Summary According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics there are more than 3 million Australians over the age of 65, and this number is only going to grow (in fact it's the fastest growing demographic in Australia). Thanks to compulsory superannuation many of these older Australians are relatively well prepared financially. However few, if any, are adequately prepared psychologically!The good news is that many older Australians are well educated and keen to take the initiative in looking after themselves and keeping fit and healthy so as to continue living a full and rich life. In Live Happier Live Longer Dr Sharp focuses on the key things people can do to increase their happiness and wellbeing as they get older, from emphasizing the importance of positive thinking and the benefits of physical activity, sleep and relaxation to the practical benefits of continuing to strive towards motivating goals. With loneliness a major issue amongst the elderly, he also provides tips on keeping in contact with family and friends, as well as making new friendships. This is the perfect book for anyone over 50 who wants to live a long and happy life.
