Live It! Revision Your Life with Zara Altair


Simple daily acts can enrich your life at any age. As we age creating daily positive acts can eliminate fear, keep depression away, enrich life, and brighten our attitude.

Often authorities approach aging with big theories and big words like affirmations, cognitive resonance, neuroscience. These are great theories but enacting on a daily basis works best with actions that transform life into a daily appreciation of life.

Discover your Wow! and Ahh! moments. Increase your awareness. Growth through daily small increments builds positive change. Brighten your outlook on life

When I did my first steps into social media, especially G+, some years ago, Zara Altair was among the first people who reached out to me, answered my questions and gave me encouragement to learn and proceed with my plan to become visible to the world and share my message. Zara already was fully engaged in G+. she had her own weekly show on Hangouts “Midweek Zap” with guests who are celebrities in the field and who gave advice on how to create one’s online presence.

I was blown away by her willingness to learn all that complicated stuff which older people are inclined to leave to the young ones who have grown up with computers. She became an authority in the exploration of technical questions like Search engine Optimization and what not. Later she dedicated her time more on writing and several fun-to-read novels have already seen the light.

One thing which Zara can teach to all of us older folks: YOU CAN DO IT! Just begin, figure out how things work, go on as long as you find it useful and then find the next thing which you are interested in exploring.


Zara Altair is a writer of fiction and non-fiction. Her research interest is Italy under Ostrogoth rule in the early 6th Century. Her stories are mysteries set in this period when murder was not a crime. She has taught writing from Kindergarten through University levels with an emphasis on bringing what is in the mind and heart out in words. Her Master of Arts in English Literature and time as a Graduate Fellow in Pacific Basin Studies – Political and Economic Assessment reflect her diverse background.

In the mid-1990s, Zara stopped reading self-help books. She posits that all change comes from internal motivation and believes we can train our brain to lead a positive, active life.
