Healthy Aging!

In many countries, such as the US and Australia, we have an ageing population – where the proportion of elderly people in the country is on the rise.

This is largely a result of the ‘baby boom’ after the second World War – the babies born during that time are now fast approaching/if not already reached, retirement age.

Traditionally the focus has been directed towards taking care of the elderly when they reach retirement, but now many organisations such as WHO are promoting fitness and healthy nutrition as a way of staying physically ‘young’ for those who have reached their golden years.

I know this blog has mainly focused on celebrating women, but i would like this opportunity to dedicate this post to our senior citizens, who have also traditionally experienced the throes of being unappreciated in a youth-dominated society.

May the times change! 🙂
