Aging on a global scale.

 Good Morning,

I hope that you are staying dry on this rainy morning here in Toronto.  I had the pleasure of hearing Dr Alex Kalache from the World Health Organization speak last night at the Sheridan Elder Research Centre's 10th anniversary celebration in Oakville.  His talk was about the impact of an aging population on world health and it was amazing.

One of the most important things that Dr Kalache talked about was the impact that each person can have to stay healthy and strong as they age and how different aging is for the boomer generation from their parents and grandparents.  

The biggest risks to staying healthy are :

  1. Inactivity
  2. Drinking excessively
  3. Poor Nutrition
  4. Lack of engagement with society
  5. Being pessimistic  

Caring for ourselves and staying enthusiastic and engaged with our society and communities is the best way to live long, healthy lives.  

I would like to thank Pat Spadafora and her team at the Sheridan Elder Research Centre for brining Dr Kalache to speak and for their work to enrich the lives of older adults in Canada.

So even though we have rain this weekend instead of being disappointed, I will take it as an opportunity to snuggle in at home with my family after a busy first week back and school for the kids and feel blessed.

If you would like to know more about the talk or are interested in learning about how Vintage Fitness energizes the lives of people over 50 with exercise drop me a note
