Banning "Anti-aging"

I noticed a trend last week of the term "anti-aging" being banned by Allure Magazine with AARP following their lead. I applaud this movement because it emphasizes a focus on wellness. Michelle Lee, Allure's editor, stated the following: "Growing older is a wonderful thing because it means that we get a chance, every day, to live a full, happy life.”

I am adopting this attitude towards my personal life and my professional life. I work mostly with older adults and want to continually promote everyone's value in the community no matter where someone is on the lifespan. It is important to me to help others live a "full, happy life."

Thank you Allure Magazine and AARP for discontinuing a negative term and encouraging a healthy individual perspective.
