Top Ten Tips For Living Well

 

We are living longer these days.  Life expectancy has increased by more than 25 years in the past century.  There are more than 100,000 Americans over the age of 100.  But quantity of years isn’t everything.  Maintaining the quality of your lifestyle is every bit as important.  Most people would agree that it is far better to have 85 really great years and then go quickly than to live to 95 but spend the last 20 of those years unable to fully enjoy life.

Good genes may explain why some of us seem to be able to stay well far into the later years of life.  But genetics alone are not the whole story.  One of the clichés of medicine is that “genes load the gun but environment pulls the trigger”.  How you prepare for the future in your 30’s, 40’s and 50’s is very likely going to determine how much you enjoy your 70’s and 80’s. 

Most of us know the common advice: don’t smoke, don’t eat junk food, get a colonoscopy.  Those things may make your life a bit longer.  Even if they don’t, they will certainly make it seem longer.  Fortunately, not everything that is good for you has to feel bad. 

Here are some painless tips for making the most of your future years with the Princeton Longevity Center Top Ten List For Living Well.
