Women like us are showing the world that we are beautiful at every age and every stage of life.
As we move into the Pro-age Revolution’s 10th year, we want to ensure this movement keeps growing—so we can continue to empower pro-age women for generations to come.
We want women to look and feel beautiful just as they are… and love their lives a little more with each passing year. This is the exact opposite of the “anti-aging” messages we hear every day.
We want to encourage all women to let go of anti-aging stereotypes and enjoy every decade of their lives. That’s a major culture shift—and a significant undertaking.
We can’t do it alone.
We need your help to keep the momentum going.
Through our own experiences, hearing your stories and seeing your living example, we’ve gathered a few ways to help build momentum in the Pro-age Revolution.
Whether you’re new to the Pro-age Revolution or just looking for new ways to spread the pro-age message, here are a few ideas…
1. Stay positive.
Positive messages and people move us so much more than negative ones.
We’re naturally drawn to positive and uplifting messages and people. They give us energy and hope. That’s why we’re PRO-age.
When you’re confronted with ageism, respond with your own pro-age insight. Your lived experience will be far more impactful than any negative stereotypes could ever be.
Being a positive voice in the movement helps your voice be heard and also attracts others who are positive and uplifting.
2. Challenge implicit biases.
When you look in the mirror, do you automatically focus on your less-than-favorite features? For example, do you stress about fine lines before you notice your beautiful eyes? Automatic responses like these often spring from implicit biases.
These under-the-radar beliefs can come from early or persistent messages we receive about aging. You might even have implicit biases that directly contradict your conscious thoughts and beliefs.
Try to counter implicit biases whenever possible. If you notice patterns in when or how your biases appear, plan ahead to thwart them.
For example, if you notice that negative thoughts slip in most often in front of the mirror, try posting pro-age affirmations on your bathroom mirror. Or verbally appreciate your skin, hair, eyes, face and other favorite features daily.
Practices like these can help transform automatic responses to positive, pro-age messages.
3. Talk with people of all ages.
One way to disrupt negative stereotypes around aging is to be a shining example of pro-age vibrance for others.
Seek out opportunities to talk with or be around people of all ages, either in person or virtually. Your example may influence family, friends and even new people you meet for years to come.
Or, look for the beauty in those who are further along in their journey and consider how life will bring you MORE as you age.
