I devote one chapter to each of the 7 super longevity steps in Smart, Strong and Sexy at 100. You can get a free PDF copy right here at https://maxlife.org/smart-strong-and-sexy/. Or, for a nominal price, you can get a hard copy, Kindle or audio version on Amazon. Proceeds benefit Maximum Life Foundation.
The 7 simple steps are:
- Nutritional Supplements
- Anti-Aging Medicine
- Stress Management
When I started writing the book, I thought Nutrition was the most important, as do most authorities today. By the time the book was finished, I realized Attitude is the cornerstone.
There’s far too much information in those 7 chapters to try to summarize for this site (I tried).
But before I let you go, let’s touch on the attitudinal aspect of healthy longevity. (There’s much more in the book.)
Attitude is the foundation upon which everything else rests. It determines your health habits.
Researchers found that optimists who viewed aging as a positive experience lived about 7.5 years longer than participants with a much darker perspective.
I believe lots of us actually die because of our expectations. We’re conditioned to believe the average lifespan is around eighty years, so we wind down and die right on schedule. We usually get what we expect, not what we want.
What if you expected to live to 100? Wouldn’t you naturally gravitate toward the habits that will make that happen? Wouldn’t your thoughts and emotions be more positive?
Loads of research tells us we could stay robust for up to 100. But why don’t we? Could it start with your attitude? Don’t cop out by blaming it on your genes or on luck. Really, 65–75% of it is the choices you make. Your genes account for less than 35%.
Do you find yourself waiting for the “perfect moment” to start reading this book… or any life enhancing habit? Maybe the time to start will be “tomorrow.” Then ask yourself this question. Was there ever a time when you let an opportunity slip by when you could have taken action—but didn’t?
How many times have you started on a new diet or exercise program only to end up back to where you started, or worse? The Attitude chapter will show you how to reverse that destructive habit… and with a smile on your face.
Depending on your habits, you either grow younger biologically, age slower or age faster. Your brain doesn’t watch a calendar. It judges your age on the signals you send to it.
I don’t mean to be an alarmist. But several of my friends have died already. In almost every single case, they had habits that typically lead to the diseases that killed them. Maximum Life Foundation was formed to keep this from happening to you.
The MaxLife philosophy boils down to this:
For the first time in history, we have a shot at the brass ring. We have a chance to be part of the first generation to achieve open-ended growth—or to be a part of the last generation to die from aging. Your actions, starting today, may be the determining factor.
Everything is at stake. And Smart, Strong and Sexy at 100 shows you how to empower yourself.
