Beat Stress with Breaths

We are officially in the 2023 holiday season! Don’t let all of the hustle and bustle stress you out! I’ve put together a gift guide for you and yours… and the best part? Everything can be found on Amazon, making shopping a stress-free experience! I have been exploring breathwork, and after some practice, I am starting to believe that breathing is the key to good health. In her book, The Mind Body Stress Reset, Rebekkah LaDyne shares how to reset your nervous system and provides tools for calming stress in both your mind and body.

Memories in Motion

The holidays are right around the corner. Who is ready to get moving? Make memories with your family and friends by staying active this holiday season. Staying active doesn’t have to be complicated. If you aim to get in 10,00 steps per day, you can lower the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers. Walking and listening to Podcasts has become one of my favorite things. I made a list of three podcasts that go great with walking. Can you imagine taking a 15-year break from doing what you love? That’s exactly what Jane Fonda did. That break was just what she needed, because she came back even stronger with a passion for an active fulfilling third-age life!

Dance to the Bowling Alley

Are you ready to dance? 

Dancing is a great way to elevate your heart rate and make you smile. Everyday Health says it doesn’t matter how you choose to move as long as you raise your heart rate. So, put on your dancing shoes and head to our Facebook group to showcase your moves! Are you planning intergenerational get-togethers over the holidays? Bowling is great family fun. If you aren’t a pro, don’t worry! They even make it easy for all skill levels with bumpers and ramps.

Transform Aging and Find Your Purpose

Are you ready for a hard truth?

Nothing we do will slow, stop, or reverse our aging process.

We each grow older every day, and growing older is a gift. What better way to spend our third age than enjoying every moment we can? Thankfully, the movie industry has become hip with the changing trends and has released a few good Rom-Coms lately. Movies like “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” have added some extra fun to my life.

Have you been searching for a greater meaning, deeper relationships, and new experiences? Modern Elder Academy provides the tools to navigate the final stages of our lives. In this program, you can reimagine, reflect, recreate, and grow!

One of the founders of Modern Elder Academy, Jeff Hamaoui, knows that aging is not a barrier to success. Jeff believes we can achieve a better and longer health span by adding more emphasis on sustainable living, community, and physical health.

Age Joyously

The way we think about aging affects how well we age. Don’t get wrapped up in the fear that society wants you to have. In his book, Successful Aging, Daniel J. Levitin embraces the idea that we need to focus more on health span and less on life span

Everyone deserves to have healthy relationships, and finding new friends can feel difficult as we get older. Explore an online community, Amintro, where you’ll be guided through a step-by-step process to list your interests and set up your profile. Once you are ready, you can explore the online community and make long-term connections with like-minded locals. Think of a dating app, but for finding friends!

Fight Ageism Where it Starts!

Do you know what the last socially acceptable prejudice in our society is?

Would you be surprised if I told you the answer is ageism? I’m guessing you probably knew the answer before I told you. How we view ageism begins with our mindset, and it’s time to make a change. Ageism thrives in the workplace, so if you feel undervalued, threatened, and invisible, I want you to know that you are not alone. Gain your confidence in the workplace by reading Carl Wolfe’s book, How to Talk to Anyone at Work.

Your Third Age is Just the Beginning

Age can be your superpower! 

It’s never too late to dive into our creative dreams. In fact, success and innovation can happen at any age. These 50 over 50 women are all the proof you need to get the ball rolling yourself.

Has the stock market always felt like the “boys club” to you? Investing doesn’t have to be scary. Ellevest has investment counselors who are ready to help you and thousands of other women generate income fearlessly. And speaking of being fearless, let’s talk about one of my all-time favorite women, Judy Blume. Did you know that Judy Blume is one of the most banned authors? She has faced censorship and controversy throughout the years, still, Time Magazine has named her one of the top 100 most influential people in the world.

Let’s Change the Way We Perceive Aging

There is a shift coming! 

By 2030 older Americans will make up more than 20% of the population. 1 in every 5 residents will be of retirement age, so it’s time for us to learn how to age better. We can change ageism for good by shifting perspectives, but that change has to start with us. It’s time to become leaders, by taking the initiative and spending more time with people of all ages. Learning from each other can lead to a better understanding for all. Stepping outside your comfort zone won’t be easy, but looking and feeling your best will add the confidence you need to leap.
