Death is an inevitability. While this remains to be a hard pill to swallow, we all still have a choice whether to live and hold life’s mystery in gentle hands or live in the anxious unknowingness of it. Guest of this episode would dare say the former. Host, Adam Markel, sits with Dr. Ken Druck to talk about this challenging topic. Dr. Druck is an authority on courageous living, a bestselling author, a mental health expert, and an overall authority whose work in psychology over the years has included executive consulting, visionary leadership, the psychology of men, parent effectiveness, healing after loss, resilience, and courageous aging. Unleashing his expertise to us in this episode, Dr. Druck talks about dying, the process of getting older, and the cycle of life. He talks about the noble struggles we face each time we are thinking about mortality, understanding the paradoxes that lay beneath. Living life not only for ourselves but others as well, Dr. Druck then discusses the ways we show up, specifically in relation to Raising an Aging Parent—a title of his book—and living the second half of life. There are still many great insights that await for you from Dr. Druck in this episode on making our life count, even as we get older, so don’t miss out!
