One thing we cannot change is that we are aging every single day. The question is how do we age and what is the science and research behind aging. In 10 minutes a day, you will learn about both the theory of aging as well as have the chance to apply the concepts into your daily life. This 'micro-learning course' will help you 'age well.'
