Ageism and It's Impact on Wellness
In this week's episode of Getting Healthy Without Rules, we unpack the pervasive issue of ageism and its impact on wellness. My special guest, Caryl Mix, a life and business growth strategist, joins the conversation. Together, we explore various aspects of ageism, including its definition, who is affected, and how it affects mental, physical, and emotional health.
We challenge common misconceptions about aging and delve into the societal obsession with appearance and beauty standards. The discussion deepens as we talk about the Sports Illustrated cover featuring Martha Stewart, which has sparked conversation and controversy about unrealistic beauty expectations for older women. We also explore ways to be comfortable and confident in all of our perfectly imperfect bodies as we age and address mindset traps and cultural norms related to aging.
