Paul McIntyre is the host of ABC Radio’s ‘Medical Matters’ and has more than two decades of experience at ABC Radio. He is also a playwright and author. His book, Use It or Lose It, is a guide to remaining vital through mid-life and beyond.

While this conversation represents a slight departure from the usual fare on Future Squared, I figured it would bring a lot of value to listeners when it comes to both living a long and healthy life yourself, as well as caring for any seniors in your life who you may not be able to physically be with during this time of COVID-19.

We unpacked many topics from the book, including:

-       Why body and mind is a false dichotomy

-       What to eat for a ripe old age

-       Exercise and mobility

-       The connection between sleep, anxiety and neurodegenerative disease

-       Community and the value of a flourishing social life

-       Maintaining meaning after retirement

-       The importance of learning

-       Activities seniors can perform to ward off dementia

-       How we can engage seniors and look after them during COVID-19
