Isolation is tough, and it is an issue that the last few years have magnified. What if we don’t feel particularly lonely — would meeting more people be a positive? Yes, unequivocably, we could all use more human connection. It is one of those things like air, or learning, that one can never have too much of. To meet and connect with new people is exciting, stimulating, and one of the hallmarks of the people we know who live well at any age. It is one of those ‘more really is better’ situations.
Coming out of a pandemic, with travel still weird, we think it could be tremendous, especially if there were no barriers to entry — not geography, not cost, not anything — to have a way to meet and connect with others who read AGEIST. We have wanted to do something like this for some time, to make more of a conversation with us and between all of you. There are the comment sections on the site and of course the legacy social media companies, but these both have issues. Since discovering this new social platform, we have found the conversation-oriented Leaphas solved so many of the negative issues that abound in places like Facebook and Twitter. We think Leap could be the ticket for real conversation and connection with people like us. It is zero risk; all you have to do is download the app and join us in conversation.
This coming Monday the 8th at 9:30am PT, as a start, we have arranged for Anissa Buckley, whom we profiled last week, to host a Leap chat on the topic of diet and menopause. If you are worried about weight gain, or have experienced weight gain, you will want to be here for this conversation. There are real reasons and real solutions that are rarely discussed, and on which Anissa is an expert. Our plan going forward is to have regular Leap chats on topics that we cover at AGEIST with experts we trust, all designed so that as many of you who wish to join will have a place to connect and discuss. This has been a long time coming, and we are very happy to have a place to connect. Looking forward to hearing from all of you on how you like it.
Join me in this 30-minute interactive video conversation with Anissa where we can all discuss How should I change my diet during menopause? on Monday the 8th at 9:30am PT / 12:30pm ET following this link from your iPhone or iPad.
See you there,
