Whether it's listening to an iPod, playing video games or keeping up with the news, staying in tune with the times may help people live to 100.
That's some of the advice from a poll of elderly people who were questioned about the secrets of longevity.
Spirituality, a healthy diet, no smoking and being happy were also high of the list of what is important for a long life.

So, fast food is out and you ought to kick the smoking habit. But, will that make you happy?
Now, where'd I put the whisky!

Maybe it just seems longer if you have to live like that. Like on the Simpsons when Bart is bored in school and the clock hands start moving backwards.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - drink in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: Woo Hoo, what a ride!
Two or so years ago I spoke to a lady pushing 102, she had goo heaaring, sight and could walk etc to be honest I ddint realise she was so old untill told.
SHe reckoned that to live long as she did the secret was to do pretty much as the moment dictated, I.e do as you want and dont worry!
...you ought to kick the smoking habit
I heard a comedian tell this joke.
"I was told that if I quit smoking I can add years to the end of my life. I can see it now, 90 years old, living in a nursing home, having an aide clean my butt, thinking, I should not have quit smoking." :)
The secret to a long life is, to quote an old Taoist sage "eat when you are hungry and sleep when you are tired" it works for me (42, heavy smoker for the past 27 years, and I like several pints of beer a day).
Staying off processed food helps, but if it's natural eat it!
