About this Event

The event will discuss a number of steps, and offer some practical tips and uplifting quotes, to help us make the most of our lives, whatever our age - and even in the midst of a pandemic.

Maggy Pigott will share how her sixties have become her happiest and most surprising decade (so far), including getting her first book, “How to Age Joyfully: Eight Steps to a Happier, Fuller Life”, published at 68! The book, with a Foreword by Dame Judi Dench, has received positive reviews and endorsements, including from experts in the health and ageing world. Sir Muir Gray (Professor and Consultant in Public Health, first Chief Knowledge Officer for the NHS, author and more) has called it ‘an outstanding book…a manifesto for living better longer’

In these challenging times, it is extremely important to look after ourselves and others. Fortunately, research and evidence has shown there are actions we can take, and behaviours we can adopt, to help improve our physical and mental health and social wellbeing.

As Mae West said: 'You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough'.

Maggy will be interviewed by Nigel Osner about her book which will be followed by a Q&A session.
