AARP The Magazine’s Bonus Digital Issue: Martha Stewart, Still Relentless at 82, Bob Costas on Baseball Legend Dusty Baker, and How to Make Your Retirement Money Last

WASHINGTONAARP The Magazine (ATM) announces its first-ever bonus digital issue that explores how aging in America is changing from all angles, be it medical, financial, cultural and even psychological. The special issue, which features some 14 feature stories, was created to commemorate AARP’s 65th anniversary since its founding in 1958.

This bonus ATM gives readers insight into the lives of celebrities 50-plus who exemplify longevity and reflect on aging – such as cover star Martha Stewart. In an exclusive first-person story, the businesswoman, writer and TV personality says she keeps busy every day by constantly trying new things and challenging herself. From recently gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated to maintaining her friendship with Snoop Dogg, to traveling with her grandchildren, she refuses to live a life of regrets and “what ifs.”

From ADUs to multiuse developments, this issue details the best of these emerging home options.

This issue offers a deep look into the brains of “super agers” – people in their 80s and 90s who show the mental acuity of someone many decades younger – and how science is beginning to understand both their unique physiology and also the lifestyle traits that separate them from others​.

Fashion trends come and go, but style is both timeless and personal. To help readers better shape their personal style, AARP asked a top style guru to point out the unique style characteristics of many iconic women, including Lauren Hutton, Viola Davis, Imam, Diane Keaton and Naomi Campbell.
