Lessons For A Long and Happy Life
Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara is a newly found idol of mine. He passed away this month at age 105, still working up to 18 hours a day seeing patients. After reading a couple of articles and interviews with him, he had some of the following gems in regard to living a long and fulfilling life:
Don't be overweight.
Have plans and projects well into the future - years into the future.
Don't retire, or if you must do it later than 65.
Share what you know and contribute to help others.
Carry your own things, and take the stairs, not the elevator.
The best way to handle pain is to have fum.
It takes more than science to heal and cure, it takes art and relationships.
Don't be crazy trying to amass material things and more stuff.
