Healthy Ageing: The Age Wise Approach

 

Age Wise!, devised by Diana Kingham,  is a unique approach to creating the optimum future for you. It challenges assumptions, uncovers your unhelpful beliefs, habits and hidden ‘programming’ – all of which can run your life (including your health) without you being aware of it.

Age Wise! offers a bespoke service which helps you design and realise the future you want for yourself. To really listen to yourself and your dreams, discover your passions and potential …     I believe anything is possible once you get your mind & imagination on board!  It is never too early or too late to start making changes.  You really do hold the keys to unlocking your inner resources and potential.

 Many of us find that, even with the best will in the world and following expert advice, something in us sabotages our plans.  That we unquestioningly assume something to be inevitable and live accordingly only to find out later that it wasn’t true.  It isn’t what happens to us that is important, it is the decisions we make about it – and these can be easily changed.

This is a complementary approach, working alongside more conventional practices in health & well-being with innovative techniques to remove the obstacles you put in your own way and install new appropriate ‘programming’ to live the life you want.

Age Wise! combines changing your mind about ageing with re-inventing your future (or retirement as was).  I believe that the two are intricately linked – have a future you are passionate about is a compelling reason to age well; and ageing well is, for most of us, an essential part of living an the exciting life we have planned.

According to Deepak Chopra, taking care of your physical body may only be 50% of the formula for ageing well.   Changing your thoughts and beliefs, having soulful, intimate relationships, daily routine & a sense of living for the world beyond yourself all contribute to a a life full of meaning and healthy longevity.  Beliefs really do affect our biology.

My experience with health issues, particularly chronic ones,  is that  your mind has the power to effect huge changes both for the better and worse.  So that working with your mind, the unconscious especially,  alongside conventional approaches is key.

So, if nothing is set in stone, and our beliefs and buying into our societal expectations are more important factors in ageing than our genes plus lifestyle choices put together - isn’t it time to become Age Wise and create the future you choose?

Think of the benefits you can gain by:

  • identifying & getting rid of those old ageing beliefs and installing new healthy ones;
  • living mindfully rather than just buying into the expectations of your society;
  • modelling those who lead a happy and healthy old age;
  • noticing all the things that are going well in your life rather than focusing on those you judge aren’t working;
  • improving your lifestyle choices to take care of yourself;
  • harmony and balance
  • a holistic approach;

What have you to loose?  If you believe that ageing is something that happens to you (your genes, your society & your upbringing), basically you are a helpless victim.  If you believe that ageing is something you have learned, you retain the power of choice and can change what isn’t working.  Whatever you believe becomes your reality.  Which reality are you choosing?

 

Age Wise!  is not a replacement for conventional medical practice or complementary medicine. It enhances and adds to all of these, empowering the individual to take action using the resources they already possess to positively affect their health and life in general.

Awareness in Action

“There’s an aphorism made famous by the late Norman Cousins: ‘Belief creates biology.’ No truer statement was ever made about aging. Our inherited expectation that the body must wear out over time, coupled with deep beliefs that we are fated to suffer, grow old, and die, creates the biological phenomenon we call aging. Life is awareness in action. Despite the thousands of hours of old tapes that program our responses, we continue to live because awareness finds new ways to flow. The positive side of awareness — its ability to heal — is always available,”
