Frank Lieberman- Part 5
One step in achieving a longer lifespan, according to Time, is to “get back some of what we lose by our overfed, overstressed, and under active lifestyles.” Television’s popular Dr. Mehmet Oz gave his prescription for living long and living well.  He suggest we get daily rigorous physical activity, expose ourselves to 15 minutes of sun every day, choose foods that look the same way when you eat them as when they come out of the ground, sleep more than seven hours a day, and finally, have a purpose in life-involving family, work, community.

I became interested in horses and riding and the sport of Ride & Tie helped me to work through my divorce.  More importantly, my quest resulted in quality friendships, and becoming part of a much larger family.  Bob Edwards, for example, a man significantly older than me, became a friend and role model for my life.  I met world-class athletes such as Tom Johnson, Mark Richtman, Brian Purcell, Jim Howard, Tim Twietmeyer and Dennis Rinde to name just a few.  It is not uncommon to find athletes entered in the 70s age group of their events.  To paraphrase Freud, “Love and work are necessary to become a healthy individual.”  To this statement to I would add: “Finding passion and meaning.”  For me, it is undeniably true that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.
