Secrets for Longevity

Dear reader,

If you’re a teenager or an young adult between 20 and 40-years old then probably you haven’t still thought about longevity. However, if you’re older than 50-years old (like me) then I wonder if you have already started to think how can you live longer and healthier these days… 😉

In this specific article and some others in a near future I will try to write about possible secrets for longetivity. It’s interesting to mention that nowadays there are a lot of centenarians (people over 100-years old) around the world. For example, the current oldest living people are:

  •  Violet Brown (from Jamaica): 117 years-old
  • Nabi Tajima (from Japan): 116 years-old – note: we have the same birthday!  🙂
  • Chiyo Miyako (from Japan): 115 years-old, will become 116 years-old on next Tuesday!
  • Ana Maria Vela Rubio (from Spain): 115 years-old
  • Marie Josephine Gaudette (from Italy): 115 years-old
  • Giuseppina Projetto (from Italy): 114 years-old
  • Kane Tanaka (from Japan): 114 years-old
  • Maria Giuseppa Robucci (from Italy): 114 years-old
  • Iso Nakamura (from Japan): 114 years-old
  • Tae Ito (from Japan): 113 years-old

Some insights can be seen at the list above:

  • All the current oldest ten living people in the world are women!
  • Half of them are Japanese and three women are Italian…

There isn’t a definitive recipe to live longer and healthier, but some of the secrets are:

  1. Do exercises regularly,
  2. Have a balanced diet (most based on vegetables, fruits and fish),
  3. Don’t smoke and,
  4. Drink moderately.

I also would include:

  • Don’t become stressed at anything, especially with mundane things,
  • Laught a lot 🙂 and,
  • Think positively.

What about you, dear reader? Do you agree with me? Do have others recommendations to live longer and healthier? Feel free to coment here, please.
