Anti-Aging Diary's monthly journey to youth, longevity and fitness from Reverse Aging Now, the anti-aging video.
   

I finally turned 55, reaching that milestone feeling happier and healhtier than in a while. My weight is the lowest it's been in years. My blood pressure tested at 120/78. Today I swam a full kilometer. I have satisfying work that pays modestly, and fairly dependably. I consider myself grateful that I have a handful of good friends and a loving family and partner.

Middle age is an awkward time. I had a recent discussion about the phase "over the hill." From my research on the anti aging documentary "Reverse Aging Now," I learned that not only do all of us age at varying rates, but different aspects of our body age differently. I will never have the eyes again of a 20 year old. Reading glasses litter every one of my rooms, as well my car and boat. As frustrating as this aspect of aging is, I can still legally drive without glasses. More importantly, if I now start taking the supplement lutein, and increase my intake of anti oxidant rich fruits and vegetables through juicing, I could sidestep a major cause of adult blindness, age related macular degeneration. It's a fate that just hit a dear friend of mine who recently turned 92. Knowlege is one key to prevention.

So much of anti-aging is attitude. I was practicing my serve prior to a tennis match when an old gentlemen who had been playing next to me watched for a moment and asked if I'd like a suggestion. I listened. It helped my stroke. I noticed that he and his companions were all senior citizens, enjoying themselves in a doubles set instead of leaning on walkers to shuffle from the TV to the fridge.

As I write this, the US is gearing up for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah. It's always been a special time of year for me, but many of us lose sight as to why it matters. For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, the days are now gettng shorter and colder. Gloom creeps in. Both Hanukkah and Christmas are festivals of light, Hanukkah celebrates the miracle of the infinite oil lamp supply. Christmas was set during the Roman festival of Saturnalia, which coincides with days barely beginning to lengthen again. The holiday reminds us that despite the pending worst of winter, spring will eventually come. It's a time of hope in the midst of darkness, the perfect season to celebrate the birth of Jesus, whose teachings are significant, whether or not you accept him as a savior. As we age, we can look forward to more than decline. We can savor the well placed serve, the transcendent beauty of nature, a tasty, healthy meal, a belly laugh, and the precious intimacy shared when your heart is buoyed by one who is dear to you.

This month, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, be grateful for the good in our lives. Whether you believe in God or not, recognize that your life has genuine significance.The older we get the faster years seem to fly by, so take time to celebrate life's joys and the healing power of love.
