What do you consider old? 40? 60? 100? Depending on your age, the answer probably varies.
Dr. Phil is joined by Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO of AARP and best-selling author of Disrupt Aging, to discuss age bias.
“Ageism is ageless and that you can be old at 35 or young at 70, it just depends on the mindset that you have,” Jo Ann tells Dr. Phil.
“Why is it important to challenge these outdated beliefs about aging?” Dr. Phil asks.
“Our research tells us that a 10-year-old born today in the U.S. has a 50 percent chance of living to be 104, and so we’re going to have to recreate a 100-year life and think about the implications of that on education, on work, on relationships, on savings for retirement, on your whole health, wealth, self spectrum,” Jo Ann explains. “It’s not just about tacking 15 or 20 years onto the end of your life.”
