The general assumptions about AGING is yet another social construct to challenge.
I’m not going to deny the gradual yet obvious symptoms of aging.
But there’s plenty of research to prove that your mindset about aging can noticeably add or subtract years to how you look and feel.
The common expectations and general beliefs about aging influence our physical and mental health. As soon as we see the semblance of some signature signs of aging, “it’s all downhill from here.” Right?
What about when the oldest person in the room has more energy than some teenagers I know, or does yoga better than the majority of regulars at my yoga class, and looks considerably younger than they “should” without any cosmetic enhancements?
This is largely because they refused to let their age sabotage their mindset.
And neither should you.
Be only as old as you feel.
