If you're like most women, you've come to dread getting older...
and it seems that the first "aging" milestone starts at 30. At 30, your life has just begun, and yet women are lead to believe that our biological clock is now ticking, or that gravity starts to have an effect on our bodies at "x" age. The truth is we've been "aging" ever since we got on this planet. We keep hearing that "studies show" our metabolism slows down, or that we can't learn a new language after 20. It's hard to know where we even got this information or who it was that made us believe these facts that don't have to be true. Some of these cultural memes and sterotypes have been around so long that we don't even know which came first, the belief or the proof.
As a Mother-Daughter team, we wanted to share an amazing perspective from another fantastic Mother-Daughter duo, Christiane and Kate Northrup. Dr. Christiane Northrup is one of our role models when it comes to women's health and we love her ability to break through stereotypes and beliefs we have as women when it comes to "getting older".
We wanted to share this video with you to start a conversation. The limiting beliefs we hold about what we're supposed to be like at "x" age and the thoughts we think around age can really be holding us back. I challenge you to think about yourself differently. What would happen if you forgot how old you were? Would you start windsurfing or change careers? How many beliefs do you hold that are related to age?
