"Reversing aging" is just marketing-speak for "improving health." Worrying about being old will naturally cause stress that worsens your health, and cause you to be hypersensitive to how you feel.

That's a really interesting article.

Langer is not advocating that we all don uniforms. Her point is that we are surrounded every day by subtle signals that aging is an undesirable period of decline. These signals make it difficult to age gracefully.
It's no wonder that people worry about getting old. Look at Madonna: 10 years short of pension age and still desperate to look like a 25-year-old. It's seems ironic that not worrying about ageing should be part of the key to defying the ageing process.
