Summary of Younger by the Day: 365 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit
Inspiring advice and tips for the reversal of aging-mentally and physically-with the promise that readers will look and feel younger after one year's time.
"Wouldn't it be delicious if, even for a little while, I could age in reverse? What if I could short-circuit time and gravity and those psychopathic molecules that oxidize and make the years show up bigger than life? How great would it be if I could get absolution for the suntans and sundaes, the late nights and worrying I indulged in once upon a time, or two weeks ago Thursday?"
With a resounding "Yes!" Victoria Moran's Younger by the Day: An Enlightened Guide to Aging in Reverse, Inside & Out, One Day at a Time, answers these questions and details the physical habits, mental attitudes, and spiritual disciplines that make this not just a lovely dream, but a dream come true.
While we believe we're worried about gray roots and smile lines, the truth is that we're really worried about what these represent: loss of identity, diminished regard from the culture at large, and less time to make the rest of our dreams come true. Younger by the Day does not gloss over this inner angst. Instead, it meets it-with empathy, compassion, humor, and immediately usable information from West and East, medicine and metaphysics. At the end of a year, the reader will look and feel like a younger woman. This book can deliver that promise. One might think of it as Simple Abundance for middle-age: designed to be used over a year's time, directed to women, and coming straight from the heart.
Younger by the Day is light, friendly, honest and witty. More importantly, it's both a practical guide to the adventure of growing younger and an inspiring companion for the journey. While many of the books are written by physicians or models, Victoria is much more like the reader herself. She's a big sister, a best friend, and she knows what it's like to be afraid of entering a new phase of life, has overcome those fears, and looks substantially younger because of it. The reader benefits from Victoria's experience with 365 select techniques to help her love her age instead of look it.
