Age into Action 101

In a nutshell, Age into Action is about taking steps to create your best life with the added benefit of creating positive changes in the world around you.

 

While the actions you take primarily help you achieve your goals, the secondary benefits of your actions fall under the umbrella of an easy-to-follow, eco-friendly lifestyle that propels you towards a healthier, happier life---with an added super-dose of feeling good for doing your part to make a positive difference.

 

We've designed this lifestyle to be easy. We all have enough to think about and living well shouldn't be an overwhelming chore. To make it even easier, we're firm believers in the 80/20 rule which states that as long as you do what you intend to do 80% of the time, you don't have to obsess about the other 20%. Listen, while we should always strive to do what's right, life can sometimes get in the way and things don't always go as planned.

 

We're here to support you and want to set

you up for success! 

There are five checkpoints along the road to the best you. Let's take a closer look at how we're going to approach each checkpoint and examples of how they're going to help you create and shape your amazing, new life.

 
Food
Food

Great food is the fuel for your new lifestyle. Eating well is an important part of not only your general health, but your food choices play an important part of eco-friendly living. We can help broaden your food knowledge or help you completely overhaul your current ways of choosing foods for optimum health. 

Primary Benefits for You
  • We'll help you choose healthier, higher quality foods raised without antibiotics or harmful chemicals.

  • We encourage creating meal plans which can lower your food costs by only buying what you need.

  • You'll consume less pesticides and other harmful chemicals which can build up in your body over time and cause health problems.

Secondary Sustainable/Eco-friendly Benefits
  • We recommend that you purchase food that's grown responsibly and fertilized without chemicals that can harm the environment.

  • We also recommend shopping at farmers markets where you can support local farmers and the local economy. Many times you can save money by buying directly from the growers/producers.

  • Less travel time from farm to table equals less emissions from shipping long distances.

  • Less food waste means less toxic emissions at landfills from decomposing food.

 
 
Play

Don't we mean exercise? Well, yes and no. At some point people forgot how to play and it became a chore to stay fit. The exercise routine you choose should be fun and exciting for you. Why do something you don't like as a way to stay healthy? From losing weight to gaining muscle to general fitness, we'll cover topics beneficial for your goals.  

Primary Benefits for You
  • You may experience better physical health such as lower blood pressure, steady blood sugar levels, and improve other health markers. 

  • Depending on your fitness routine, you may increase muscle mass and/or accelerate fat loss. 

  • Not only does exercise help keep you in good health physically, it provides a much needed mental boost as it can also reduce stress by releasing endorphins and help balance your hectic life while keeping you feeling good and energetic.

  • A fit and flexible body allows you to maintain your independence longer as you get older.

Secondary Sustainable/Eco-friendly Benefits
  • What tends to be healthy for us tends to be healthy for our environment.

  • Fitness can show us how the power of positive habits can empower us for a sustainable future.

  • An exercise routine can help prevent diseases and health problems as you go through life, doing your part to keep the population healthy and sustainable as a whole.

  • Staying healthy allows you to keep contributing your talents and energy in your community and in the workforce.

 
Life

We focus on topics such as:

  • shopping guides

  • general lifestyle tips

  • news that impacts your life

  • career advice

  • pop culture

  • trends

  • interviews

....and more to keep you informed.

Primary Benefits for You
  • We'll help you make informed shopping decisions. We'll help sort out the junk and save you a bit of cash.

  • Inspiring interviews with people making a positive difference in their own lives and in their communities.

  • Stay up-to-date on the latest trends in living well.

  • Find out which products to avoid due to negative effects on your health.

  • Stay informed of the latest technology that can have a positive impact on your life.

  • We'll help you relax and unwind with some social media and blog posts meant to be on the lighter side. We can't be all business all the time. You shouldn't either.

Secondary Sustainable/Eco-friendly Benefits
  • Support sustainable-minded companies with eco-friendly policies.

  • Support sustainable technologies by buying multi-use or renewable energy items.

  • Learn how to reduce your carbon footprint.

  • Be inspired to make changes in your own life or community by seeing others in action.

Health

While staying healthy is a function of many parts of your lifestyle, including our other checkpoints, we cover specific topics that affect your health such as the impact of exercise on health, supplement news, weight loss strategies, and more. We stay on top of the latest research and pass the information on to you. 

Primary Benefits for You
  • Stay up-to-date on the latest health news that affects your quality of life.

Secondary Sustainable/Eco-friendly Benefits
  • Keeping yourself in good health affects the overall welfare of our communities. A society with large populations of unhealthy people isn't very sustainable in the long term. A healthy population can decrease stress on healthcare systems, decrease depression and other problems among individuals, and keep people in the workforce labor pool for longer periods of time.

 
 

Just like food is fuel for your body, we cover what is needed for mental fuel. We've only got so much mental energy each day and we focus on how to balance the demands of life while staying sane in our fast-paced world. Staying positive, being aware of the world around you, and paying attention to the thoughts within you are the key to creating a balanced life. 

Mindfulness
Primary Benefits for You
  • In today's hectic world, it's more important than ever to stay centered and balanced.

  • Live with an awareness of the world around you without the usual preoccupations cluttering up your mind.

  • Increase your enjoyment of life and become fully engaged in your activities.

  • By focusing on the present, you're less likely to get caught up in anxiety over the future and regrets about the past. 

Secondary Sustainable/Eco-friendly Benefits
  • Sustainable lifestyle changes come from increased positive feelings and a deep connection to the natural world. 

  • Being mindful allows people to stop automatic thoughts such as throwing away certain items instead of recycling or can positively affect behaviors such remembering to bring a reusable grocery bag to the store. 

  • Mindfulness can also show us how our daily decisions and actions affect our immediate communities and our overall environment both in the present and future.
