WHAT does it take to age happily and healthily? Authors Annabel Streets and Susan Saunders think they may have the answer.

Their new book The Age Well Project takes a comprehensive look at the lifestyle changes people can make in order to enjoy retirement to the fullest.

The authors spent their 30s working and caring for their children and elderly parents.

By the time they had reached their 40s, they were exhausted, stressed and constantly rushing and began to wonder whether the constant ill health and dementia suffered by their parents was avoidable.

They began the arduous task of reading over 50,000 scientific research papers covering all aspects of ageing to find as much advice as they possibly could on how to age healthily.

The book shares 50 key lessons the authors learned from their reading, meals they cooked and a range of expert tips.

Annabel Streets was a founding member of an award winning marketing company, but sold her company and went on to become a successful novelist who has also written for a number of leading Australian publications.

Susan Saunders started her career working in magazine journalism before switching to TV and directing and producing a shows such as Gordon Ramsey's The F-Word and The Restaurant.
