10 Healthy Habits that Will Let You Live to 100!

  1. Don’t retire. Evidence shows that in societies where people stop working abruptly, the incidence of obesity and chronic disease skyrockets after retirement.
  2. Floss every day. That may help keep your arteries healthy.
  3. Move around. Exercise is the only real fountain of youth that exists.
  4. East a fiber-rich cereal for breakfast. Getting a serving of whole grains, especially in the morning does wonders.
  5. Get at least 6 hours of shut eye. Instead of skimping on sleep to add more hours to your day, get more to add years to your life.
  6. Consume whole foods, not supplements. Avoid nutrient-lacking white foods (breads, flour, sugar) and go for all those colorful fruits and vegetables and dark whole-grain breads and cereals with their host of hidden nutrients.
  7. Be less neurotic. If this inborn trait is hard to overcome, find better way to manage when you’re stressed: Yoga, exercise, meditation, tai chai, or just deep breathing for a few moments is all good.
  8. Live like a Seventh Day Adventist. Americans who define themselves as life expectancy of 89. It’s important to cherish the body that’s on loan from God, which means no smoking alcohol abuse, or overindulging in sweets.
  9. Be a creature of habit. Live by strict routines, eating the same kind of diet and doing the same kinds of activities their whole lives.
  10. Stay connected. Having regular social contacts with friends and loved ones is the key to avoiding depression.
