Despite the media here in the UK predicting dire consequences to the NHS as a result of the prevalence of obesity in society, the same media are telling us that a significant proportion of the population will live to be a hundred. This prediction is based on advances in medicine but also an awareness every aspect of personal health that can enhance and sustain longevity from exercise, diet, work/life balance, relationships and much more. The emotional foundation of longevity is happiness, fulfillment and the capacity to love and be loved unconditionally. Therapy, and specifically hypnotherapy, helps to create, nurture and sustain the emotional foundation of longevity. Thus the possibility of reaching a century becomes possible.
