Getting Older: Lies, Myths and Misconceptions

Does the way that Hollywood and Netflix represent the aging process match with reality? Hardly! Like any group of people, older adults are stereotyped and exaggerated in the media. But, while it is politically incorrect to stereotype other groups of people… it seems to be ok to make older adults a punch line.

So, in this morning’s show, I want to call out a few of the myths, misconceptions and outright lies that people believe about older adults. More importantly, I want to remind you that your destiny is your own. You can do whatever you want to do in the magical years that you have left on this planet. So, seize the moment.

Achieve healthy aging and even add years to your life! Get moving again with our gentle yoga video series.
