Gwen Hudson says
This podcast was very enlightening. I appreciate as a seasoned adult that you addressed the aging process. Life is good and we have to live each day doing what we love. Age should not restrict us. Continue living as a healthy adult, not as an older person. The mind has a lot to do with it. If you keep healthy thoughts, then your physical state will be much better.
yes to all of that! thanks for listening and happy to hear you enjoyed the episode
