E30: 7 Domains of Turning 30
Why is turning 30 a cultural phenomenon—and, usually, not in a happy way? Evolution tells us women are physiologically prime to be at our peak during our early to mid-thirties. As such, there are often expectations of social milestones such as marriage and raising a family. For some women, turning 30 signifies "the end of youth." Dr. Kirtly Jones discusses the biological and social significance of turning 30 for women, and how the milestone age impacts the seven domains of our lives.

Why do we live long, and why don't we live longer? The aging process is inevitable, but a decline in function in many domains of a woman's health is not inevitable.

Sleep is vital to how we function as living creatures. We spend approximately 1/3 of our lives sleeping—some more, some less—but we all sleep.

Our desire to know about the world around us is an important character strength as humans. Walt Disney once said, "Curiosity keeps us moving forward, exploring, experimenting, opening new doors."

Dr. Kirtly Jones discusses how curiosity, or lack thereof, can be a predictor of health.

E18: 7 Domains of Time
The joke goes, "Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana." Time theoretically runs at the same pace for every living species on this planet.

When you're younger you have all the time in the world. And when you're older you might feel there's not enough time. Time, though often used to measure durations, can also measure how we live our lives.
