The Surprising Pleasures of Living in an Aging Body
Discover how the new science of embodiment can help you experience aging as a vital, optimistic, and transformative journey.
Do you fear that growing old means being trapped in a body filled with aches, pains, sags, and losses? Too many of us do— especially women. Though our youth- obsessed society is partly to blame, Dr. Susan Sands explains there is a deeper and unrecognized factor: we have never really gotten to know our bodies, to sense and feel our bodies from the inside out. With The Inside Story, she offers a much-needed guide for helping us understand, befriend, and support our bodies as we grow older.
Without downplaying the real challenges we face as we age, Dr. Sands offers a wealth of case studies, interviews, and scientific findings to rewrite the common cultural beliefs that put us at odds with our own bodies. Here, she shares a wealth of powerful embodiment tools—including traditional practices such as meditation and yoga, as well as breathing methods, neural feedback techniques, guidance on diet and exercise, and more.
