11 Habits That Will Help You Live 100 Years
Healthy Steps to a Longer Life
One of the biggest factors that determines how well you age is not your genes
but how well you live. Not convinced? A study published in 2009 in the British
Medical Journal of 20,000 British folks shows that you can cut your risk of
having a stroke in half by doing the following things: being active for 30
minutes a day, eating five daily servings of fruit and vegetables, and avoiding
cigarettes and excess alcohol.
While those are some of the obvious steps you can take to age well, researchers
have discovered that centenarians tend to share certain traits in how they eat,
move about, and deal with stress—the sorts of things we can emulate to improve
our own aging process. Of course, getting to age 100 is enormously more likely
if your parents did. Still, Thomas Perls, who studies the century-plus set at
Boston University School of Medicine, believes that assuming you've sidestepped
genes for truly fatal diseases like Huntington's, "there's nothing stopping you
from living independently well into your 90s." Heck, if your parents and
grandparents were heavy smokers, they might have died prematurely without ever
reaching their true potential lifespan, so go ahead and shoot for those triple
digits. Follow these 12 habits and check out Perls' lifetime risk calculator to
see how long you can expect to live.
