IGA021- Millennials vs. Boomers – Bridging The Generation Gap

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.

Summary:

What do we learn from our humor of others? Can humor be used to promote age-related impressions, opinions and stereotypes among us? Lee explores such questions through a series of humorous stories, jokes and one-liners. He finds the bulk of the age-related humor focuses on our failing memories or our aging bodies. 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. But let’s start considering the direction our age-related humor is taking us.

Key Points Mentioned In This Episode:

  • Lee’s super hero fantasies
  • The benefits of physical activity include:
    • 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.
  • Getting older increases our need for rest between exercise sessions. Working out 6 or 7 days a week becomes too demanding since there isn’t enough time for rest. Rest is vital to recover from workouts properly.
  • We are all individuals and our exercise should be individualized. Our triggers and motivations are all slight different, and our motivations changes as we get older.
  • Fitness is not a way of life. It IS life. Our fitness determines how much of life we can take in. Our fitness gives us the endurance, strength, balance and flexibility we need to consume life.
  • In starting an exercise routine, it is best to start off very small (beneath your expectations) and slowly work up beyond this point. The foundation you will build by doing this will be appreciated as you improve.
  • 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.)
  • A bit of soreness is to be expected after strength training.
  • 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.

IGA012 – A Peek At Aging From the Generation-X Perspective

Summary:

Where do we learn how to age? Sounds like a strange question, but it is a valid one. We are all learning how to age whether we know it or not. Lee begins to explore this by reaching out to younger people to see how they feel about various aspects of aging. For this week's episode, Lee engages 40 year old Ed Lazzari to get a peek into how this age group views aging for both themselves and their parents. The conversation gave Lee a few eye-openers that he didn't expect. See what your reactions are.

IGA011 – Adjusting to Retirement by Learning to Really Work at Living

Summary:

Retirement is a strange beast and is different for different people. This episode exposes the thinking of two retired men to see how their thoughts about retirement have changed after being retired for a few years. Richard O'Shea shares his thoughts with Lee (the other retired guy) about what a successful retirement means and a few "secrets" about handling this phase of life. They touch such topics as retirement fears, the leisure time myth, the role of passion, and individual value systems.

"Retirement provides an opportunity to connect to a larger world, to find an inner self that couldn't get out before, and find an outlet for who you truly are."Lee Mowatt
