2019 Lifestyle Workshop Series

Summer - Lifestyle

I'm positive, I'm aging

What is the secret to successful aging? Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with your income, being free from illness, or a life free from disappointments. Living a healthy lifestyle, but also maintaining a positive attitude and friendships are just a few ways to age well.

“I’m positive, I’m aging” will help participants explore the characteristics of positive aging and making the most of our later years. There will also be a discussion on ageism and how it affects those of all ages, as well as the many similarities older generations have with younger ones.

  • Facilitated by the educators of the University of Illinois Extension Office
  • About two hours long, depending on participation
  • Registration is required
  • Free of charge!

The 2019 lifestyle series runs from July 17 to August 20. We look forward to seeing you there!
