The Growing Older, Living Younger Project

Welcome to the Growing Older, Living Younger Project

 

The Growing Older, Living Younger Project will empower you to change your aging process at the cellular level, to feel vibrant, healthy and energetic as you age. Through the lens of epigenetic science, we will explore the small steps you can take on a daily basis, to change your aging trajectory and promote health span over lifespan.

New research reveals that what you think, how you move, what you eat, how you interact with others, stimulate your mind or challenge yourself, can modulate expression of your genes. You inherit your genetic blueprint from your parents. But you construct the person that you become.

The GOLY Project Roadmap to healthy aging is based on modulating gene expression though lifestyle changes in 6 core areas, as introduced in my book Growing Older, Living Younger: The Science of Aging Gracefully and the Art of Retiring Comfortably.

This website is your hub for all things related to The Growing Older, living Younger Project. The GOLY Project Blog, Podcast links, Sources and Resources.
