Years tend to change public opinion and people's attitudes towards certain vital aspects. Today, many women are flourishing at the age that was called senior just a few decades ago, with some of them looking no worse than the 20-year-olds. So, why are they, but not the 30-year-olds, now considered “an ageless generation?”

Middle-aged (30-40) period used to be considered a landmark in the life of many women. Few people remember it began just shortly after 30. By that time, many women were already married, some – already divorced, but all of them lived in captivity of everyday difficulties. What has changed? The answer is simple: our self-perception and the world around us.

The “doomed 30s” had a significant imprint on the way of thinking, appearance, and freedom of choice. They took care of their children and husbands, believing they had reached the peak of their expectations. They didn’t have time for themselves, and they had to live under the strict guidance of the older generation, in captivity of imposed and unchanged stereotypes.

Today, the situation has changed. First of all, they make many decisions themselves. They like to dress stylishly, use high-quality cosmetics, and resort to cosmetologists. They decide how to look, apply makeup, what to get involved in, and be guided by while raising children. They have more opportunities to monitor their health, eat healthy, and enjoy themselves.

Previously, a woman became a grandmother with the birth of her first grandson, or simply due to the age. Today, some give birth to firstborns when they are over 30, others “receive” kids from their adult children to look after. But they may be just shorty over 40 and not more than 50. Such modern granny look like Jackie Kennedy against the background of Nina Khrushchova. What are their secrets?

They have no illusions about their age, but they are simply not ready to live like their own mothers and grandmothers. These women are fashionable. Their hobbies include popular TV shows, active sports, new knowledge and skills, traveling, etc. They are not so interested in housework, as it was typical for middle-aged people. Moreover, due to a change in lifestyle and mindset, they don’t feel a part of this category. Such women love their families, but remain socially active: they see their friends, learn new things, and communicate with interesting people.
