Why Do They Think They’ve Lived So Long?
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.
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.
