HOW TO LIVE A HUNDRED YEARS OR MORE

How to Live A Hundred Years Or More

A recent article in the Adelaide Advertiser noted that there were over 2,700 people in Australia one hundred years or older. The article also suggested that by the year 2055 this number will swell to 78,000!

 

Obviously we are doing things differently today than say, fifty years ago.

However, even though these figures are heartening,  to be sensible, the figures need to be compared to the millions who die prematurely due to preventable causes.

 The most common of these would be smoking, drugs and obesity.

And perhaps the worst would be obesity because it affects young and old and all areas of society.

 

 
In fact the BBC News reported that “the World Health Organization predicts there will be 2.3 billion overweight adults in the world by 2015 and more than 700 million of them will be obese.”

That’s one third of the earth’s population!

More than likely not many of these will be amongst the 78,000.

 With obesity comes diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and circulatory conditions, and arthritis, to name a few. In fact an article in the Adelaide Advertiser for Tuesday 19th.August suggested that research is also “showing that obesity can be attributed to 39 per cent of cancers of the uterus, 37 per cent of cancers of the oesophagus, 25 per cent of kidney cancers, 11 per cent of colorectal cancers and 9 per cent of post-menopausal cancer.”

The Wellness International Network gives a startling glimpse of the problem with the following list of the figures for the USA. Pro-rata, they would be equivalent for Australia.

  • 58 Million Overweight; 40 Million Obese; 3 Million morbidly Obese
  • Eight out of 10 over 25’s Overweight
  • 78% of American’s not meeting basic activity level recommendations
  • 25% completely Sedentary
  • 76% increase in Type II diabetes in adults 30-40 yrs old since 1990
  • 80% of type II diabetes related to obesity
  • 70% of Cardiovascular disease related to obesity
  • 42% breast and colon cancer diagnosed among obese individuals
  • 30% of gall bladder surgery related to obesity
  • 26% of obese people having high blood pressure

Childhood Obesity Running Out of Control

  • 4% overweight 1982 | 16% overweight 1994
  • 25% of all white children overweight 2001
  • 33% African American and Hispanic children overweight 2001
  • Hospital costs associated with childhood obesity rising from $35 Million (1979) to $127 Million (1999)
  • New study suggests one in four overweight children is already showing early signs of type II diabetes (impaired glucose intolerance)
  • 60% already have one risk factor for heart disease

Surge in Childhood Diabetes

  • Between 8% – 45% of newly diagnosed cases of childhood diabetes are type II, associated with obesity.
  • Whereas 4% of Childhood diabetes was type II in 1990, that number has risen to approximately 20%
  • Depending on the age group (Type II most frequent 10-19 group) and the racial/ethnic mix of group stated
  • Of Children diagnosed with Type II diabetes, 85% are obese

 

Again, what does childhood obesity say for the chance of being amongst 78,000 centenarians in 2055? Unfortunately they will be the few survivors of the millions who died prematurely.

Sadly, obesity is having an impact on all facets of society. Seating manufacturers, theatres and airline companies (not to mention clothing manufacturers) are discovering that the average person is becoming wider. Who hasn’t had to accommodate the overflow of an obese fellow passenger sitting alongside on an aeroplane, forcing you to eat like a praying mantis?

But probably not so well known or appreciated is the effect that obesity has on the human spine and other skeletal joints. The increased weight causes the spine to assume abnormal and extreme curves, compromising spinal discs and facet joints. As the accompanying diagram illustrates, obesity causes a forward motion of the centre of gravity. This affects the neck causing the head to tilt forward and upward, often straining neck muscles. The same goes for the lower back due to the corresponding backward movement of the body.

Now that we have been warned, what do we do about it?  Well, it is never too late to tackle the problem. One of the first things to do is to see if or how much we are overweight and the best ways to do this is to calculate your Body Mass (weight)  which takes in to consideration your height. The Herbalife Company supplies an easy to use and understandable calculator on their website: www.feelterrific.com.au/BMI.htm or you can purchase calipers from chemists, some sports stores, to measure body fat. It’s not hard.

Implement a personal health program.

Once you have determined your situation you need to implement a health program including exercise and nutrition.

Here is a list of things to do:

Educate  yourself.

Ignorance is bliss but it can be deadly. Read books and articles, check the internet, but only implement what appears sound and don’t get carried away with anything too esoteric.

uHave a medical check up with your GP and ascertain your condition (especially before commencing an exercise regime).

Exercise Daily.

Start with a little and build up. Walk around the back yard or down the street until you can venture further afield.

