Happily ageing at 90

For Mary Philip, 90-year-old from Bangalore the day begins at 4 am, when she wakes up, and sets out for an early morning walk at 5 am. She walks for an hour covering the 4 km stretch in Koramangala, Hosur road and returns at 6 am. If she walks fast, she covers the distance in 50 minutes, which she has measured multiple times. Daily walking the secret recipe of Philip’s healthy ageing. Speaking to Happiest Health, the nonagenarian recalled her everyday morning walk. “I begin my day with hot water and filter coffee. I walk for an hour. I walk alone. I just focus on the white lines on the side of the road while walking,” says Philip, who started walking in the mornings in 2008. She also used to workout with the gym equipment installed in a Koramangala park closer to her house, which she had to stop during the pandemic. She actively played Badminton with her friends from 1992 to 2008. “Over the years, some of them passed away, and some were unable to play like before. That’s when I started walking in the mornings,” says Philip.
