NOLS revives ‘Aging Mastery’ program

Back by popular demand, the North Olympic Library System invites older adults to take part in the National Council on Aging’s Aging Mastery Program.

Weekly discussions in March were so successful, library system officials say, that NOLS has decided to add another round of discussions beginning in April.

Meetings take place on Zoom every Monday evening at 6:30 p.m., April 19-May 24.

Visit nols.org or contact a NOLS branch to register for the discussions.

Join in the weekly discussions of the Aging Mastery Playbook, which offers “six dimensions of aging well.” Connect with others to discuss the topics and learn from each other.

There program includes reading and activities provided before each session.

Attendance at all sessions is encouraged, but not required, to participate, NOLS representatives say.

Stop by a NOLS branch to request an Aging Mastery starter kit, a “fun and hands-on experience that encourages people to spend more time each day doing things that are good for themselves and for others.”

This self-paced kit is designed to older adults take small steps to improve their health and quality of life. It includes a book, exercise DVDs, activity cards, and a weekly check-in notepad. Participants do not need a computer to use the materials.

Developed and provided by the National Council on Aging, the kit includes practical tips for aging well across six disciplines: gratitude and mindfulness; health and well-being; finance and future planning; connections and community; learning and creativity, and legacy and purpose.
