Stay ActiveStaying active is one of the important ways to stay young as you age.

The New England Centenarian Study, conducted in Boston, found that longevity does indeed run in families. You are four times more likely to live past 90 if you have a parent that is a centenarian.

But is that the whole story? Hardly. There are lifestyle changes you can adopt now to add years to your life. Try these:

  • Eat a healthy diet

  • Exercise 30 minutes at least five days a week
  • Don’t smoke
  • Keep your mind alert and engaged
  • Stay optimistic
  • Socialize regularly
  • Lose excess weight
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Get regular chiropractic check ups
  • Avoid risky behaviors (addictions, sky-diving, etc.)

Many factors influence life expectancy. Fortunately, some are under our control. Do you want to live to be 100? Then start making some changes so you can get there! Go to http://www.agingresearch.org/calculator and take the quiz. It’s never too late to start changing bad habits… good luck!
