AGELESS AGING – A Woman’s Guide To Increasing Healthspan, Brainspan, and Lifespan

AGELESS AGING – A Woman’s Guide to Increasing Healthspan, Brainspan, and Lifespan


Women now live six years longer than men—yet, for most, the last decade of life can be plagued with cascading poor health and a lack of purpose. In other words, women’s healthspans and lifespans are out of sync. What if there was a way for women to extend not only their longevity but their quality of life?

In AGELESS AGING: A Woman’s Guide to Increasing Healthspan, Brainspan, and Lifespan (Mayo Clinic Press, May 14th, 2024), aging and longevity expert Maddy Dychtwald provides a holistic and practical guide based on cutting-edge research that helps women take advantage of the scientific, psychological, and physical knowledge and tools to feel vital, youthful, and purposeful into your 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond.

Maddy Dychtwald

Recognized by Forbes as one of the top fifty female futurists globally for almost 40 years, Maddy Dychtwald has been a leader in aging and longevity. She’s the co-founder of Age Wave, long considered North America’s leading think tank and consultancy on aging, longevity, and retirement issues, and has spent much of her life researching these issues.

Dychtwald points out that we are currently in the beginning stages of a longevity revolution with women at the forefront. Women hold the power to change the aging narrative once and for all, by emphasizing the gifts of long life and taking steps to minimize physical and mental decline. For example, incorporating movement into your daily life, viewing food as medicine, fuel, and pleasure, learning new skills to keep your brain active, taking control of your hormones, and pinpointing purpose and connection in your everyday life can create massive, positive ripple effects. She also shows how creating more financial freedom is an integral ingredient in the holistic recipe to live better longer.

Throughout this book, Dychtwald also shares simple and actionable steps to help women increase their healthspans, brainspans, and lifespans, including tips, techniques, and hacks (many of which are low-cost or no-cost) such as:

  • Spend three minutes a day moving quickly,
  • Eat five differently colored foods per day,
  • Choose and stick to a consistent wake-up time,
  • Schedule a regular money talk with your partner/spouse,
  • Reframe negative experiences with more positive thoughts,
  • And so much more.

Gone are the days when life loses its meaning after 60 or 70 years. Written for both beginners and wellness veterans, Ageless Aging is an actionable, joyful, and trustful guide on how to live and thrive during your second (and third!) act and reveals how anyone can create their own holistic recipe for ageless aging.
