Living a long life may appear to be an elusive aim. However, with an increasing number of people living into their late nineties and early one-hundreds, you may be able to join them. You might also believe that being active and eating a healthy diet are crucial. It is, however scientists have discovered that there are other factors that contribute to people having longer and happier lives.It may appear that living a long life is an elusive goal. You might be able to join them, since a rising number of people are living into their late nineties and early one-hundreds. You may also believe that exercise and a good diet are essential. Scientists have shown, however, that there are additional elements that lead to people living longer and happier lives.

According to an article on Insider, the key to living until you're 100 is to stick to your regular routine, even if it's harmful. This can involve basic things like having dessert every night or snacking on junk food.

Dr. Angel Iscovich, a former emergency medicine physician and author of The Art of Routine: Discover How Routineology Can Transform Your Life, makes this proposal. He tells Insider that the routine is more important than the habit of eating bad foods.

Dr. Iscovich uses experiences from persons who have lived to reach 100 years old or older in his book. Foods like bacon and ice cream, according to several of these seasoned pros and their families, are the reason they've survived this long. Others claim that daily beverages such as beer, whisky, and Dr. Pepper have gotten them to this point.

Ischovich and his co-author, Michael Ashley, argue in the essay that sticking to a pattern and "riding those cycles" is the key to achieving purpose, meaning, joy, and even longevity.

While Ischovich claims that everyday routines have an important role, science is still investigating other factors that influence longevity.

Another study published by MarketWatch confirms that bad behaviors in your everyday routine can affect your longevity. Tom Perls, M.D., the founder and director of the New England Centenarian Study, adds in the piece that he believes good genes can help people live longer and be more resilient, even if they have a history of aging-related disorders like heart disease or even cancer or diabetes. Other variables that can contribute to a longer life span include a positive attitude and stress management.

While both papers discuss how to survive till one hundred years old, more research is needed, particularly into what happens inside a person's body.

Another MarketWatch study reveals that unhealthy habits in your daily routine can shorten your life expectancy. In the article, Tom Perls, M.D., the founder and director of the New England Centenarian Study, says that good genes can help people live longer and be more resilient, even if they have a history of aging-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer, or diabetes. A happy attitude and stress management are two other factors that can help you live longer.

According to MarketWatch, experts are now working on new hypotheses to explain why some people live longer than others, with one theory involving cellular senescenceβ€”the process through which a cell ages and stops dividing permanently but does not die. This could be due to a past illness, injury, or stress.Another possibility that academics are investigating is aging biomarkers. Using numerous tests and measurements, researchers are attempting to distinguish between a person's biological age and their chronological age.In the essay, Ischovich and his co-author, Michael Ashley, claim that following a pattern and "riding those cycles" is the key to finding purpose, meaning, joy, and even longevity.
