the length of time that a person has lived or a thing has existed.
Aging is something that comes. Something that is unstoppable. You cannot decide whether to age or not. You can however decide how you approach aging.
How do you… want to age?
Ok so we know things are going to start to slow down, with age comes the general reversal of youth to our bodies. We know our bodies are not going to react or act the same way as when we were young but that doesn’t have to stop us! Take Masako Wakamiya for example, who in her 80s not only taught herself how to program but is now designing apps.
Hollywood is filled with individuals that are constantly put under the microscope for their outside appearances. As this generation of actors enter their later years, are we going to see a shift in attitudes towards aging? Even funny man Steve Carell is not immune to the pull of public acceptance as his locks turn grey.
Society seems to be playing a game of tug of war. The global Anti-Aging Market was worth $250 billion in 2016 yet Pinterest is loaded with Susan Sarandon's inspirational quote "I look forward to being older, when what you look like becomes less and less an issued and what you are is the point".
So how do you…want to age?
