Healthy Ageing

Freshly made Soup! There is nothing better than a bowl of fresh hot soup on a cold Alberta winter day! Our mother used to make a fresh pot of soup for her family every single day. Chicken, barley, vegetable, leek, tripe, pea, pickle soup, borsch, to name a few. We never knew what it would be, but it was always there waiting for us.

The soup was not only very good and tasty, but healthy! Our Mamusia (mother) was, and still is a firm believer in the value of soup. She and her mother, our Babcia (grandmother), survived the Second World War in Poland. During the war they survived mostly on potatoes, tomatoes, and on rare occasions, horse meat. They also experienced hunger.  Our Babcia traded her weekly allotment of butter, which was the length of one’s pinky finger, for a bottle of oil, as it would last longer than a tiny piece of butter. Their life experiences made them realize the value of food, and made them understand how precious and sacred food was, but also what an extraordinary gift of nature food is.

Our mother, who is 92 years of age this year, still makes soup.  Her base for a good broth is chicken thighs, turkey neck and oxtail. She still chops up her vegetables finely, throws in her beloved bayleaf and adds her secret ingredient, “love”.  She eats her soup twice a day, rarely catches a cold, and her skin looks absolutely fabulous!

What is Healthy Ageing?

Aging is a lifetime process. We now live longer than previous generations. Although longevity may be a goal in itself, the quality of life as we age may be just as, or even more important, then the number of years living. There is general acceptance that Healthy Ageing is focused on improving and preserving physical, social and mental wellness, independence, and maintaining a quality of life.

A healthy lifestyle can make a difference in how you feel and what you can do especially as you age. It’s never too late to reap the benefits by living a healthy lifestyle through nutrition, active living and learning something new.

Why is Healthy Ageing Important?

Investing time, energy and attention into good health, including whole nutrition, exercise, sleep, reducing stress and keeping your mind active can contribute to overall wellness.

Physical activity is important to healthy ageing. Balance exercises help prevent falls, strength exercises build muscles and reduce the risk of bone loss.

Healthy eating is important at any age, but becomes even more so as we reach midlife and beyond. Eating healthy can help improve mental acuteness, boost your energy levels, and increase your resistance to illness.

Continue to feel vital, alive, vibrant, joyful and feel the wonders of life. It’s never too late to start caring for your health.
