Hey there! I am Zora The Explorer, in my 40s (nearly 50!), a mother of two teens, married to an incredible guy for over 20 years and digital nomad currently living in Hong Kong. I research aging and spent my lifetime reading books, blogs, interviewing, investigating and scouring over scientific studies on what makes us look and feel younger than our biological age. Hey, I am originally from Los Angeles, so this curiosity is embedded into my DNA!
I am interested in evidence-based techniques that slow the aging process to defy our age. I believe in the four pillars to decelerated aging – nutrition, movement, sleep and stress management. Everything we put inside and outside our bodies physically and mentally affect the aging process that is largely under our control. We start aging from the time we are born and there is no one-size-fits-all quick fix to youthful and happy aging. However, there are many things we can do now to have a healthier, happier and more beautiful life span.
It seems like everything has already been said, but sometimes a single word, one idea, one study, one special story resonates so strongly within us at a given time, that we somehow get inspired to change our perspective and receive a well-needed boost of energy. Or maybe we just need to hear it again to “reset” our path to happy aging.
Adept to an active and healthy way of life, I aim to stimulate, inspire and motivate you to celebrate life, increase your healthy and happy lifespan, make positive change and pursue a youthful outlook no matter what your age. We all have the capacity to look younger and feel younger than we are. I love moving outdoors, meeting new people, learning new languages and eating real food that loves me back.
