The Secret to a Long and Healthy Life!


What’s the secret to living to see your 100th Birthday and still have your health and energy on your side? Well, these 100 year olds gave 100 tips on daily habits they do to keep their health in full swing.

1. “Don’t look at the calendar. Just keep celebrating every day.”


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.”


17. “Find your passion and live it.”


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.”


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.”


55. “This is some advice for the ladies. Don’t marry an older man, marry a younger one.”


68. “I think [people] have to be curious. They have to be interested in life outside their little aches and pains. They have to be excited about seeing new things, meeting new people, watching a new play—just passionate about life.”


76. “Take naps every day.”


84. “I take a drink of Scotch every day. And I feel great afterward.”


89. “Laughter keeps you healthy. You can survive by seeing the humor in everything. Thumb your nose at sadness; turn the tables on tragedy. You can’t laugh and be angry, you can’t laugh and feel sad, you can’t laugh and feel envious.”


91. “Have a good appetite, lots of friends, and keep busy.”
