Did you know September is Healthy Aging Month? Yep, all month long. And since we are all about healthy aging here at Fountain Of 30, we thought it was only appropriate we celebrate with you all month.
Health Aging Month was started to focus national attention on the positive aspects of growing older. If you think it’s too late to “re-invent” yourself, it’s not. According to Carolyn Worthington, editor-in-chief of Healthy Aging Magazine and the creator of Healthy Aging Month, it’s never too late to find a new career, a new sport, passion or hobby. And I could not agree more!
The numbers of people over 45 is growing every year. While the attention used to be on baby boomers, Gen X-ers are elbowing them out. My goal is to encourage you to stay active and vibrant as long as possible…or as I like to say #growingyounger. There are over 76 million baby boomers today and the first of the 82.1 million generation x-ers turned over 50 in 2015. So you are far from alone, even if it often feels like you are.
How To Celebrate Healthy Aging Month
Take this month to think about taking stock of where you have been and where you would like to go. What would you do if money were no object? Do it anyway (maybe for less money or just do an aspect of it). Or start that business you always wanted to start. Or test your physical strength. Just do it now! Why not think about the positive aspects of aging rather than focusing on the stereotypes and the negative aspects?
Rejuvenate and get going on positive measures that can impact the areas of physical, social, financial and mental wellness. And to that end, we’d like to help. To celebrate Healthy Aging Month, we have a whole month of fun giveaways planned. But here’s the catch… (There’s always one, isn’t there?) You have to be on Instagram to enter. Simply follow @FountainOf30 on the gram and leave a comment to the giveaways you would like to enter. We will pick a winner for each and notify you via DM if you win!
