Worried that old age will inevitably mean losing your libido, your health, and possibly your marbles too? Well, Cicero has some good news for you. In How to Grow Old, the great Roman orator and statesman eloquently describes how you can make the second half of life the best part of all—and why you might discover that reading and gardening are actually far more pleasurable than sex ever was. Filled with timeless wisdom and practical guidance, Cicero's brief, charming classic—written in 44 BC and originally titled On Old Age—has delighted and inspired readers, from Saint Augustine to Thomas Jefferson, for more than two thousand years. Presented here in a lively new translation with an informative new introduction and the original Latin on facing pages, the book directly addresses the greatest fears of growing older and persuasively argues why these worries are greatly exaggerated—or altogether mistaken. Montaigne said Cicero's book "gives one an appetite for growing old." The American founding father John Adams read it repeatedly in his later years. And today its lessons are more relevant than ever in a world obsessed with the futile pursuit of youth.

FEEL WELL, FEEL FIT - WHATEVER YOUR AGE! Why do so many of us believe that growing older means we must accept a gradual loss of health and wellbeing? In this ground-breaking new book, respected health practitioner Anne-Lise Miller shows why we don't need to accept that ageing and worsening health go hand-in-hand. Minor ailments such as 'brain fog', feeling tired, headaches, sleeplessness, constipation, aching joints, weight gain and low libido are common symptoms that many of us consider inevitable as we grow older. But if allowed to continue they can lead to more serious problems such as diabetes, dementia, heart disease and cancer.

She challenges the myth that we must accept the 'symptoms of age' and explains precisely how we can take control of our own good health. This book is the result of her hundreds of clients begging her to write a book about her systemic approach to health. STAY YOUNG, VIBRANT & HEALTHY In this book Anne-Lise Miller: -Challenges the belief that health wanes with age. -Explores how our emotions affect our health and wellbeing. -Demonstrates how taking control of our health brings extraordinary rewards. -Gives detailed plans and juice recipes for detoxing your liver, kidneys and gall bladder. -Provides recipes and juice combinations for healthy heart, prostate, and brain, plus foods to improve memory, and to relieve symptoms of the menopause "This book is a tour de force; a rich blend of ancient wisdom and modern science."

Currently, 42.6 million people in the United States are sixty-five or older. America is not the nicest place to grow old; so much emphasis is placed on youth. However, seniors have a lot to contribute to the world. In Grow Old along with Me, author Mark S. Milwee offers a touching and inspiring Christian commentary that speaks to the value of accepting and welcoming elderly Christians to the church. He shares his own experience in the pastoral ministry as he documents the contributions of the faithful elderly and encourages us to follow their example. Milwee shows seniors how they can be a blessing to others as they grow older and how to add value to those around them as they enter the twilight years. He helps them understand that respect must be earned instead of demanded. Grow Old along with Me reminds all that senior adults are a valuable asset to any church and deserve to be valued, cherished, and treated with dignity and respect. It encourages seniors to make the decision to grow old gracefully and seeks to bring comfort to those who are facing death in the near future.

Growing Old in Christ

One of the hallmarks of contemporary culture is its attitude toward aging and the elderly. Youth and productivity are celebrated in today's society, while the elderly are increasingly marginalized. This not only poses difficulties for old people but is also a loss for the young and middle-agers, who could learn much from the elderly, including what it means to grow old (and die) "in Christ." Growing Old in Christ presents the first serious theological reflection ever on what it means to grow old, particularly in our culture and particularly as a Christian. In a full-orbed discussion of the subject, eighteen first-rate Christian thinkers survey biblical and historical perspectives on aging, look at aging in the modern world, and describe the "Christian practice of growing old." Along the way they address many timely issues, including the medicalization of aging, the debate over physician-assisted suicide, and the importance of friendships both among the elderly and between the elderly and the young. Weighty enough to instruct theologians, ethicists, and professional caregivers yet accessible enough for pastors and general readers, this book will benefit anyone seeking faith-based insight into growing old.

‘And that is one thing we need to relearn, that all of life brings its gifts – not only the first two or three decades.’ – Rudolf Steiner When are we actually old? What happens as we age? How will we cope with old age? Growing old is an art, and to grow old in the right way we need spiritual understanding. In this enlightening anthology – compiled by a director of care homes for the elderly – wide-ranging cosmological perspectives alternate with detailed observations of the phenomena of ageing. Rudolf Steiner sees ageing within the context of the earthly and spiritual evolution that encompasses all forms of existence. The book thus begins with the primary meaning that ageing has in developmental terms and ends with a consideration of the human being as co-creator in cosmic processes – and with our capacity to become increasingly conscious of the tasks this implies. These key texts by Rudolf Steiner show how spiritual knowledge can broaden the current debate on the study of old age, the process of ageing, and the particular problems faced by older people. Concerns about our ‘ageing population’ can be seen in a broader context that recognizes the fruits of old age. The productive relationship between childhood and old age – a running theme throughout this volume – is one example. If we grow old consciously, viewing ageing not only as a period of physical decline but as a time when we can actively participate in shaping life, then we can begin to find greater meaning in it. Chapters include: ‘The Core Messages of Ageing’; ‘Fundamental Principles of Gerontology’; ‘Ageing as a Developmental Process’; ‘Ageing: the Risks and Opportunities’; The Art of Growing Old’; ‘Old Age and Death’; ‘Growing Old – A Challenge for Education’; ‘The Cosmological Dimensions of Ageing’.

Growing older is a process. Growing old is a conclusion. If you're growing older you see some hope because you have perspective and you keep learning. If you've grown old, you may cynically think that times have never been as bad as they are now, and that they can only get worse. This book is about learning how to “make peace with where you are right now.” It's about learning from the past and then moving past it. It's about growing--personally, spiritually, and in our relationships with God and with others. If we think properly about growing older we'll never have to grow old. (Publisher).
