The goal of the Growing Older Living Younger podcast is to show you how small changes in lifestyle and habits can have a big impact on your health and vitality as you age. The way we develop, mature and age, is governed by an ongoing complex interaction of our genome, the DNA blue print we get from our parents, with our environment. This synergy of nature and nurture makes us who we become by switching genes on and off. This is the biological force we call epigenetics. One such factor that has a major effect on our health and our aging, is the duration and the quality of our sleep.
With me today, to talk about the importance of sleep, particularly to many in midlife who are too busy to prioritize sleep over just getting things done, is Larisa Petrini.
Larisa is the founder of BODYOLOGY, a proprietary system designed to help high performing women reverse their age and sizzle with energy and confidence in their midlife years. Hundreds of high achieving women have sought her help to get back in shape, overcome chronic fatigue, solve dry and sagging skin and deal with moods and hormonal imbalances. Larisa studied Health, Nutrition, Sleep and Epigenetics at Cornell University, Precision Nutrition and Apeiron ZOH.
Larisa shares with us the life events that led her to become an age reversal coach. Then focusing on sleep, we discuss the importance of maintaining good sleep habits as we age, what happens to our brains and our bodies when we sleep and how we make sure the sleep we get is high-quality and of adequate duration.
