In Master Class: Living Longer, Stronger, and Happier, author Peter Spiers offers the latest findings in aging and longevity while evaluating the benefit of activities we might do to improve our chances at longer life. Through interviews with "masters," individuals who excel at a particular activity, Spiers makes a case for the how and why teach can engage our bodies and minds. Using a point scale, these activities are rated for physical aspects as well as mental ones, such as thought and creativity.. Social aspect is a big part of the program; especially for elderly who may have lost a spouse and no longer have kids around. Because of the importance of social interaction, activities such as dancing get very high marks, while more solitary pursuits might rate lower. The goal isn't to eliminate solitary pursuits, some, like reading, are important for mental acuity. But crafting an overall activity plan.While developing good physical, mental and social habits are important for any age, Master Class is clearly aimed at retired people who are in generally good health and wish to stay that way. Perhaps in another 20 years, this would prove more value to me; but for now it affirms that I'm taking appropriate measures now that will hopefully pay off in the form of a healthier, happier, longer life.
