If there's someone's advice that you should take a few minutes to listen to, it's someone who has been around for awhile. So The Guardian has some advice from a group of 90 plus year olds. Here is a synopsis of what the advice they gave.

  1. Stay active - That's from a 94-year-old woman named Jean Miller who still goes to the gym, and she's also trying to learn German.  She also said to be as patient as you can, and try not to worry so much.
  2. Get responsible about your finances - This comes from another 94-year-old named Pam Zeldin.  She doesn't mean get rich, but try to get financially stable as soon as you can, because it makes everything else easier.
  3. Get healthy and eat less - That's from a 90-year-old guy in New Jersey.  He says a lot of people eat because they want to, not because they need to.
  4. Take things slowly, and avoid stress - That's from a 99-year-old guy in England named Don Anderson.  Obviously some stress is inevitable, but he says avoiding too much stress at work is a huge step.
  5. Keep finding new things that interest you - According to 91-year-old Sheila Keating, it's really important if you want to make it to your 90's, but she also says luck is a big part of it.
