Intentional Well-Being Podcast: The Fear of Aging
Today we are talking about aging. Yep, you know, that point where you start feeling like you are losing momentum. When your energy level isn’t what it used to be. When the reflection in the mirror changes.
What are you thoughts on aging? Kind of a big question, isn’t it? Because most of the time we are surrounded by fear of aging. Just taker a closer look around you. Skin care products are always pushing ways for us to have ‘younger looking skin.’ Health experts are always pushing ways to ‘live longer.’ And then we are told to stop or refrain from doing certain activities at older ages because it is ‘unsafe.’ Society wants us to look young and then demands we stay inside when we become ‘too old’ for the rest of the world.
Well, I’m here with movement expert and anti-agism advocate David Wilson to tell you that, everything you know about aging is wrong. That’s right! You read that right.
There’s a secret to longevity that our western cultures aren’t talking about. It’s more than healthy diet and vitamins. The secret is right in front of us. It surrounds us on a regular basis. We just have to connect to it and allow it is show itself.
Let’s rewire what you think about aging and love the vessel you were chosen to walk this earth in. You can live the most beautiful long life.
Because truth be told, until you can’t, you most certainly CAN.
Dive into today’s episode of The Intentional Well-Being Podcast
David Wilson is a professional educator and fitness trainer, David believes that combining curiosity, playfulness, compassion, and self awareness anyone can practice movement in ways that will interest them, support them, and evolve them in their lives and their bodies. As an anti-agism advocate, he is deeply interested in how attitudes towards aging influence how we age.
Although I am a personal trainer and teacher of movement, I believe that fitness is too important to be left solely in the hands of health & fitness professionals. I’m deeply interested in helping people to find ways to participate in the creation of their own unique fitness.
I’m a teacher, not a lifelong gym rat. Not a retired athlete. Not an ex-bodybuilder.
(And I love ice cream. And pizza. And dogs.)
