Crushing Age Stereotypes at 59 with Mimi Ison
Manage episode 355988275 series 3447420
This time Rachel talks with Mimi Ison about midlife, changes and crushing stereotypes.
Mimi is your new pro-aging friend!
Originally a Northern Cali girl, she has been living in LA for over 2 decades.
In her mid-50s she was trying to figure out how to do this getting older thing when your body gets as stiff as your fave hardcover book, parents get sick and die, and ageism magnifies all the so-called horrors of this natural part of life.
She had let her health flounder, was feeling adrift about my future, and anxious about my time left on earth. Can you relate?
As she was searching for help with aging, the messaging she found was either unrealistic:
“50 is the new 30!”
“Age is just a number!”
So she started Hey Middle Age, to explore comfy and uncomfy midlife stuff, and along the way added a mission to upend ageist stereotypes that harm everyone.
