Living to Age 100 or More

Glenn Ruffenach wrote an article for SmartMoney about how to live to the age of 100 or more.. Information was gathered from UnitedHealthcare, the Census Bureau, and surveys, including input from centenarians themselves. Here’s what it takes to lead a very long life:
  • Eight hours or more of sleep each night
  • Eating right with balanced meals
  • Social connections regularly with family and friends
  • Exercise (every day or nearly every day)
  • Spiritual activity such as church activities or meditation
"Finally, researchers turned to cultural affairs and asked centenarians and boomers to identify – from a list of 14 notable people (including President Obama, singer Paul McCartney and actors Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts) – their preferred dinner guest. The top choice among centenarians and boomers alike: the comedian Betty White."
