Sometimes life’s great challenges leave behind remarkable gifts – unexpected silver linings that stay with us and forever change our lives in the grandest ways we never dreamed. Today’s guest suffered a life-threatening accident and that was just the beginning of an unexpected journey as he shares – in a new direction. Join us as we welcome Dr. Alan T. Carpenter, a wonderful role model of Aging GreatFULLy, and author of Chose Better, Live Better: Nine Healthy Choices That Nurture Body, Mind and Spirit. Dr. Carpenter makes the scientific case that embracing these nine choices in our daily lives can elevate our health and wellbeing and help us Age GreatFULLy!
At 74 years young, Carpenter doesn’t just speak and write about healthy lifestyle choices, he practices and lives an active life and shares it with others – with a few occasional slip ups of course, saying after all, he’s human. And that’s part of his charm, really, his candid authenticity that we all appreciate; because we realize this truth speaks to each of us. In this power-hour of enlightYOUment, we’ll be talking the power of mindset, the science of aging, and he is certain to motivate every listener to accept Mother Nature’s standing invite to come have that visit to the Great Outdoors! A nature enthusiast and hiker, biker and long-distance adventurer extraordinaire -- having just completed a 3,727 mile long cycling trip through Washington, Oregon and California -- he invites us all along on the fabulous and enriching journey! He shares his wisdom both lived and learned and his passion radiates from beginning to end! Prepare to be motivated and empowered and realize, yes! You can too – as he reminds us all that sometimes the only thing preventing us from doing something is simply our own self-limiting beliefs!
Carpenter makes it a priority to keep up with the scientific literature on health and well being but also brings insight to this conversation as he shares some things we can all do that allow us to participate in more passion-centered living. And he even opens up quite candidly about how he himself has learned and leaned into Aging more GreatFULLy over the years and how it has improved his life in immeasurable ways. It’s an episode everyone will learn and grow from with a guest you’re certain to want another inspiring hour with.
