Baby boomers are the generation that is redefining what it means to be “old.”
Never before have we seen so many vivacious people staying active well into their 70’s, 80’s, and beyond. Check out, for example, the article that shows this 90-year-old grandma who rocks a bikini on vacation simply because she can. She’s still got it going on!
As a social experiment, AARP brought in a group of Millennials and asked them to define old. We’re assuming they were actors who were brought in for an audition. What they didn’t know was that they were about to become a part of a neat test.
After they clearly displayed their outrageous, perceived images of aging, these Millennials were introduced to some awesome golden oldies.
And they only get better with age!
The “kids” quickly got a well-earned lesson in humility, especially when a few of them couldn’t keep up with their aged counterparts. After the experiment was conducted, ALL the participants said they had some serious misconceptions about what it means to age and they agree that youth doesn’t just belong to the young
This video is awesome and it really made me rethink my own misconceptions of youth and aging.
If you are excited to take life by storm well into your triple digits, then please SHARE with friends and family to remind them that age is just a number and youth does not belong to the young!
