What is ‘longevity’?
There are many ways to answer this question, most of them point to the scientific and technological advancements which are enabling us to live longer, healthier lives. However, these are only one component of the concept of ‘longevity’. More fundamental than these advancements is the shift in mindset that is now possible, given all that we know about aging and the human condition more broadly. Put simply, a longevity mindset embraces the principle that you are in charge of your aging destiny.
Our future is one that already enables a significant shift in the number of healthy years you can spend on this planet - years with loved ones, years of rich experience, years of living out your purpose, in service to others. What is paramount is doing the work required to change all the programming that you have been served over the years about what ‘aging’ looks like. It does not mean years of being housebound in slow decline. It does not mean a one way ticket to the diseases experienced by your own parents, your grandparents and those before them.
Instead, with a longevity mindset, you take control of your aging future - by choosing to see that you can live many, many more healthy years, disease free and strong, no matter what age you are now.
