Actress and New York Times best-selling author Marilu Henner shared healthy living tips with older adults and caregivers at the County’s 2019 Vital Aging event Wednesday.

Henner, who also appeared recently on Dancing with the Stars, had the 1,700 attendees at San Diego Convention Center (and another 500-plus watching via simulcast at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido) laughing at her stories of growing up with total memory recall and funny behind-the-scenes stories from her acting career on the sitcom Taxi and on Broadway.

Among her tips for living longer and healthier lives, Henner said “motion is the lotion,” and you need to keep yourself moving. She also encouraged people to do something every day to that makes themselves feel better.
