3 Tips For Longer Life

May 20, 2008 at 2:00 pm 1 comment

Whoever can find a way to extend life without much effort will have the world at his feet and millions in the bank. Sadly, no instant cure for aging exists. We do have other ways, though, as certified by the centenarians of the world, with these traits being common among them.

1. A loving family. In this day and age, families are a lot farther apart, physically and emotionally. Most centenarians have close family ties! Surveys also show that people with a happy family live longer. Coincidence? I think not.

2. A purpose. These centenarians also share a common trait of being driven people, their life with a clear goal. It may be something as simple as caring for a garden, or writing a book. A purpose gives life more meaning, they say. It may be a good time to think about yours!

3. Healthy eating habits. Smoking and obesity are said to be taking ten years off the average American’s lifespan. These oldies tend to eat simply and healthily, or even eat whatever they want but not worry about it!

Personally, I wouldn’t want to stick around for more than a hundred years. What other tips do you have? Share them!

    Enjoy “stress”! All this stuff about avoiding stress just makes you stress more. “Driven” people are busy people, with purpose – and probably quite “stressful” lives, as they usually have busy schedules yet encounter the same everyday annoyances – a delayed flight, traffic jams, the unhelpful check-out lady, the housekeeper who might be pilfering or just not dusting under the sofa… So if you focus on the result, on what it is that drives you, you’ll get there!
