Life Expectancy Website

July 19th, 2007

Me at 80?Ever wonder how what you do will effect your life expectancy? Do you eat right? Do you wear your seatbelt? Do you exercise? Do/did you have relatives that came down with a disease? All of these things effect how long you will live.

Recently, I took an online life expectancy test . The test said that my average life expectancy is 92 with a chance to live to 101. Wow! That is a really long time. I run/speed walk 3-4 days a week. I try to eat all of my fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. I drink between 12-16 glasses of water a day. I sleep around 9 hours a night. I “try” not to stress, but it does happen – quite a bit. I do have history of Type II Diabetes and stroke in my family. I bet if I could take off 20+ lbs, I could live longer. Then again, I can’t really see myself living to 100 yrs. old.

The things I would see in my lifetime if I lived to be 100. The things I have lived through so far: going to the moon, computers, cell phones, biodiesel/electric cars, Tivo, bread machines, touch-tone phones, iPods, video conferencing, tele-commuting, warehouse clubs, etc.

Something to think about…how long will I live? That is if I don’t bleed to death in a freak typing accident. Until then, I will keep doing what I have done. Who knows? Maybe one day I will be living on a new planet writing my memoirs.
