Here are tips for a long and healthy life--for people of all ages.

Who better to give them than centenarians?  :applause:



1. "Don't look at the calendar. Just keep celebrating every day."

2. "Invest in quality pieces, they never go out of style."

3. "I make myself go out every day, even if it's only to walk around the block. The key to staying young is to keep moving."

4. "Exercise, to me, is totally unnecessary. I think it's mostly overrated."

5. "The use of vitamins? Forget it. And I don't encourage going to a lot of doctors, either."

6. "Fall in love, get married. Sex is to be encouraged."

7. "Even if you feel hatred, keep it to yourself. Don't hurt other people for any reason."

8. "Don't ever give up on love."

9. "Nobody else controls you."

10. "Make time to cry."

To be continued...

Here are more: :hello:

11. "Travel while you’re young and able. Don’t worry about the money, just make it work. Experience is far more valuable than money will ever be.”

12. “Don’t compare. You’ll never be happy with your life. The grass is always greener.”

13. “If you are embarrassed to be dating someone, you should not be dating them.”

14. “Do one thing each day that is just for you.”

15. “Don’t be a cheapskate.”

16. “Forgive.”

17. “Find your passion and live it.”

18. “Most time things will figure themselves out.”

19. “Choose the right parents.”

20. “Have a pet. Life gets lonely sometimes. Pets are reminders of how we’re all living things.”

Stay tuned...

@GS: I think #19  is just a tongue-in-cheek way of stressing the importance of having a good set of genes.

@bjj: Ewan ko nga ba bakit napasali ito. Why should you even be dating someone who embarrasses you/ or is embarrassed by you? Doesn't make sense. Btw. kamusta ang lovelife? :-)

Anyways, nice to know some people find the list helpful...

To continue:



21. “I’m not saying you have to practice one religion or another, or not practice one religion or another… I’m just saying that you should figure out what you believe in and live it completely.”

22. “Learn to adapt.”

23. “Take time to mourn what you’ve lost.”

24. “Keep going and never give up.”

25. “Make yourself walk.”

26. “I drink the faucet water.”

27. “Don’t just die all because you want to.”

28. “Life is fun. It’s all up to the person. Be satisfied. You don’t have to be ‘happy’ all the time, you need to be satisfied.”

29. “Love people. Find something to like about the person—it’s there—because we’re all just people.”

30. “Get a great education. That is something that no one can take away from you.”

23. “Take time to mourn what you’ve lost.”

^That is actually a lot better than " Don't be sad that it ended. Be glad that it happened"---Dr. Seuss

When you hear something similar from abnormally cheerful people, put down the electric razor. Walk away.

^ What does that mean, teh? :hihi:

Some of the tips seem repetitive, I realize. Still, here goes...

31. “Think positive.”

32. “Exercise every morning… I have a machine… it’s a cross between a rowing machine and a bicycle… [I do] 150, 200 [rows] every morning. I won’t leave my bedroom until I’ve done that.”

33. "Be active. I do things my way, like skiing when I’m 100. Nobody else does that even if they have energy. And I try to eat pretty correctly and get exercise and fresh air and sunshine.”

34. “If you’re positive you can get through it OK. When you think negatively, you’re putting poison on your body. Just smile. They say laughter is the best medicine there is.”

35. “For years I would not take any medicines at all. I don’t think they do much, and lots of times the doctor is using you as a guinea pig.”

36. “Don’t die too early.”

37. “Just go ahead and do your thing no matter what.”

38. “You can involve yourself in local problems. There are all sorts of things that have to be tended to in the world.”

39. “Have lots of people in the house and lots of different kinds of people—young, old, black, white, people from all over the world. People have always energized me.”

40. “Just keep going.”

@Prospera- Well.... if you are one of those perky people and there's a person with a hangdog expression on their face, go stub your toe against a wall before you present your face...... I suppose.....   :D

Continued from Mental Floss:

41. “I attribute my longevity to a great extent to walking, not being in the back of the car strapped down.”

42. “I’ve done almost everything that I know of: ballet, I’ve done tai chi. I’ve done yoga. I walked 4 miles a day. I stretched and flexed. I wrote the book.”


43. “I put my health down to whiskey and cigarettes. I only drink when I’m out, but my doctor said I wouldn’t be alive without them. I’m still alive, and I can lift my elbows—it’s great.”


44. “We all remember how as children, when we were having fun, we often forgot to eat or sleep. I believe that we can keep that attitude as adults, too. It’s best not to tire the body with too many rules such as lunchtime and bedtime.”

45. “For breakfast I drink coffee, a glass of milk, and some orange juice with a tablespoon of olive oil in it. Olive oil is great for the arteries and keeps my skin healthy. Lunch is milk and a few cookies, or nothing when I am too busy to eat. I never get hungry because I focus on my work. Dinner is veggies, a bit of fish and rice, and, twice a week, 100 grams of lean meat.”

46. “There is no need to ever retire, but if one must, it should be a lot later than 65.”

47. “When a doctor recommends you take a test or have some surgery, ask whether the doctor would suggest that his or her spouse or children go through such a procedure. Contrary to popular belief, doctors can’t cure everyone. So why cause unnecessary pain with surgery? I think music and animal therapy can help more than most doctors imagine.”

48. “To stay healthy always, take the stairs and carry your own stuff. I take two stairs at a time, to get my muscles moving.”

49. “My inspiration is Robert Browning’s poem 'Abt Vogler.' My father used to read it to me. It encourages us to make big art, not small scribbles. It says to try to draw a circle so huge that there is no way we can finish it while we are alive. All we see is an arch; the rest is beyond our vision but it is there in the distance.”

50. “Pain is mysterious, and having fun is the best way to forget it.”
