5 Attributes of Longevity:
Increase Your Chances


Non-Agenarians are those who are age 90 and above. Centenarians are those 100 and above. There is also a category called Supercentenarians who are 105 years of age and above. There are some characteristics that typically accompany people that live good healthy high quality lives as they age to 90 and better. Keep in mind that a good set of genes for longevity will never hurt with this process.

Staying Mentally and Physically Active: People that have lived to these ripe old ages have'nt done so by staying put mentally or physically. They stay on the go physically with activities of various sorts, whether it be exercise, or other interests that keep them moving. They are never sitting idle with their head in their hands watching the world go by. They are very involved people. Some of them are well into their 80's and are not exhibiting any sedentary behavior either mentally or physically. They always seem to enjoy being engaged in conversations with the people they are packing groceries for, which is stimulating to their mental status, and just being there doing the job is physically engaging.

Coping Well with Stress: There's no denying the damage that occurs from stress. So much of life is 10% of what happens to us, and 90% of our reaction to it. The way we process stress has a huge impact on our longevity. The folks that are living these long healthy lives have an inherent resilency with a great ability to bounce back from the set backs that life throws our way. Life is meaningful to them whether they are experiencing good or bad times and they are accepting of change even if it isn't particularly pleasant. . They are very flexible people which will make for good adaptability for them throughout life.

Future Oriented: These folks look to the future optimistically with the glass half full rather than half empty. They don't see themselves as not being part of the future and look forward to it as well. They are very positive and are usually pleasant company to keep.

Socialize Frequently: Something these people have in common is their joy for socializing. They are always happy to be around lots of other people of all kinds. Spending time around others frequently is something that will occupy their minds as they interact with each other, adding to their mental activity.

Lo-fat Diet and Regular Exercise: Eating 15 calories per pound of desired weight is the formula for optimum weight maintenance. So if you want a weight of 150 pounds take 15 multiplied by 150, and your caloric intake would be 2,250. People with ages past 90 have had good diets for the most part, and regular exercise. The proof of what the right food can do is in the age they live to be and the vitality with which they live it. Coupled with exercise you can't lose!
