Move Naturally
You don’t need a formal, rigorous exercise plan. We’re talking here a
change in lifestyle that is fundamentally active. We’re designed to
move. We’ve not meant to drive 100 meters in a car to pick up chips at
the local store. Walk, do yard work, whatever. Do exercises/activities
that you enjoy.

Have Right Outlook
Slow down. When you’re constantly in a hurry and stressed out, this has
a negative impact on your health. Limiting negative stress is one of
the healthiest things you can do for yourself.
(3) Have a clear purpose. The Japanese call it ”ikigai” 生き甲斐 (lit: life + value, be worth while). You must have a passion, a calling, a purpose. There’s got to be a reason to get out of bed every day.

Eat Wisely
(4) Drink a little (wine) everyday.
(5) Eat mainly plant-based foods. Small amounts of meat and fish are OK.
(6) Hara Hachi Bu: Eat until 80% full. Do not eat eat until you’re stuffed.

Be Connected with others
(7) Put family, loved ones first.
(8) Belong to a community. Many in his study belonged to faith-based communities.
(9) Belong to the right tribe. That is, hang out with people with healthy habits, physical and emotional ones.
