This is the podcast for two types of people: those who embrace the aging process and are going through it enthusiastically; and those younger people who want to develop the proper mindset and habits that will enable them to age awesomely when that time arrives.
REJUVENAGING is the art and science of growing older with enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is one of the most under-rated of emotions. It is the driver that
activates passion, proactivity, and a positive mindset.
The REJUVENAGING podcast focuses on developing the skills and behaviors that lead to enhanced physical and mental health throughout the lifespan. The podcast features guests from various walks of life with varying perspectives but with the common purpose of living enthusiastically and helping others to do so. Guests are interviewed by positive health psychologist and author, Dr. Ron Kaiser. One of his claims to fame is that he has failed miserably at being a typical old guy. At age 81, he works full-time and stays fit – physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially. He shares his secrets and guidance in this regard – both in his interactions with his guests in personal training podcasts that take place once a month.
Listen to the REJUVENAGING Podcast; get in touch with your awesomeness; and learn to maintain positive balance in your life. It’s never too early or too late to start

    Jeff highlights the benefits of a consistent meditative practice, such as improved physical health, mental clarity, emotional stability, and overall well-being. He advises listeners to start with practices that resonate personally, whether it's sitting meditation, Tai Chi, or Qigong, and emphasizes the adaptability of meditative practices to suit individual lifestyles and goals.
    In his conversation with Dr. Ron, Jeff discusses how different groups, including those struggling to relax, athletes, older adults, and children, can benefit from meditative practices. He provides examples and anecdotes to illustrate the transformative power of these practices.
    Jeff also talks about his book, "The Yielding Warrior," and his online programs. Listeners can access these resources to start their own meditative journey by visiting theyieldingwarrior.com.
