“Maggy is a senior who believes in greeting each day with a joyful attitude and I can tell you, she is an absolute delight to chat with. If you want to be inspired, senior or not, join us for a wonderful chat about how, no matter your age, you can create joy and magic in your life. She dances with those two concepts every day.”
“In this episode Nigel talks to Maggy Pigott, who has written a book called ‘How to Age Joyfully’ with a Foreword by Dame Judi Dench. The book sets out her eight steps to a happier, fuller life. It’s full of useful tips and amusing or very pertinent quotes. If you don’t feel more positive after following her advice – well, you will, so there’s no alternative outcome! Maggy also reveals how her love of dance has brought her to better health. As for me – well, I’ve had my first cappuccino for 3 months, so things are looking up!”
I spoke on the Retirement Cafe podcast with Justin King in November 2019.
“This is the second episode in our series about Changing the Perceptions of Ageing. Maggy is relishing retirement after a distinguished 37-year career in the legal profession. She has discovered the immense joys of dancing, Twitter and volunteering, including being Vice Chair of ‘Open Age’ – a London charity that helps thousands of people over 50 lead healthy, happy and fulfilled lives. Maggy has recently published her book ‘How to Age Joyfully: Eight Steps to a Happier, Fuller Life’, inspired by her experience of retirement so far. Maggy discusses her experience and why she believes we can age joyfully.”
“We’re all living longer—but how can we ensure that we’re living better? The author of How to Age Joyfully, Maggy Pigott, offers her advice on treating our twilight years as something to enjoy and celebrate.”
In May 2019 I was invited on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, with Ashton Applewhite, American author and anti-ageism activist.
