September is Healthy Aging Month.
It’s September and that means Healthy Aging Month has begun! We want to celebrate this special month by reminding you that it’s never too late to reinvent yourself, start over, and take control of your health.
Here at Primal Harvest, all of our products are designed to help support the natural aging process and keep you feeling fit and healthy, from nutrient-packed greens formulas to skin-boosting collagen peptides.
We live in a culture that is completely obsessed with youth... Why is it that we’re constantly being told we should look and feel younger? And sadly, women over 55 face even more unfair stereotypes all over the world.
Granted, there are many great things about being young. For one, the lack of bodily aches and pains... But why don't we ever talk about the many equally awesome aspects of being older? It is a gift denied to many, after all!
There’s so much value and joy in the natural aging process that our culture often taints with this unnecessary pressure to remain eternally youthful.
We're sold every type of anti-aging beauty product to keep our skin looking young and are made to feel insecure, as if there's something wrong with the natural signs of aging.
Whatever the cause of this societal love affair with youth, it's hard not to buy into the pressure sometimes.
That's why we wanted to take a moment today to remind you that aging is, well... actually pretty awesome! Check out this blog post to discover 6 Awesome Advantages of Getting Older.
Luckily, people all over the world are starting to catch on! For example, the #GreyHairRevolution is growing stronger by the day on Instagram, as well as many other popular trending hashtags.
So don’t lose hope or give into negativity… It's actually pretty simple nowadays to be a part of changing negative age stereotypes. YOU can be the living example of how wrong these limiting beliefs are when it comes to healthy aging!
At the end of the day, age is just a number and you are only as old as you feel.
With the right tools, it’s possible to embrace this new "Age Positive" movement and set a powerful example for future generations by proving that being older can be pretty fabulous after all.
Here are 5 easy ways you can
celebrate Healthy Aging Month
1) GET SOCIAL
Follow some of the awesome #AgePositive leaders on social media and support their mission by reading, commenting, and sharing their online content. You can also use the popular healthy aging hashtags in some of your own social media posts. Here are just a few hashtag ideas that will help connect healthy aging communities across the world: #HealthyAgingMonth, #GreyHairRevolution, #GrowingOldWithGrace, #WomenofSteel, and #AgePositive.
2) SHARE & SUPPORT
As the world continues to become more and more digitally minded, we have more power than ever at the tip of our fingers. If you feel strongly about the “age positive” movement and want to support it, one of the best ways to do so is by content sharing. When you read and share articles that support healthy aging, it gives a greater voice and draws more attention to the cause in a positive way.
3) VOTE FOR AGE POSITIVE LEADERS
Support leaders and officials who take a stand against negative age stereotypes and who feel strongly against age discrimination. This way, laws and policies to protect aging citizens remain a top priority, even amongst the highest officials!
4) REVAMP YOUR WELLNESS ROUTINE
Embracing your age should never mean throwing healthy lifestyle habits by the wayside. The best way to extend your lifespan and enjoy as many healthy years as possible is with long-term positive habits that support your vitality holistically.
This can be through regular exercise (even just walking!), drinking plenty of water, eating nutritious foods, limiting alcohol, managing stress, sleeping well, and adding the right high-quality supplements to your daily routine. These healthy habits embody what healthy aging is truly all about!
5) BE YOUR OWN INSPIRATION
There’s no reason why you can’t be your own inspiration and lead the movement yourself in your day to day life! Try embracing this stage of your life by speaking up for your beliefs, writing an article, sharing an #AgePositive photo, wearing whatever you want, and reminding yourself and others daily why age is just a number.
However you decide to celebrate Healthy Aging Month this September, we’re here to support you and remind you that aging is a beautiful gift we should embrace with pride!
Wherever you are along your healthy aging journey, it’s never too late to take control of your health and live your best life.
IT'S ABOUT YOU. IT'S ABOUT YOUR HEALTH. IT'S ABOUT RECONNECTING.
