Sally Hewitt, from Aging Gratefully, joined Mike for Mental Health Week.
She advised us not to buy into all the ageist attitudes. The whole idea of aging being negative is crazy! We’re all going to age, it’s part of journey of life. We need to remember that growing old is a privilege that denies some.
It’s important to differentiate between aging and deterioration. You don’t automatically deteriorate because you get older. Longitudinal Studies show the way we look after ourselves and the way we live in our midlife (40’s, 50’s, 60’s) will set us up to how our 70’s and beyond could be.
“We were created to be of strong mind and courage and not to have a mindset of fear.”
