It's hard to plan ahead, but having those close to you remind you of its importance could be a game changer.
Instead of having parents nag you about your posture, what if we embraced intergeneraitonal family health discussions with a holiday? What if there was one day a year where people discussed how their future health will be affected by current decisions or your elders share what they wish they had done in a ritualistic fashion to build empathy for you.
To start this day one could reach out to large health organizations to do promotion and agree to push it forward. To provide some structure, as
suggests, one could create a series of potential conversations or a toolkit to support whoever initiates this exercise.
Once a large organization agreed to discuss it, additional press / attention could be generated by partnerships with companies like Hallmark who could make some extra money helping promote it with cards. Or with companies like Etsy that have holiday / seasonal promotions could also help.
Thanks for the great build
After some initial success could this discussion be incorporated into other holidays or family trips as
suggests? Finally, could there be a website to share these conversations to make it more viral as
