Use proper butcher's sausages - not  supermarket sausages - for your sausage sandwiches.

Take music, live ideally, or if not recorded, in huge quantities. The most accessible of the arts, most deployable to your mood.

Get out more, go find live events, and then attend them. Don't let entertainment belong to 'other people' and the internet.

Comedy clubs, go to these, when they're good, they're very very good, when they're bad its often funnier still.

Spoken word, stop being scared, its just songs without music, we should feel comfortable with it, not embarrassed.

Example 1.
Local pub in Cambridge last wednesday evening, happened to have the camera with me.

Example 2.
My mate Alex, turns out this stuff like nobodies business. Not my video this one.

Never drink French wine. Eat healthy, keep fit, die anyway, life is not a rehersal, make the best of it while you are here you might get knocked down by a bus tomorrow.

I asked my doctor whether giving up beer, cheese, chocolate and cigars would make me live longer - he said probably not but it would feel like eternity!

Something I heard once:

Having a gorgeous wife shortens your life by five years compared to an ugly one (worry & stress over her cheating etc.) BUT having no wife at all reduces it by a further 5 years.

So if us blokes want to live longer, we need to consider girls that have hit a few branches on the way down falling out of the ugly tree.

Hi Suzy, I already do all of these things, except the nightclub bit. I'm FAR too old to go to a nightclub!

Never sober up and only use the best quality cocaine and brown heroin.

Never eat a vegetable. Little buggers get stuck in yer teef.

Avoid New age and eastern mysticism nonsense like 'Chakras' (WTF! Can't remeber any chakras from my anatomy classes). 

Do common sense things like far more exercise.

A young at heart gentleman in our neck of the woods is about to celebrate his 100th., birthday.

How to live until you are that age...

  • Live an active life, both mentally and physically. You don't have to be an exercise nut, but keep moving. Walking, golfing, swimming-- anything at all is good. Implement a stretching program to maintain your flexibility and lift weights to build muscle and prevent osteoporosis.

  • 2

    Stay married. Numerous studies indicate that married people live longer than #" id="itxthook1" rel="nofollow" style="color: darkgreen; padding-bottom: 1px; font-size: 100%; font-weight: normal; text-decoration: underline; border-bottom-color: darkgreen; border-bottom-width: 0.07em; border-bottom-style: solid; background-color: transparent;">single people. There's the old joke that it just seems longer for married people, but in reality it seems to help.

  • 3

    Maintain your ideal weight. #" id="itxthook2" rel="nofollow" style="color: darkgreen; padding-bottom: 1px; font-size: 100%; font-weight: normal; text-decoration: underline; border-bottom-color: darkgreen; border-bottom-width: 0.07em; border-bottom-style: solid; background-color: transparent;">Being overweight will definitely limit your chances of becoming a centenarian and is likely to make the journey a slow and painful one.

  • 4

    Drink moderately and don't smoke at all.

  • 5

    Have good genes. Extreme long life seems to run in families and may be based on common genetic and environmental factors. If you have a centenarian sibling, your chances of living past the century mark increase greatly. (Of course, you're probably pretty old already yourself.)

  • 6

    Eliminate unnecessary stress as it shortens your life. Finding satisfying, meaningful work is likely to contribute to a long life, and certainly does to having a life you enjoy. If you're retired, do something that gives purpose and value to your life. See 14 Balance Home and Work and 16 Set Goals.

  • 7

    Develop close and respectful relationships with your friends and loved ones. This may actually be harder than living for 100 years, but it's a big help if you can manage it.

  • 8

    Live simply . Huck Finn probably lived to 100 because he understood that today is what counts, fine clothes are itchy, and money is a burden.

    BUT, I really wouldn't mind finding out IF lots more money IS a burden...frown

Every morning look at yourself in a full mirror (if you can). Don't say anything...after seeing yourself, say "hello you". You can get funny with it if you feel like being silly...heck even do a little "grrr, baby, Yeahhh!!!" in your undies! We don't "see" ourselves often enough what with crap just being thrown in our faces about how we "should" look. We got bodies to live in!! be happy you got that and go forth from there
