This idea isn’t exactly news to us. We know that getting older doesn’t have to mean slowing down like society might want us to believe. This is the perfect time in our lives to knock down those aging stereotypes and live life to the fullest!
Many of us prepare for a challenging event by power posing for two minutes. We stand with hands on hips, feet apart, chin lifted like Wonder Woman, or with our arms in the air in the “victory” pose.
We do this because we were told our body chemistry would temporarily change, increasing testosterone and reducing cortisol, the stress hormone. Only it’s not true.

At age 88, Baddie Winkle is fashionably reminding all of us that this is not true! By refusing to accept invisibility, Winkle has become an inspiration for women of all ages.
