Podcast Episode #20 - Getting Younger As You Get Older

Episode #20 of the Xtraordinary Living podcast is out. The topic is "Getting Younger As You Get Older." In this episode I interviewed Allan Remillard of Palm Desert. Allan and his beautiful wife, Martha, have the distinct honor of being Productive Learning & Leisure's most "senior" clients – (in their late 70s, early 80s). As trainers whose job it is to help our clients understand what's going on in their heads, both Lindon and I have been both intrigued and amazed at the extraordinary thinking Allan and Martha bring to their lives. In this podcast I ask Allan how they continue to grow younger as they grow older.

In Episode #20 Allan explains:
> Why he resists joining the "Turtle Club."
> How he and Martha nurture their strong and caring relationship.
> Ways they consciously exercise both their bodies and minds to stay agile, vibrant and young at heart.
> Why it's important to keep from "getting stuck" into fear-based thinking.
> How his mind said, "How can you go to Machu Pichu with a group of people 30 years younger?" and how he answered with, "Of course we can."
> The advice he would give people 20 to 50 years old, in order for them to be in the physical and mental condition he and Martha are now.

I can see where it could be so easy to be lazy, and indifferent =similar to a turtle==playing it safe but not challenging or exciting. We all know that our mind is like a muscle--it needs to constantly be active to be alive and well. Pll provides the gym of the mind.
