The people you surround yourself with influence your behaviors, so choose friends who have healthy habits.
Have fun, be active. Ride a bike instead of driving, for example.
I know exactly what my values are and what I love to do. That's worth additional years right there. I say no to a lot of stuff that would be easy money but deviates from my meaning of life.
A long healthy life is no accident. It begins with good genes, but it also depends on good habits.
The brutal reality about aging is that it has only an accelerator pedal. We have yet to discover whether a brake exists for people.
You rarely get satisfaction sitting in an easy chair. If you work in a garden on the other hand, and it yields beautiful tomatoes, that's a good feeling.
The secret to longevity, as I see it, has less to do with diet, or even exercise, and more to do with the environment in which a person lives: social and physical. What do I mean by this? They live rewardingly inconvenient lives.
Black beans and soy beans are the cornerstones of longevity diets around the world.
Inconvenience yourself: ditch the remote, the garage door opener, the leaf-blower; buy a bike, broom, rake, and snow shovel.
Select your friendships carefully. Gather people around you who will reinforce your lifestyle.
I think we live in a culture that relentlessly pursues comfort. Ease is related to disease. We shouldn't always be fleeing hardship. Hardship also brings people together. We should welcome it.
I live on the water. I live in a neighborhood that's consummately connected to my neighbors. I bump into them every day. I can bike to work.
The newness effect of a new thing wears off in nine months to a year, but financial security can last a lifetime.
People who are making it to 100 live in environments where they are regularly nudged into physical activity.
