One of the biggest threats to quality of life for people over 50 is osteoporosis, a condition defined by reduced bone density that makes bones more brittle and leads to frequent fractures, often from relatively minor falls or even everyday activities. The problem is related to ageing, but affects women disproportionately, and as such is a major area of concern in women’s health.


2020 is not only a new year, but a whole new decade. If you’re a smoker, it’s very possible that this is the year that you’re finally going to quit smoking for good. Hey, why not? 2020 is a nice round number, and there’s no better time than now to make a fresh start, start making healthier choices, and start feeling better about yourself.


Now that the gifts have been opened and put away, the glow of holiday lights has dimmed, it’s time to get back to reality. While some revel in the holiday hustle and bustle being over, it can spell t-r-o-u-b-l-e for some – also known as a “happiness hangover” – especially if the groundhog predicts another six weeks of winter next month.


We’ve all been there. We plan an event, be it a wedding, a night out, a party or a family trip. We look forward to it for days, for weeks, sometimes for months, and the second it’s over (or maybe the next day), we find ourselves overwhelmed with feelings of sadness and dread.


We like to think of the holidays as a time of year when we all take time out from our busy schedules to recharge our batteries, spend time with friends and family, and reflect on the year that’s been. Although Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day are statutory holidays, and many workplaces may shut down for several weeks in observance of them, not everyone gets that time off. Some, in fact, work right through the holiday season.
