9. Eat your antioxidants
10. Marry well
11. Exercise
12. Laugh a little
13. Lose weight
14. Manage stress
15. Meditate
Yes, eat more antioxidants !
From warding off heart disease to slowing degeneration diseases, including atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's and cancer, talk of the health benefits of antioxidants are quite common today. Antioxidants work by neutralizing highly reactive, destructive compounds called free radicals. Research shows that certain types of beans (kidney, pinto, black) are among the best sources of antioxidants, while blueberries and other berries follow close behind

Stay up to have great sex and burn some calories, this will put a smile on your face and give you more energy to walk a dog to the doctor where you will get the VAP test. In the office, you'll meet a rich old lady who will be dying...(she got the VAP test too late). You let her go ahead of you -she thinks you are so sweet and leaves you all of her money. You'll chill out and marry another happy, chill, rich person. You'll laugh a lot and have no stress. You'll meditate on your happiness and weath while eating blueberries in your home in Capri. You won't smoke because it stinks.
Nice life. Thanks, Forbes.

I'm rather partial to the have more sex and be rich methods.

But, of course, more sex doesn't mean promiscuity, which will probably lead to a shorter life span. But it's still a good one!

#3 is my favorite and a close second is #11. Sex and exercise... always more fun with a partner.

They forgot a couple.

I read, and beleive the studies, that eating less makes you live longer, provided you get the necessary vitamins.
Something like 10% less = 30% longer life.

And you might like to add,
Leave the city and it's smog.

And maybe,
Don't fret about your kids.
