Boomer definitions

Posted by Leona Bergstrom

Again, from my newly mined new book Generation Ageless by J. Walker Smith and Ann Clurman. Boomers define things differently today than they did in times past. Here’s an example of Boomer definitions:



Growing old

Slowing down

Keeping pace

Staying active

Walking, shopping, visiting

Running, skiing, traveling

A snooze

An afternoon nap

An Ambien

An adventure

Trying a new restaurant

Trying a new country

The authority



Favorite tunes



Being expressive

Tie dye

A Tattoo

Having fun

Supper clubs, bridge

Girls night out; Texas hold’em

Enjoying a feast

A nice steak

Free range organic chicken

Job success

Corner office

Home office

Mental Health

est, TM, Synanon

Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac

The environment

Ozone hole

Melting Poles
