The Swedish Art of Ageing Well by Margareta Magnusson.
In her first book, Margareta Magnusson shared with the world the practical Swedish tradition of ‘death cleaning’. Now she is able to focus on what makes each day worth living, and reveals her discoveries about growing older — some difficult to accept and many rather wondrous.
She reflects on her idyllic childhood on the west coast of Sweden and the fullness of her life with her husband and five children. Throughout, she offers advice on how to age gracefully. As with death-cleaning, it’s never too early to begin. The Swedish Art of Ageing Well shows us how to prepare for and understand the ageing process, and the joys and sorrows it can bring.
While Margareta still recommends downsizing and decluttering (your loved ones will thank you!), her ultimate message is that we should not live in fear of death, but rather focus on appreciating beauty, connecting with our loved ones, and enjoying our time together. Wise, funny, and practical, The Swedish Art of Ageing Well is a gentle and welcome reminder that, no matter your age, there are always fresh discoveries ahead, and pleasures both new and familiar to be enjoyed every day.
