At present people no longer live for many years, there are very few who manage to live more than 85 years. Japan is a country that has an incredible culture, which also keeps a lot of secrets where we can find things to improve our quality of life. On this occasion a Japanese doctor revealed important secrets.
These secrets are nothing less than the advice to live more than 100 years, ideal for us to carry them out. Read carefully!
Tips to live more than 100 years
Feeding in a balanced way.
All people all over the world, at any time and of any nationality, ethnic group or gender who have lived many years, have one thing in common: none were overweight.
To maintain good health use the stairs and carry your own things yourself. I climb the steps two at a time to exercise my muscles.
Rediscover the energy of youth.
Energy is linked to well-being and has to do with the way we eat and sleep. Remember when we were young and having fun, we often forgot to eat or sleep. I think we can act in the same way as adults. Too many rules tire the body.
Let’s plan always in advance. My schedule is complete for the next five years with conferences and my usual work at the hospital.
Retiring is never necessary. Otherwise, it should always happen after 65 years. Fifty years ago, only 125 Japanese lived beyond 100 years. Today, they are more than 36,000.
Continue contributing to society.
After a certain age, we must make efforts to participate in society. Since I am 65 years old, I practice an activity as a volunteer. I keep working 18 hours, 7 days a week and every moment is a pleasure.
Transmit our knowledge.
Share what we know. I give 150 lectures a year; some are for children in schools and others for heads of companies. I speak normally for an hour or an hour and a half and standing. This helps me stay strong.
Understand the value of different disciplines.
Science alone is not enough to cure or help people. It treats us as a whole, while diseases are individual. Each person is unique and the disease is stuck in his heart. That is why we need to turn to the liberal and visual arts, since medicine is not enough.
Follow the instinct.
Contrary to what is believed, doctors are not in a position to cure everything. So, why cause useless pain with some surgeries? I am convinced that music and animal therapy can help people much more than doctors imagine.
Do not let yourself be invaded by the accumulation of material goods. Remember that we never know when our last hour will arrive and none of all that we can take with us.
Have models of life and inspiration.
Knowing an inspiring person motivates us. My father studied in the United States in the year 1900. He was a pioneer and for me, one of my heroes. Then, I was lucky to find others in my life and when I find myself disoriented in front of a problem I wonder how they would have acted. This is an excellent exercise!
Do not underestimate the power of fun.
Pain is a mystery and having fun is the best way to put your head in something else. When a child has a broken tooth and we start playing with it, he immediately forgets the pain.
