MODERN ELDERS are not like the former elders in that we have zest for life, and passion for adventure and exploration. We are not content to spend all our days in a rocking chair on the porch. We are active and social. We don’t feel old (although our bodies sometimes do.) We have a youthful mindset, believe that the best is yet to come, and we want to get the most out of life. This bi-weekly podcast is about growing older with a healthy body, mind and spirit - for 50+, baby boomers and seniors. Award-winning holistic health professional, Debra Jones' mission is to change negative attitudes towards aging and reinstate the reverence it deserves. Our society tells us that aging is undesirable. Why? As soon as we're born, we're aging. At OWN THE GREY, we believe that our age should be worn as a medal of honour. As we get older, we gain the power of perspective and WISDOM; an asset gained only by age. Let's change the conversation and set new, healthy, POSITIVE attitudes, and eliminate outdated stigmas. At OWN THE GREY, we uncover the hidden wisdom from the MODERN ELDERS of society so that ALL ages can be inspired by, and benefit from their stories.

If you've always delegated the finances to your partner, consider taking control of your destiny.

    The science behind negative self-talk and how to change it. We all have that inner voice whose words can raise you up, but can just as easily cut you down. Many people are conscious of their inner voice as it provides a running commentary on their lives throughout each day. Our self-talk can be cheerful and supportive, OR it can be negative and self-defeating.
