If you remember, we interviewed my centenarian grandmother, or Bubbie, 8 years ago about her life. Sadly, we lost her in living form last week. She made it as a centenarian to 101-Ish, which was quite an accomplishment. She still had such a sharp mind and was completely independent. Bubbie never wanted to be a burden to anyone. She even walked to the mall to buy yogurt on Thursday almost 12 hours before her last breath.
So…101-ISH…what’s that about? She had 3 birthdays. She was never sure the exact date that she was born, all she knew is that she was born somewhere between Passover and Shavuot (birthday 1). December 22 is the date that her father finally made it into the city to register her. This is the birthday that we celebrate. And when she arrived in Canada, the government gave her the birthday of February 2. So according to her first two birthdays she’s 101 according to what the family celebrates she is 101-ish. Or if you really like math she’s 302.
She was born in Poland in 1922, came to Canada by boat in 1935 and lost her husband 1975 and has been on her own, building an empire without any boyfriend or new husband since then.
We’d like to commemorate her by sharing 15 lessons I learned from her that although may not seem directly about health, can be and are definitely conducive to a better quality of life.
In this episode we discuss:
- Centenarian lessons for a strong body
- Centenarian lessons for a positive mind
- Lessons for a sharp mind
- Centenarian lessons for a wealthy life
- Centenarian lessons for fashion
- Lessons for youthful skin
- Centenarian lessons for a good long life
