109-Year-Old Veteran and His Secrets to Life Will Make You Smile

I just came across the following video which i found interesting. What constitutes a healthy life?

And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

This was the last word of the Tathagata.

Very interesting.

No greed, good intentions, and probably a great bunch of good kamma from the past. That seems to lead to a healthy life.

For people who have very good health one of major, or possibly, the major reason why they live for so long - is the will to live itself. This man seems to have a stong will to live still. My wife told me a story about her grandmother. Don't remember how old was she, but quite old. She also smoked a lot, till death, never had issues with health because of that. And she died just because she lost will to live, not because of a disease.
