Living To Be 100 Years Old!


When it comes to longevity, it is hard to beat the mountains and the sea! This photo was taken during a trip to Alaska in the late 1990's. What are the words from Blowing in the Wind? "How many years must a mountain exist, before it is washed to the sea?"

I have a goal of living to be 100 years old. Other than a little bit of luck, the following is a list of some of the other factors for me to consider if I am going to reach this lofty goal. This information is from the illuminating book, "We Live Too Short and Die Too Long," by Walter M Bortz II, MD.

  1. Consistent exercise
  2. A healthy diet
  3. Plenty of sleep
  4. Work satisfaction and a sense of usefulness
  5. Happiness
  6. Social stimulation
  7. Intellectual stimulation
