How to make one change to age less so you can play more

When I was young, I played the violin. It sounded ok when I played alone but when I played in the orchestra, that was when it sounded amazing.

And ageing is a bit like the orchestra. It’s not just one instrument, there are many and they need to operate in harmony for the best results.

And it’s no good just tuning the violin for a pure sound, every instrument in the orchestra needs to be in tune.

I find that this analogy makes it easier when talking about ageing.

There are so many claims that this pill or that herb or that juice will keep you youthful. And each of these may be beneficial but they are like violins without an orchestra.

What have Boot Laces got to do with Staying Young?

What have Boot Laces got to do with Staying Young?

I have a pair of boots that I can best describe as 'KILLA' - they are red patent leather, Natasha Marro ankle boots with a black tongue, stiletto heels, cloven hoof toe..... I absolutely love them and always feel a million dollars when I wear them and I definitely feel youthful.

The plastic ends of the laces have come off, though, so it's always a bit of a mission to lace them up as the ends of the laces are frayed. Yes, I could invest in some new laces but I manage with the original. 

So, here's the thing. Our chromosomes have ends on them as well to stop them fraying - the end bits are called TELOMERES. Don't worry, I'm not going to get all sciency on you but if you are interested in preserving your vitality and youthfulness, you'll want to read this.
