Summary:

Social scientists try to specify the defining characteristics of each of the generations. But there isn’t a lot of information on how Millennials view aging and older people. If today’s guest is any indication, there is a lot to be hopeful for. Brett Roger Gebbie, a 32 year old millennial, is the host of a podcast titled “Inspect Your Elders”, where he chats with those having many more years of experience than he to find out the thoughts and events that have shaped their lives.
After listening to several of his episodes, Lee invites Brett to discuss his motivations and purpose for doing his podcast and uncovers a thinking that seems rather unique among millennials. Or perhaps we have misjudged what millennials are all about? Adjusting our view of millennials and their opinions will most certainly affect our relationships in the world. You be the judge as to whether Brett’s thinking is unique or typical of his generation.

But there is a new brand of humor emerging that could have a much more positive effect on how we feel about aging. Enjoy the laughs.

    • increased mental capacity, disease prevention, Improved healing, Improved quality of life, Increased balance, Added longevity, Better mood, Improved immune function, Improved bone density, Mental health benefits.

  • Four types of exercises:
    • Cardio, aka cardiovascular exercise, is anything that gets your heart rate up, makes you feel sweaty, and gets more oxygen pumping through your blood.
    • Strength training is any exercise that helps the different muscles in your body become stronger and more powerful.
    • Flexibility exercises are designed to increase your range of motion in your joints.
    • Balance exercises that strengthen the muscles that help keep you upright, including your legs and core.
  • Research is showing that it is especially important that older people engage in strength training. This is an essential part of any exercise routine older people.
  • Cardio should be done 3 to 4 times a week
  • Strength training should be done 2 to 3 times a week. (The audio says 4, but that is not physically practical for more older people.)

  • It is important that you learn about yourself and you grow in fitness

Cindy shares her experience and knowledge to educate us about the many aspects of co-housing that will most certainly appeal to a large portion of our older population.
