Hello, another week of COVID19. Congratulations you’re doing this. How are you? In these times I’ve heard from many of you that the information about boosting your immune system and exercising smarter right now is valuable – and necessary – I’ve also heard you want to focus on the bigger picture too. And the things you cared about weeks and months ago are still important to you. Today’s guest wrote the book on aging. I think you’ll find fits both now and your future.
Stephanie Raffelock helps self-aware, educated women who are interested in shirking the toxic myths and stereotypes of aging. She proves that women aren’t finished living their best lives at 50, 60 and beyond, but instead, how they become the wise elders of our culture. Stephanie celebrates age and shows how it’s a privilege to grow old – how every single day is a gift. “Peter Pan’s mantra was that he was never going to grow up. Her mantra is that we never stop growing”.
Stephanie is the host of the Coffee Table Wisdom podcast, promoting healthy aging in body, mind, and spirit. As author and blogger, she writes about universal, life-transforming forces – grief, gratitude, triumph, loss, and love. Stephanie’s latest book “A Delightful Little Book on Aging” is set for release on April 28, 2020, through She Writes Press.
A graduate of Naropa University’s in Writing and Poetics, Stephanie has penned articles for numerous publications, including The Aspen Times, The Rogue Valley Messenger, Nexus Magazine, Omaha Lifestyles, Care2.com, and SixtyandMe.com.
