In this inspiring and candid book, Jane Fonda, #1 bestselling
author, actress, and workout pioneer, gives us a blueprint for
living well and for making the most of life, especially the second
half of it. Covering sex, love, food, fitness, self-understanding,
spiritual and social growth, and your brain. In Prime
Time, she offers a vision for successful living and maturing,
A to Z.
Highlighting new research and stories from her own life and from
the lives of others, Jane Fonda explores how the critical years
from 45 and 50, and especially from 60 and beyond, can be times
when we truly become the energetic, loving, fulfilled people we
were meant to be. Covering the 11 key ingredients for vital living,
Fonda invites you to consider with her how to live a more
insightful, healthy, and fully integrated life, a life lived more
profoundly in touch with ourselves, our bodies, minds, and spirits,
and with our talents, friends, and communities.
In her research, Fonda discovered two metaphors, the arch and the
staircase, that became for her two visions of life. She shows how
to see your life the "staircase" way, as one of continual ascent.
She explains how she came to understand the earlier decades of her
life by performing a life review, and she shows how you can do a
life review too. She reveals how her own life review enabled her to
let go of old patterns, to see what means the most to her, and then
to cultivate new goals and dreams, to make the most of the mature
years. For there has been a "longevity revolution," and the average
human life expectancy has jumped by years. Fonda asks, what we are
meant to do with this precious gift of time? And she writes about
how we can navigate the "fertile voids" that life periodically
presents to us. She makes suggestions about exercise (including
three key movements for optimal health), diet (how to eat by
color), meditation, and how learning new things and creating fresh
pathways in your brain can add quality to your life. Fonda writes
of positivity, and why many people are happier in the second half
of their lives than they have ever been before.
In her #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, My Life
So Far, Jane Fonda focused on the first half of her
extraordinary life-what she called Acts I and II-with an eye toward
preparing for a vibrant Act III. Now we have a thoughtfully
articulated memoir and guide for how to make all of your life, and
especially Act III, Prime Time.
