This episode is dedicated to Mark Sisson’s recent article in the June/July 2019 issue of Paleo Magazine titled “11 Lessons I’ve Learned About Aging Well.” We’re going to take a deeper look through the article and all the great wisdom that Mark shares across these 11 steps, including sleep, relationships, diet and more. Whether you get this info here on the podcast or just go straight to the source and read it in the magazine, make sure you hear what one of the greats has to say about something we all, hopefully, have to do: get older. Mark’s practical attitude and learned experience goes a long way to filling in some of the gaps and myths that are expounded in today’s health world. He offers a holistic and achievable framework to ensure getting older does not mean getting worse.
