Second Wind Tour; Aging with Grace

MEMPHIS, TN.- Taking a look at living a more fulfilled and connected life Dr. Bill Thomas and Dr. Janet Taylor paired together to take on their “Second Wind Tour”.

The tour is inspired by Dr. Thomas’s book “Second Wind”. He is bringing a radical new approach to growth and aging through a national “non-fiction” theatrical tour produced in partnership with AARP’s Life Reimagined, Capital Impact Partners, and more than three dozen sponsor organizations. Drs. Thomas and Taylor will visit 25 cities across the U.S. for the tour.

Dr. Taylor said, “This tour is sponsored by AARP life reimagined. It’s an interactive experience that really allows people to learn about what it means to get older, learn about elders, find out information about local resources and truly be inspired about the reality that no matter what your age is you’re not done yet and that we can continue to learn and share and explore our passion and purpose throughout our life span.”

Dr. Janet Taylor has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, The Today Show and many other programs to share her knowledge with the people. Dr. Janet Taylor is a Community Psychiatrist in New York and was a recipient of the 2008 “Women in Medicine Award” from the National Medical Association’s “Council on Concerns of Women Physicians”. She also has a column in “Family Circle” magazine called, “Ask Dr. Janet”.

As people get older, they may have a difficult time with coping that they don’t look the way they once used to.

Taylor said, “If you have a sense of yourself and have a sense of purpose and don’t get lost in this message that you have to look the way you did when you were twenty, which is unrealistic, and whatever body you have, as long as you’re living and breathing and doing the right thing, then that’s great; you can move forward. The reality is our young people need us to feel good about ourselves, our young people need us to share how they have made it through different transitions. It’s really about tapping into your own power and being able to instill hope into other people.”

She hopes that people can perceive aging with some excitement because of what it brings to you, not what it takes away.

Dr. Taylor and Dr. Bill Thomas will not be speaking in Mississippi, but they will be in Memphis and are strongly encouraging anyone in Mississippi that wants to attend to join them at their Memphis engagement. The event is from 1-5, free admission, Wednesday, May 21st at Minglewood Hall.
