You don't have to turn back the clock. This powerful workbook will help you redefine the aging process, think flexibly, improve your mental health, and live life to the fullest

For even the fittest, healthiest, and most vibrant among us, the truth is there are inevitable challenges that come from growing older. Major life transitions such as retirement, the loss of family or a partner, changes in our bodies, and changing social roles in everyday life can lead to feelings of uncertainty, loss of control, and even anxiety and depression. But aging doesn't have to be a negative thing. You can carve out your own path. This book will show you how to live with more vitality and joy--at any age

The Positive Aging Handbook offers proven-effective, evidence-based skills drawn from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you learn the art of flexible thinking and feel more empowered and engaged with life. You'll discover strategies for managing anxiety and depression, as well as lifestyle tips to help reduce symptoms in the future. You'll also learn how your brain changes as you age, and find a wealth of strategies for managing these changes and making the most of your life.

If the changes you face as you age leave you feeling anxious, sad, or stressed, let this handbook guide you to take charge of your own aging process--and your mental health. You are worth it
