Adding Life to Our Years ·


Last week, I taped a PBS show to be aired in September. The discussion we were taping lead to think thought about the widespread notion that we might choose between adding more years to our lives or more life to our years. All of my research suggests to me that by living mindfully—and adding more life to our years—in fact, we will probably live longer. So, if we take care of how we are in the present, the future will take care of itself.
