Besides being breathtakingly beautiful, these five places have several things in common:
- Healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, seafood, and nuts. Low on meat, sugar, fat, and processed foods. Essentially, it's the Mediterranean diet.
- Daily exercise
- Little stress
- Ample amounts of sleep
- A sense of purpose
- Importance of family
I don't care so much about the number of years that I live. What matters to me is the quality of my time spent on earth. I never want to be a burden to someone or to live in pain, depression, or immobility. There is no predicting the future and anything can happen but I definitely want to give my best shot at the best life possible. So if this means that I need to eat better, catch a few extra zzz's, and take a deep breath every so often, then so be it. Are you with me?
