Happiness & Positive Aging

Happiness & Positive Aging

A lot of _ã–positive aging_㝠is going on out there. Googling the term produced centers, nonprofits, business ventures, and publications, as well as some motivational stuff. Here_ã_s a look at a few random sites:

In 2002, National-Louis University in Chicago instituted its Center for Positive Aging, which promotes continuing education, research, and community engagement. In 2006, the center launched the Lifelong Learning Institute and in 2007 began Project Second Act, a program to help women over 40 achieve economic success. (While the program made me envy those living in Chicago, the cloud pictures on many of the site_ã_s pages, probably meant to be restful, kinda spooked me.)
