Secrets of Living to 100

1.  Do your own house and yard work, go up and down your stairs with your laundry, knead your own dough. Incorporate more movement every hour. 

2.  Know your purpose. Take time to recognize your values, strengths, talents, passions and gifts. Reflect, and work on yourself. 

3.  Down shift. Relieve chronic stress by finding time each day to nap, meditate or pray. 

4.  The 80% rule. Cut 20 percent of your daily calories with proven healthy practices: Eat a big breakfast, dine with your family, and begin each meal by expressing appreciation. 

5.  Plant slant. Eat mostly plant-based foods, and small portions of meat no more than twice a week. 

6.  Family first. Living in a loving, thriving family can add up to six years to your life. Work on a positive, committed relationship and stay close to your aging parents and grandparents. 

7.  Belong. Those with the most social connectedness tend to live longer. Be part of a group of healthy-minded, supportive people. 

8.  Right tribe. Good friends have a positive effect on your longevity. Support them and adopt healthy behaviors together.
