Description

'Age Your Way' - This bi-weekly podcast is about healthy aging in body, mind and spirit. For 50+, baby boomers and seniors who don't fit into the current 'aging person' image, for men and women who are not satisfied with becoming invisible, for anyone who wants to enjoy vibrant later years.Hosted and produced by Debra Jones. Her mission is to change negative attitudes towards aging and reinstate the reverence it deserves. Our society tells us that aging is undesirable. Why? As soon as we're born, we're aging. At OWN THE GREY, we believe that our age should be worn as a medal of honour. As we get older, we gain the power of perspective and wisdom; an asset gained only by age. Let's change the conversation and set new, healthy, POSITIVE attitudes, and eliminate outdated stigmas. Listen to conversations, monologues, meditations, and tips in our weekly podcast to learn from men and women, 50, 60, 70 and 80, who have discovered ways to have a healthy life. We discuss aging, retirement, health and wellness in the senior years, alternative medicine, baby boomer generation issues.

Western society has it all wrong. Getting old isn't about fading away quietly and not disturbing anyone in the process. Instead, it's a time to celebrate life's MOST important stage - being an elder.
