Some years ago while holidaying I met a very
nice and kind older lady.
She was always dressing in fashionable clothes,
looking very cheerful, happy and terribly active.
I was so intrigued by her youthfulness that I
decided to ask her about her secrets of feeling
so enthusiastic and excited about her life.
…….” I live in this wonderful resort among
these lovely people, whom I greet and smile to
whenever I meet them.
During the day in the winter months, I go for
long walks by the sea, which is so invigorating
In the summer months, I enjoy swimming, and
I lie in the sunlight savouring the salty water
and all the calmness and tranquillity around me.
I cherish my love for my partner for many years
now, and I sleep peacefully at night.

Today only a few people live to reach a very
old age and die from natural causes;
but more and more human beings live longer
these days than ever before.

one hundred depends on your genetics;
and especially your mother — her medical
history and habits, but the rest and the most,
definitely depends on you.
There is a lot you can do to improve your
probability for a long and healthy old age.
Your every day habits and past circumstances
will influence this;
and together with health and technology progress,
scientific research as well as disease prevention
and various treatments will determine, without
doubt, how long you will live.
