I was born in 1978 on the cusp of the Millennial Generation. Since Millennials are considered to be those born from 1980 to the early 2000s, I’m technically not one of them. To be honest, I feel more of a connection with Generation X anyway. Having come of age in the grunge era, I’m more Reality Bites than reality television. But being so close to these Millennials (and having two siblings, who are technically Millennials), I’m fascinated by this bunch. If I’m being perfectly honest, I might even resent them a bit for their rosy idealism, tech savviness, and youthful approach (something that has annoyed every older generation from the beginning of time). Still, I’m always looking for ways to better understand – and connect – with them. After all, they are our future, and I have faith they’ll build a brighter tomorrow. Get on that you guys!
In the meantime, like everyone on the outside, I’m searching to comprehend what’s going on in their heads. Thanks to Giftagram, which allows you to send gifts in seconds using only your iPhone or Android, we have this wealth of information about Millennial mammas. The most hilarious and perhaps enlightening part of the infographic, for me at least, is the distinction between how Millennials and Boomers/Gen Xers define good health. Check it out in the graphic above. By the way, I’m well aware that I aged myself – and defined which generation I’m in – with the 411 headline, so need to write in. LOL! See, I can get my Millennial groove on, too.
