Play • 33 min

How do you feel about aging? And, how do your thoughts about aging impact your health? Our guest on this episode is Dr. Becca Levy, professor of Public Health and Psychology at Yale. She says your age beliefs are so powerful that they define how you experience your later years.

Dr. Levy is credited with creating the field of study that focuses on how positive and negative age stereotypes can have beneficial and adverse effects, respectively, on the health of older people. Her new book is called, “Breaking the Age Code: How Your Beliefs About Aging Determine How Long and Well You Live”.
