What an interesting looking book. As a chiropractor I’m immediately drawn to the suggestions about bone and muscle health, exercise and fitness.
But I also like the points on environmental health as well: #32 – You eat naturally – does your food? #59 – When you clean your home, don’t pollute your body; #61 – Make your world less plastic. I think that environmental influences on our health are becoming a greater and greater issue each day and we need to be thinking not only about what items we put into our bodies but also how we’re producing, packaging and shipping those items.
Evelyn, these are incredible tips! I know it may not be in my best interest to call attention to it on a Vegan blog, but I love the fish one. I have recently been trying to eat more fish (than other meats) because of the Omega 3s, but am learning more about their effects on the brain and on the body. These are great! Seriously!
You never need think that what you share will not be in your best interest, even if it is on my blog, which happens to focus on plant-based eating. The majority of the readers of this blog are not vegan, heck I don't even know if they are vegetarian, so please keep sharing. Your comment can help someone. ;)
I am glad you are learning more about this Omegas. Keep on keeping on!
The "Weekday vegetarian, weekend carnivore" tip sums up how hubby and I are changing our eating habits. While we aren't quite there yet we have been gradually adding more vegetarian and vegan dishes to our list of favorite foods.
Not only is is a bit kinder to the planet, and easier on our food budget, but its a fun way to explore all sorts of new foods.
This is a fantastic post and one of my favorite of yours because it covers everything. Aging well and living well includes mind, body and soul and this piece touches on all of that and more. You share the best stuff and I am so grateful to be one of your biggest fans.
What a great post to live to be 100 :) I use some of the things on the list like eating smaller meals, eating spinach, and doing aerobics among other things. We have got to eat healthy and exercise as this is crucial to living a longer life. Thanks for sharing Evelyn
Thank you! :)
I'm glad you are doing some of the things on the list. You know what that means? You're on your way to reaching the big 100. Can you even imagine that?
Thank you for chiming in!
I have printed this list Evelyn. I like simple rules, and these short 100 tips are just right. I noticed that the first 50 are mainly about eating healthily, and the second 50 has more about inner peace and contentment. I would focus on #62/63, #66/67/68, #73/74, #79 -100.
This is the first list I have seen that advocates listening to music for a long life. I agree, it probably has something to do with reducing stress. I listen to music all the time, but If you play it too hard you will start to lose your hearing earlier than usual.
I like your blog Evelyn, I shall be back for more pearls of wisdom.

Wow, have you read the book from front to back yet? Love the 100 ways listed there. Seems rather practical somewhat. Lots of natural remedies. I think we don't ever think of the obvious ones on the list like exercise.
Nowadays, most of that info can be found on tv or in the press, but people ignore it simply because that many rules leave you little to no freedom. You can't eat, drink, do the things that you enjoy every day. So what's the point in living longer if you're not happy? I'm guessing it's the same mentality as smokers have.
I know a lot of people who think "why try and live longer? i could get hit by a buss tomorrow".
You can't change their way of thinking, but there's still hope for the rest of us. Maybe they'll learn if they see more positive examples.
Wow. Certainly a lot to ponder there. I'm a health nut myself and am always interested in these tips. The single biggest thing that keeps me vigorous is having a creative passion. If we make expressing our Authentic-Self priority #1 we can be assured a full life of rich experiences.
I totally agree with you. Being our authentic-selves and making that #1, can truly make a difference in our lives. I've learned that when I'm not my authentic-self, I am not as happy and things don't turn out the way they should. It makes life more pleasurable. ;)
Welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping by, Rob!
Excellent article, a lot of people want to live until at least 100 years but they fail on the road. The stress, unhappiness and bad alimentation is generally the biggest killer for everyone. Thanks for sharing it, really great!
Oooooweee!!! I loved your post! :) I must admit this is one of my weaker areas. I definitely need to do better. I used to be very athletic in my younger days... Although I exercise, I definitely do not exercise enought. Not only that... I realize I should be more conscious of what goes into my body. I'm happy that I found your blog. I appreciate you creating awareness for people like myself. I definitely need to get on top of it!!! :)I will frequent your blog more often! :)

Glad you liked it! Welcome to my blog and thank you for commenting!
I'm with you on the exercising. I don't do it as much as I should and there really is no excuse.
I appreciate you sharing and chiming in! :)
Good to see you! :)
Go on and get your weight loss on..I ain't mad at you!! Really, that is a good thing. I know you will feel a difference in your body.
Please let me know how things go for you. Best wishes!
I will I am thinking about starting a blog about it. I did it before but now...... I have to get serious. My love affair with food has turned into some seriously messed up baby daddy issues (with food I mean, I have no kids) .LOL
Okay. I know you'll get in it check.
That is a good idea to start a blog about it. It would not only help you, but it could also help others.
I love hearing news like this. Rock on Darren and get it done! :)
I love this post. Permission to copy and share the list with my friends.
#64 jumped on my face while I read through the list. Have you finished reading the book yet? Do you have more to share from it, especially on #64?
Have a beautiful day.
You don't need permission to print and share. I have the share buttons below the post, so share to your heart's desire. :)
I haven't finished reading this book because I am reading and reviewing other books at this time. It is a very quick read, though.
As far as cell phones is concerned there is a device one can purchase to lower the amount of exposure to the energy that comes from cell phones. If you do a little search on it, I'm sure you can find what I'm talking about. I personally don't use my cell phone too much..rarely have it turned on. I only turn it on and use it when I'm traveling. People get onto me all the time for not having my phone on. I think I do it to cut down on using it as much.
You have a beautiful day too! ;)
I'm glad I found this post. I like to read these kind of books. Heck! I like to read most kinds of books. I've added it to my wish list. Maybe a family member will be kind enough to buy it for me as a gift (if I don't get it sooner). Thanks for posting the list.
