Memorable Quotes:

"And so that was really, really important, keeping that curiosity, because we've seen as people get older, they stay stuck. They are not curious about meeting new people. ‘Oh, I have my circle of friends. I don't need to go out and meet new people. I don't need to learn new things. I have my hobbies that I had for many years.’ But learning new things is always wonderful." [00:06:31] – Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum

"Health coaches—it's completely what we call client-centered. It means that rather than meeting with someone who's the expert telling you what to do, they're going to listen. They're trained in listening. And we all need to feel heard and understood and have that ally. And they'll help you start with wherever you want to start. " [00:33:00] – Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum
