Why the longevity revolution could be a catalyst for us to slow down and enjoy life – all of life.
As human beings, we have evolved a stress-response system that is based on a balance between doing and being. For far too long we thought that we could get away with incessantly doing stuff during the first part of our lives and saving the being till retirement. It is obvious that it isn´t working out for us – neither for the young, the middle-aged nor the older. The extra years we have been given could motivate us to finally slow down during the first part of our lives and be able to enjoy our extended lives to the fullest.
