How to Live to Be 100

When I came across the article entitled, "How to Live to Be 100," from MarthaStewart.com I was intrigued. You just can't pass up reading an article like that.

While most of the secrets were in fact not secrets at all (eating right, exercising, drinking alcohol in moderation, etc.), there was one tip that really stood out for me. One that really applies to my own personal quest for health.

Here it is:

Coaching - When it comes to eating right and exercising, we can all use a little support. I visualize patients -- and now readers -- as cheerleaders of sorts, because if I don't practice what I teach, what good would my lesson be? Decide who this person is in your life, and discuss your health goals with him or her. Children are great for this. They love to tell their parents what to do. Another option: Check with your health insurance provider. Some offer health-coaching services through their websites.

The practice what you preach notation really resonated with me, as I am constantly telling you all how to be healthy. Definitely something to consider...

I'm going to be one active 100 year old! I refuse to be sitting all day doing nothing. The tip about coaching is an interesting one; It makes alot of sense and I need to practice more of what I preach. Let's have a cheer to living a long, active and wonderful life!

I thought the secret to living to 100 is drinking three gallons of Thunderbird wine a week and eating bread fried in fatback. Why fatback? Because bacon is too lean.
