"[Hannah Grufferman's] narrative voice directs the fun, upbeat tone, but it is the value-packed research on numerous themes and her encouraging advice to take small steps to create healthier habits that make you want to go back to it again, knowing that you will not be preached at, or chastised, like some other self-help books." –Irish Examiner
“This is a thorough guide. No part of your body or midlife experience has been overlooked…It’s a well-researched encyclopedia that reads like caring post-it notes from your smart big sister.”
"Important message!" –Diane von Furstenberg
“That positive feeling led to [Barbara Hannah Grufferman] completing five marathons, writing three anti-aging books, including her latest, Love Your Age, becoming an AARP ambassador and staying medication-free.” –CBN News
"Barbara Hannah Grufferman's new book will motivate women of all ages to take much better care of themselves by exercising, eating for good health and making an effort to value self-care. She includes key information on health checks with inspirational advice on how to potentially lengthen your healthspan. I particularly enjoyed the important chapters on brain health. She offers great tips on how to keep your brain sharp, and how happiness is essential to overall health and wellbeing. The other chapters focus on style, sex, and relationships are also delightful. I loved this book and will recommend it so that others can add healthy habits to their wellness tool box."
- Margaret Nachtigall, M.D., Reproductive Endocrinologist

She shares the latest research on fitness, nutrition, brain health and so much more, and encourages us to think about swapping out bad habits for healthy ones. Barbara’s recommended small steps—based on science—will empower all of us to live better, longer, happier lives.” –Dr. Deborah Antoine, CEO, Women’s Sports Foundation

One of my favorite parts of the book is that it includes suggestions on how to stay healthy within the changes women can experience as we age. In nursing, we call that health promotion. In more lay terms it is focusing on wellness. Following much of the advice in the book offers a much better chance of not experiencing some of what some may think are inevitable parts of aging. For example the chapter on Sleep is a must read. Barbara notes the importance of sleep and rightfully calls it one of the pillars of health.
Love the quotes that begin each chapter. Some are humorous and made me laugh out loud, others are spot on and inspirational. I strongly recommend this book and suggest you buy at least 2 – one for you and one for your best friend. This is not a loaner type of book, but one to keep for yourself and reference over and over again.
It's the kind of book you can refer to again and again. User-friendly, it easily answers our age-related questions. With page headings such as, "Follow Your Gut To Better Health," and "10 Small Steps to a Lifelong Fitness Habit," and "The Ups and Downs of our Emotional Habits," Grufferman pays attention to all of us--not just some of us with a singular problem or health concern. Attention to detail stands out, beginning with quotes from notables such as Hippocrates and even Jefferey Eugenides and Victor Hugo! Buy this book and leave it where you can see it. You'll be referring to it often. I know I am!
