We all want to age well. But can we, as individuals, increase our chances of a good later life? Maggy Pigott, will be discussing how we can achieve this, based on her personal experience and what she discovered whilst researching her successful book ‘How to Age Joyfully: Eight Steps to a Happier, Fuller Life.’
Maggy will explain the ‘what, why and how’ of living better for longer, and share some practical tips.
And, as highlighted in this Festival of Belonging, you will discover that connecting with others is one of the most critical ingredients for a life well lived.

Meet the Host, Maggy Pigott
Having qualified as a barrister, she enjoyed a 37-year career in the Civil Service, retiring in 2011 with a CBE.
Over the last decade she has developed passions for dancing, writing and helping others age better, including through her role as Vice Chair of the London charity, Open Age (www.openage.org.uk ).
This inspired her first book, 'How to age Joyfully' (with a Foreword by Dame Judi Dench) published by Summersdale Ltd, when she was 68.
Her other interests include volunteering, and having fun with family and friends .
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
