Life Is Long

Karen Salmansohn (58 years young in August 2018)

Want to live to one hundred – and feel thirty-ish? Me too!
I’m a late-in-life mom.
I want to be around to dance at my son’s wedding.

With this in mind, I recently promised my son, Ari, that I’d do everything I can to live to one hundred.

Ari wanted me to live to two hundred, but I bargained him down to one hundred.

Ari accepted my counteroffer.

I then went on a quest to learn everything I could to live longer – and younger! I read stacks of books and interviewed and immersed myself in cutting edge knowledge gathered from a range of top health and longevity experts.

Throughout Life Is Long I share a wide range of longevity boosters – including fascinating studies on everything from coffee to fasting to hidden toxins – and shedding light on intriguing questions like…

  • what spice improves cardiovascular health as much as aerobic exercise?
  • how can brushing my teeth improve my heart health?
  • how do I keep my chromosomes in good shape?
  • and more!

I’m excited to share all that I learned!

After all, the more people who live to one hundred plus alongside me, the more people who will come to my one-hundredth birthday party.

And I promise it will be a super fun 100th birthday bash.

Oh, and I’m not joking.

I’m actually planning my one-hundredth birthday party now – for two researched reasons.

  • I want to engage in plan de vida (“reason to live”) – a common practice of peppy elders living in Nicoya, Costa Rica, a famed centenarian hotspot. In Nicoya, residents credit their longevity to living with a purpose. (Example: Looking forward to fun times with family and friends.)
  • I want to positively embrace getting older. According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people who enjoy a happy attitude about aging lived more than seven years long than those with negative attitudes about aging.

So I’m planning my one-hundredth birthday party – for real!
And you are invited!

Great knack for reducing wisdom to memorable words
