"Discover 100 Ways
To Live To 100"
By Tanner Garrity
Senior Editor, InsideHook
You might wonder: Why would I want to live longer? Doesn’t the end-of-life look drawn out, expensive and horrible? Why would I sign up for decades of suffering?
Well, the latest wave of longevity research isn’t focused on living years for the sake of years. It’s concerned with "quality" years.
Think about it. More years to travel, to exercise, to spend time with your family and whatever new family comes along. An entire life of creativity and challenges to enjoy after retirement.

Q: You have been working hard for some time to get back into shape. What motivates you?
I've always been an exerciser. I love
it and rarely go a day without exercising.
But as I grew older, my body changed in ways I did not like and my regular routine was not enough.
I wanted more time to exercise and I wanted to exercise harder. I wanted to see results.
"Road Tripping Through The American Southwest With My Grandnephew"
--Don Mankin, The Adventure Geezer
“It’s crazy,” my grandnephew exclaimed as we approached the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
I heard Aaron say that often over
the next several days as the two of us explored the national parks and monuments of northern Arizona and southern Utah.
Aaron, 23, has spent most of his life in Florida so, for him the canyons, cliffs and mountains of the American Southwest were like something from another world.
"How a Woman’s Unique Background Gave Rise to a Powerful Pain Management Product"
Every day for 15 years, Stacy Cason treated patients suffering from various medical issues, many of whom dealt with chronic pain.
“They were hurting, and often, the end result of that was turning to opioids,” Stacy said.
As an anesthesiology nurse practitioner, Stacy witnessed firsthand the rise of the opioid pandemic in the United States.
The U.S. makes up just 4.4% of the world’s population but consumes more than 80% of the world’s opioids.
And it was witnessing that crisis and the devastating impacts on patients and their families that ultimately led Stacy to found her company--Planetarie, the world's first ever USDA-certified organic CBDa manufacturer and distributor.
"A Cautionary Tale"
"Negotiating The Medical And Legal Establishments Will Wear You Down Like The Sun Melts A Block Of Ice On A 100 Degree Day"
The experiences in the following narrative are my own personal ones. Hopefully, you will be more prepared than I was.
A perfect storm of circumstances put me in a most precarious situation. The death of my mother-in-law, a brother-in-law and husband in less than three years catapulted me to position of
personal representative for the brother–in-law and my husband.
Who knew that the death of a woman almost 99 years old would set off a chain of events that could be so fraught with tension and so costly?

“My Doctor Treats Me Like I’m Stupid And Ready To Kick The Bucket"
--Sally, 90, San Jose, CA
A: Some of my older friends often complain that their doctors don’t really listen to them because the belief that older people aren’t resilient and won’t recover from illness.
In other words, “not long for this world” so, why bother with treatment.
Rubbish. Smacks of ageism.
If you feel that your doctor doesn’t treat you as a real person, find another doctor.
Personally, I have not--knowingly--experienced ageism in healthcare but know that it exists.
June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month!
Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurodegenerative disease which means it gets worse over time and the person affected eventually loses the ability to accomplish daily tasks.
Memory loss, such as frequently forgetting names, words or new information, is typically one of the first warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
Part of Alzheimer’s disease awareness is knowing the symptoms so you can recognize them in a loved one who may be developing Alzheimer’s.
Symptoms to look out for include:
• Memory loss confusion with time or place
• Trouble planning, organizing
or solving problems
• Communication struggles
• Misplacing things and being unable to retrace steps
• Mood and personality changes
The sooner a diagnosis is made, the sooner someone can work with their medical team to optimize the treatment of physical and mental health conditions.