Implement a Nutrition Program.

Get help from a professional by consulting a Naturopath or a holistic Chiropractor to help your program. But commonsense alerts most of us to the right and wrong things we eat.

Stop Smoking  (or taking non prescription drugs and excessive drinking). As if we didn’t know these would be on the list.

Now, before I close let me say that we all recognize that life is not fair. All of us know of instances of the few that defy the statistics and despite their lifestyles, reach old age. On the other hand, a friend of mine who was as fit as the proverbial bull died of a heart attack whilst playing squash at 56 years of age. Maybe he should have taken cognizance of the fact that both his parents also died in their fifties due to heart problems.

So what’s the point?

Just this. We need to do our best at keeping fit but have to be comfortable with the variables of life. Accidents, natural disasters, and our genetical background all have an impact on how long we will eventually live.

Maybe you and I will be amongst the 78,000 – if so I will be 109!

Multiple Income Streams

One of the things that I promote as an Internet Entrepreneurial Mentor is to establish multiple income streams.

It’s a bit like purchasing investment properties. You never become emotional attached to the properties you buy – you buy them in the areas where you are going to make the most money ( did I tell you I own investment properties as well?). The best thing to do with properties is to buy them  where you are going to get the best rents AND where their values are to rise the quickest.

This is the same with investing in multiple online businesses.

You need to search out the best without getting emotionally attached to the organisation. If its making money (rent) and their value (residual income)is paying dividends then you are on to the right one.

Having selected one and established yourself in the niche you should then endeavour to seek out others and duplicate the process.

Multiple Income Streams

But you may ask, ‘what businesses do I choose?’

It’s a good question because when you do a search on the internet there are hundreds on offer – some good and many – well, not so good.

So what I thought I would do is present a few I have found successful.

Mutiple Income Streams

The first is both an online as well as an offline business but extremely profitable. It is a Muti Level Networking business and you become your own Business Owner.

It involves the world’s biggest global telecommunications and energy company – and you can become involved for a minimal cost – but expect big payouts if you are prepared to put the time in.

It works well in over 23 countries but particulary so in the USA  (I am in Australia and it’s great too).

This picture is an illustration of what you can do. This 30 year old young guy believed in his product so much that he was able to convey this belief to those he spoke to and quickly built his business up and enabled him to buy cars that were the passion of his life.

Another business worthy of mention is the SkinnyBodyCare weight loss business.

Did you know that “weight loss” is the biggest business on the internet?

Because of this there is huge potential for you to make money – but the trick is to become involved in a company that is able to deliver on its promises and advertisements – and the SkinnyBodyCare company is one of them.

I should know. I am a professional involved in the health care industry and as far as I am concerned this company delivers a fair priced and safe commodity as well as a ton of support to its customers as well as to its sales people.

Another I have found valuable is called Xplocial.

This one provides digital products in the form of  motivational training, internet business – travel and accomodation and shopping vouchers – and more – as well as money.

Check this one out HERE 

There is another but I will leave it here – suffice to say that there are always opportunities available to develop multiple income streams on the internet

Face Book Marketing System

Hi everyone,

There are almost four billion users of Face Book. Who would have thought a few years ago that there would be such a social platform as Face Book?

And yet here it is, changing the way the average person contacts family, friends and business associates as well as providing an advertising medium that attrracts possible customers by the millions – more than some of the biggest newspapers in the world!

And it’s free!

Face Book Marketing System

Face Book Marketing System

Savvy entrepeneurs quickly took advantage of  advertising on Face Book awhile ago and have made the proverbial “killing”, raking in thousands of dollars a week

But the good news is that there are still heaps of opportunities out there in Face Book for new entrepeneurs to become millionaires.

Facebook Marketing System

 

 

 

 The answer lies in marketing

  •  Blogging, like I’m doing here is a good form of marketing (more of that in another blog).

  • Paid FB advertisements are also a profitable way – if you know what you are doing (contact me and I will help you – you help me and I will help you).

  • Posting on your page is also good – with this caveat – FB does not like you posting your business on a private page – you need to get a business page (free – and easy) and establish for yourself a business entitiy.

  • Then there is Face Book Marketing Systems like mine. It enable you to target your audience to over 1,500 groups, many of these who have over 10,000 members!

Got a fishing product? Then advertise to the fishing groups of the whole world. What about weight loss products; jewellrey; golf products; written a book?; candles; – you name it – they are found in Face Book groups.

Whoever you want to market to, or whatever you want to market – you need my Face Book Marketing System and you can get it by leaving a message below or by checking it out HERE
