She has previously been named in TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People.Dr Elissa Epel is a leading health psychologist who has conducted pioneering research uncovering the psychobiological mechanisms related to how stress ages us and compromises our health-from emotional eating to unhealthy storage of abdominal fat to telomere shortening.
"Blackburn and Epel demonstrate that how we live each day has a profound effect not just on our health and well-being, but how we age, as well. It's a manual for how to live younger and longer.""This exciting book will become a classic. It explains how we can slow the way we age at the most elemental cellular level.""A revolutionary set of findings that can transform the way we live our lives, shaping the very health of our cells by how we use our minds." - Daniel J. Siegel, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Brainstorm"The long and the short of a new science revealing that how we live our lives, both inwardly and outwardly, individually and collectively, impinges significantly on our health, our well-being, and even our longevity. This book is an invaluable, rigorously authentic, and at its core, exceedingly compassionate and wise contribution to our understanding of health and well-being."
