Keeping Your Informed July 31st

Keeping You Informed

afternoon for Friday July 31st….a beautiful sunny end to a rather warm month. Here in Ottawa, we had the dubious honour of breaking a heat record on July 9th when it warmed up to a whopping 35.8C. The previous record was 34.3C back on July 10th, 1988.

no economic or otherwise inspiring business news to share, we landed on a podcast by author Daniel Levitin PhD. Dr. Levitin came into view about a year ago when he wrote Successful Aging and drew my attention during a CBC interview. Not only a neuroscientist, cognitive psychologist and bestselling author, Dr. Levitin is a musician and music producer for the likes of Sting and Joni Mitchell. There is much to say about the ideas and evidence that Dr. Levitin and his colleagues share appealing to all age groups.

Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, we're living longer, on average, than at any time in history. So why do so many of us act like our last decades are a time to lower our expectations? Neuroscientist and musician Daniel Levitin says old age can be whatever we want it to be. He went deep into the science for his new book, “Successful Aging,” and he’s emerged with some tips.

We have attached a podcast link (tested and hope easy to open. It works best in Google Chrome).

Best of the long weekend to all,

Joanne, Al & the Team at Livingston MacDonald Wealth Management
