Want to age more slowly? Try mindfulness. At least one study links staying young with being mindful. When I was reading about the study I was, well, er, mindful about a book Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister wrote recently in which she essentially argues that one's biological clock can be influenced by one's spiritual or psychological clock. She calls it aging gracefully. I like that too.
