Why do so many of us feel like we lose value as we age? Why do we collectively spend $250 billion a year on anti-aging products and $18 billion plus on hair dye. Why is age discrimination rampant in workplaces?

Do you cringe when you think about getting older?

A few weeks ago, I saw Ashton Applewhite, author of “This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism” speak at the Bioneers Conference.

Applewhite urges people to banish myths about aging and stop tying our self-esteem to looking or feeling young.

Old age is going to be better than you think, Applewhite insists. Your chances of ending up with dementia or in a nursing home are far smaller than you think. Plus, if you’re like most people, you’ll be happier when you’re older.

Check out my blog today to read Applewhite’s inspiring statistics about getting older, as well as some of my other key insights from the Bioneers conference.

Never heard of Bioneers? It’s a summit in Marin County that brings together leaders from the social justice movement, environmental movement, and indigenous communities to talk about solutions.

This conference was a game changer for me. I think you’ll be inspired too.
