Fun fact, the oldest living person on record was a smoker, for 100 years and she lived to be 122years old. No, that does not mean cigarettes aren't bad for you, please no reading between any lines there... As a matter of fact, about 3,000 people die from second hand smoke lung cancer in the U.S. annually. This is not a rant about smoking, I just want you to realize genetics do play a giant role but just as much, so does environment.
What do these elders have in common?
Genetics, they have some good ones, but let's say all your relatives died early, don't fret, you can't control the uncontrollable but you can decide how to treat your body.
Exercise, it doesn't have to be bodybuilding but moving around daily is another reason they lived long lives.
A practicing hobby, gardening, dancing, something to bring joy to their life, an activity for stimulation
Strong willed. Mind, body and spirit determined to be happy and conquer obstacles.
They were of the sort of farmers, an agrarian lifestyle or setting, so not so urban. They lived by the land.
Sense of Purpose, they didn't have as much stress due to this buffer
Non processed food diets, mostly plant based.
