100-year-old sisters shared the secret of a long life and a sharp mind

They named work as one of the items. Swidler was an actress in amateur theater and even at retirement age remained active participating in charity events by her synagogue and other Jewish organizations. Hoads was a housewife while her children were growing up, but at the age of 50 she began working as an assistant teacher and paramedic. She regrets for not being able to get education and become a teacher or a journalist.

Both believe that family and a happy marriage prolong life and give strength. “It is wonderful to love and be loved,” Swidler says. Hodes fondly remembers her late husband, with whom she had a wonderful relationship until his death. “Friends, relatives and family are what will always affect your general condition,” the sisters believe. Swidler admits that the rabbi and other friends from the Jewish community still visit her.

Another secret of a sharp mind and longevity is curiosity and desire to learn new things. When Swidler was younger, she loved going to the theatre. Now she reads a lot and sometimes watches the news. Hoads notes that older people tend to fixate on their problems, while, in her opinion, it is important to be open and not lose interest in the world around them. Hoads tries to broaden her horizons by listening to audiobooks about things she hasn't been interested in before, like elephants and 20th-century opera singers.
