The Seven Graces of Ageless Aging
Posted by Literary Titan
The Seven Graces of Ageless Aging by Jason Elias is a comedic guide on how to age more gracefully. The book is broken up into sections and stories that have their own complete messages. This is an ideal book to come back to time and again as needed to read the parts that hit home at the right times. Elias’s “Pathfinders”, as he calls the individuals he interviewed for the book, provide beautiful nuggets of wisdom, as well as practical (often humorous) advice to live by. Their inspirational stories will help you take a look at your life and recognize where you can or should make adjustments to live a more comfortable, more harmonious life with those around you.
This book helps to demystify death and growing old and remove some of the fear by helping one become more comfortable with the concepts. Each of the Seven Graces that Elias discusses has valuable practical application to help fortify the mind, strengthen our beliefs and spirituality, and reinforce the body as much as is physically possible as we age, through advice regarding dieting and exercise.
Initially, I thought this book might be more specifically geared towards older readers, but I find it has given me a lot to think about, as well. I don’t think age need be a deterrent when considering whether or not to read this book. Elias has structured this book and curated his content in such a way that even if you’re a younger reader, this book can address questions, concerns, or even fears you might have about the future, about growing older, and about the finality of death and how to accept that. I also think this book is a great read for anyone who has an older someone in their life that they want to help, as they could easily share the inspirational words and advice provided by these elder Pathfinders (or just lend them the book next!) And it’s not just the personal stories of elders, Elias provides a lot of actual scientific research based on the findings of some very interesting studies from a plethora of scientific professionals. In some cases, Elias even provides links to some online resources for further independent study.
The Seven Graces of Ageless Aging is a quick and easy read with sections you will want to bookmark and come back to later, with several funny anecdotes from the Pathfinders that you will want to share with those around you. A humorous but practical guide on living your best life.
