How can language change our perception of ourselves and improve our self esteem? How do we move towards a society that views anyone in their 50s and beyond as fully capable? How can we reduce stress and prevent damage to our epigenome?
This week on the SuperAge podcast David is solo to dive into these questions.
“A lot of us say to ourselves: “I need to get fit. I need to get a little stronger. I need to lose a little weight.” Let’s hold that thought for a second and let’s reframe that with a different word. Let’s use the word ‘athlete’. Let’s say to ourselves: ‘I am an athlete.’ How does that feel? It feels really different, doesn’t it?”
“Let’s raise the bar. We have this capacity.”
“I have actual, real data about how my parasympathetic nervous system and its stress load is decreased by listening to this kind of music.”
