for Women had a good message (mostly) but it was buried under joining a gym, skiing stories, swimming stories, and insulting terms that made me shut down the book!

Here is the parts that I really liked:
1: Exercise is key to adding years to your life.
2: Eating right makes your body perform better.
3: Knowing your heart rate during exercise will let you know how much you are pushing yourself.
4: Strength training for women is key to battling some women specific issues that come up post menopause.

Nothing earth-shattering but all good things to keep in mind. The rest (and I made 6 hours) was all chatter that was off-putting and buried the information. Overall I was not impressed.

    Insulting terms? Ick! I will never understand self-help books that try so hard to have “edge” that they end up insulting their readers (which I assume this one was probably doing, based on the stories and everything). Shame. Glad you found some good info in it.
