Jane Fonda, the #1 bestselling author, actress, and workout
pioneer, explores in this inspiring book how to make all of your life Prime Time.
Sex, love, food, fitness, self-understanding, spiritual and social
growth—Fonda writes with candor and courage about her own life and the
experiences of others to give us a blueprint for living well and making
the most of life, especially the second half of it.
been a “longevity revolution.” The average human life expectancy has
jumped by years. Fonda asks, What are we meant to do with this precious
gift of time? How can we understand ourselves better, be healthier, and
maximize the bonus years of maturity? Featuring new research, Fonda
shows how the critical years from 45 or 50, and from 60 and beyond, can
be times when we truly become the vital, loving, fulfilled people we
were meant to be. Covering the 11 key ingredients for successful living,
Fonda invites you to consider with her how to live a more insightful,
vital, fully integrated life, a life lived more profoundly in touch with
ourselves, our bodies, minds, and spirits, and with our talents,
friends, and communities.
Fonda writes about two visions of
life, the arch and the staircase, exploring how to see your life the
“staircase” way, as one of continual ascent. She explains how she came
to understand the decades of her life by performing a life review, and
how you can do it 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.
Fonda writes about how we can navigate the “fertile voids” that life
periodically presents to us. She makes suggestions about exercises
(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,
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
your own life Prime Time.
