Podcast’s Essential Bites:

[8:15] “Our brain is not really wired to take in every bit of information there is that we are exposed to. […] I think what’s important is to be selective. And that might actually be something that gets better with age.”

[8:51] “Our visual memory is not designed to encode every detail. Especially if it’s irrelevant. And it’s almost this trick that the more you see something, the less you notice.”

[19:53] “Our expectations can influence how we age. […] People who have positive attitudes about aging tend to age well.”

[39:44] “Our subjective age is a better predictor of how long we’ll live than our biological age.”

[40:07] “The ABCs of aging - the first is staying active, […] B is balance, […] and the last one C is connection. […] If you follow those simple rules, […] you can age well.”
