Living forever

Sorry, but I want to live forever.

That might seem silly to you, but with today’s technological advances, it is entirely within reach.

One thing I know though, is that if I want to live forever, I have to keep my brain, body and heart in good nick.

Mario Martinez is a psychoneuroimmunologist (he studies the interaction between the brain and the body’s self-protection mechanisms). He did a study of people who are over 100 years old.

He only studied the people who were over 100 years old and fully mobile, living independently, able to take care of themselves, happy, social and healthy.

He found some interesting things. He found that healthy older people keep on learning. One person, aged 102, started a course in Japanese. When his son asked him why he said “because I’m thinking of heading over to Japan next year”.

Martinez also found that healthy older people deliberately did exercise. He studied one lady who had devoted herself to yoga and worked as a yoga teacher (aged 104). She taught every day, and was as happy and healthy as a 30 year old.

One Australian older person (100) put a complaint into Medicare every time she got sick. She was studying her third PhD and was as fit and healthy as anyone.

Mario Martinez writes about these amazing people in his books The Mind Body Code, and The Mind Body Self. They’re a bit pricey, and they’re not easy reads, but they’re well worth it.

It’s amazing what’s possible these days. I definitely want to live forever. What about you?
