Do you want to Age Well?
About a week ago my daughter and I celebrated our birthday on the same day. She became 25 and I turned 65. Although the number seems rather large now I’ve reached it, I feel enormously grateful to have lived long enough to celebrate it!
Although the process of ageing is a natural part of life, it can be challenging can’t it? Ageing is a complex process involving a variety of factors. We all know that exercise, diet and lifestyle are important, but I also believe that our attitude towards the ageing process, plays a big part. The more we resist the passing of our youth, the more uncomfortable it will be.
How do you feel about getting older? Are you cool with it, or are you a bit ageist?
In the UK Ageism is rife. I’ve had people say to me, “You look great for your age” or “Haven’t you got an amazing body for your age”. I must admit, sometimes, I buy in to it, but when I can catch myself (or someone else) using expressions such as
‘well, you’re not getting any younger’ or
‘it’s a slippery slope from now on’,
I look for ways to reframe that ageist conversation, because let’s face it, it doesn’t make any of us feel good!
I believe that it’s really important to embrace life, with ALL it’s challenges. After all, it’s not the easy stuff that builds our resilience and character, it’s the stuff that’s difficult (emotionally and physically) that gives us an opportunity to grow and flourish.
So, are you going to waste time resisting the passing of time, or grab every single moment and celebrate being alive?
Wanting to both age well and be a Conscious Consumer, I buy from a BCorp brand called Arbonne. Using their results-driven, vegan skin care and nutrition, makes a huge difference to the way I look and feel and I’m often told I look 10 years younger than I am! Because of the impact these products have had on my body, mind, and skin, I now recommend them to others too.
