Rosetta Stone for a Long & Healthy Life?

Healthy Living Apple IllustrationWhether you want to live to a hundred or not, we now have scientific evidence that centenarians–who’ve lived for 100 years or longer— share healthy, active lifestyles.

You’ve heard the myth that “the older you get, the sicker you get”—right? Au contraire: the 18-year-long New England Centenarian Study suggests that “the older you get, the healthier you’ve been,” by making these 6 choices–

  • Staying connected to others of all ages and involved in your community
  • Exercising daily
  • Continuing to use your brain
  • Learning to handle stress
  • Coping through humor
  • Finding spiritual meaning, interest and joy in everyday life.
