    Centenarian Habits

    April 26, 2023

    The great news is that the list is short!

    Over Easter, my sister in law expressed her frustration with all the different gurus out there, espousing so many different ways to eat which are all supposed to be ‘the’ answer.

    “I wish someone would write a book that just simplified everything and said “This is how you should be eating”!!!’

    I understand the frustration. I’ve gone through different ‘phases’ with my eating choices, too.

    But success leaves clues, and people have been looking at both individuals and cultures who live 100 years or longer, and are healthy all the way along. In my opinion, it doesn’t do me much good if I live a long time but I’m sick most of the time. Quite frankly, if I can’t do what I want to do every day, I don’t know that I’d want to hang around that long!

    I recently read terrific article which summed up what all these people and cultures are doing and I did a short video sharing their findings. Fortunately, the list of things ‘to do’ is quite short – Just 4 habits, and I think we can all manage that, right?
