Another one of those longevity stories

From Kent Online

The grandfather from Stelling Minnis, who celebrates his 96th birthday on Friday, works for Kent Wool Growers (KWG) five days a week - with no intention to retire any time soon...

Mr Huntley says he keeps fit and healthy by working, regularly exercising and making sure he gets eight hours sleep every night.

For the past 50 years he has attended the gym religiously once a week, and says nutrition is key with "meat and two veg" on the menu [every day - according to The Metro], Sussex beef especially.

All these stories about people who are still living an active life at a very old age seem to have one thing in common - they have a routine, usually a daily routine.

It doesn't seem to matter too much what the routine is - it's different for different people - but the point is to find a routine you enjoy and then just live every day pretty much the same.

Come on Mark I was expecting something in there about smoking 20 a day and still living to 96 :-)

M, there are examples of that. What does you in is stopping smoking.
