Revealing Prescriptions For Lonnngevity
January 22, 2018 | Chad Hildebrand
By now some of us are three weeks deep into those New Year's resolutions, and it may make it seem like 2018 is going to be a long one. But what if we had to hold onto those ambitious intentions for the next 100 years? Famed philosopher and author Ilchi Lee may be able to put our minds at ease... by removing those pesky resolutions and adding simple physical, mental and spiritual "maneuvers" throughout the day that can nearly double our life expectancy.
Walk This Way
In Lee's latest book, "I've Decided To Live 120 Years" he outlines something rather simple... we should live a life that is not only physically productive, but one that is also mentally and spiritually fruitful. Sounds pretty simple, right? Keeping an active body, finding purpose and connecting with nature all help us to better "feel what is going on inside" ourselves. So, just as we had thought, nature gets us right in the feels. He goes on to explain that simply taking a walk can be as instrumental as meditation and prayer for mental and spiritual activity. Therefore, maybe we shouldn't weigh ourselves down with complicated resolutions... because (to me) it sounds likes simpler is better.

Cruise That Way
Don't like walking? How about cruising? According to Conde Naste Traveler, the latest and greatest trend in health could be just that... cruising your way to wellness. If this sounds appealing, you may want to check out Lindblad Expeditions, Seabourn or Regent Seven Seas who are rolling out new wellness-based cruises that include hiking, kayaking, yoga, meditation, tai chi and paddle boarding.
And if Alaska in June, or Mediterranean Sea-hopping Greece, Italy and Malta in October sound like your cup of sea, you will have the added bonus of Andrew Weil aboard the ship on those dates.

Grateful Every Day
Personally, I am not a big fan of yearly or early calendar resolutions that are set to expire. I feel like resolutions should be fundamental tweaks that support our long term life goals. For me, struggling through restrictions for a few months has never created a lasting habit.
So... as the sun was setting on the final day of 2017, I reminded myself to be grateful. Not only in that moment, but many moments each and every day. Not just in 2018, but through 2100... because I (too) have decided to live those 120 years.
