Healthy Aging Protocols: A Personalized Approach



The primary intent of the Project Nof1 Interview series is to showcase people's different healthy aging protocols and share the stories of how they designed and are actively curating their healthy aging plans and strategies on their own terms.

Design your own protocol

If you are interested in designing your own protocol but don't know where to start, sign up for the Project Nof1 newsletter to be informed of a free three part Protocol Club workshop which will help you design your own protocol. The workshop is comprised of three parts: Part 1: Is all about articulating what your healthy aging goals are, imagining your future self and working backwards from these scenarios to design your personalized heathy aging protocol.


Part 2: Will focus on understanding the data that needs to be tracked and measured as part of your identified healthy aging protocol.


Part 3: Aims to map out how the health aging protocol you designed will be implemented into your life.

Upcoming Healthy Aging Protocol Interviews

The next set of healthy aging protocol interviews is currently in the making and it will focus on one of the healthy aging practices that all longevity and healthspan researchers and scientists agree on which is: meaningful human connection.

In an age of loneliness and social isolation this is a particularly important topic and the next set of interviews explores healthy aging protocols that feature a strong "meaningful human connection" component. You can subscribe to Project Nof1 on YouTube and in audio format on Spotify and Amazon Music to get access to them as soon as they come out.
