“Active & Ageless: Why Full Retirement Is No Longer A Smart Choice” is a book-in-progress by George Lorenzo, to be published by George’s self- publishing arm, UnderstandingXYZ, in the Fall of 2016. Active & Ageless is segmented into five sections that are consistently being updated with resources and articles as George works on the book. Longevity - On the medical advances and advice that are enabling more people to live longer and healthier lives well into their 90s. What’s Your Place? - About the most advantagous locations for you to pursue a good life that’s consistent with your needs and desires as you age.  The Psychology of Aging - Covers mental health, happiness and overall well- being. The Sociology of Aging - Describes the social side of aging. The Spirituality of Aging - Philosophizes about religious preferences and how what you believe affects how you decide to live and die.  In additon, George writes and publishes a related blog where vistiors can comment and share. He also writes and publishes a weekly, self- subscription, electronic newsletter.
Why Active & Ageless? The idea for using the term “Active & Ageless” came from an April 2002 report published by the World Health Organization titled “Active Ageing: A Policy Framework.” The report defines active ageing (note the British spelling with a “e”) as “the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age. It applies to both individuals and population groups. Active ageing allows people to realize their potential for physical, social, and mental well-being throughout the life course and to participate in society, while providing them with adequate protection, security and care.” See more at http://www.who.int/ageing/active_ageing/en/. The word “ageless” simply refers to the notion of age being only a number. While we, of course, inevitably grow older and inevitably die, we can at least try to stay young mentally and continue to strive for the most optimal physical health that is consistent with our complex individual selves.

While we certainly continue to grow older, we can at the very least remain young mentally and try our best at remaining as young as feasibly possible physically,
