Why Do They Think They’ve Lived So Long?

separator It is always interesting to ask people who have reached the age of 100 what they think contributed to their longevity. In a recent survey of people who were between the ages of 100 and 104, 23 percent of respondents gave faith and spirituality as the primary reasons for their long lives. Other findings from the survey:

  • 13 percent of the participants said they wished they had traveled more
  • 9 percent said they wished they had worked less
  • 6 percent said they wished they had spent more time with their families.

Additionally, 30 percent of the people responding to the survey said they found raising families the most satisfying accomplishment in their lives, while 20 percent said their careers were most important and rewarding.

 The survey was conducted by Evercare, which provides healthcare plans to people with disabilities and to people who are chronically ill.
