If there’s one thing aging forces us to do, it is to pay attention to our bodies in ways we’ve never paid attention to them before. In fact, your body will demand it.

Nuland teaches readers how to view the process of aging as an artform to embrace, as opposed to a disease to combat.
Indeed, a large part of the art of aging is practicing regular self-care. As mentioned, paying attention to what you are consuming and how often you are moving are vital elements of this.
