The remarkable doctor, Hinohara, worked 18 hours a day and kept an appointment book with space for five more years.
His other tips -
1. Worry less about eating well or getting more sleep, and have fun.
2. If you want to live long, don't be overweight.
3. Don't blindly follow what your doctor says.
4. To conquer pain, have fun.
5. Always take the stairs and carry your own belongings.

I agree with most of the things on the list except maybe about the part on retiring. You just need to keep active in my opinion.

I think it's still important to watch what you eat but of course, don't forget to enjoy life. If you are happier then you are less stressed and it will make you live longer.

His tips make perfect sense. I think the biggest thing that affects our life is the stress and the worrying.

Taking the stairs is a great way to stay active. It's something everyone can do so there's no excuse to not stay active at all.

What struck me is on two items, he mentioned fun. That's how important fun is and I can somehow relate to it. Our world now is very fast paced, giving people more stress. Stress can cause a lot of negativity in the body, which is the number one cause of physical pain.

I would want to live a long and happy life. These tips are amazing especially the fun part. We all need to enjoy life and not just focus on work.

I agree on most of it except retiring late and not following your doctor's orders. Those just seems silly. Working can add stress to your life which we've already accepted to be true and your doctor knows what's best for you so why go against it?

Japan constantly tops the charts for 'Countries with high life expectancy'. Their people are obviously doing something right. I agree with worrying less. Worrying and anxiety can lead to a long list of physical pain, if it goes untreated, can even lead to suicidal thoughts.

Why shouldn't I follow my doctor? He would know best on what I need to do. He does have basis for prescribing meds or anything health related.

#1 is probably the best. It states everything that people forget. It's always about worrying about everything and letting life pass you by.

I think having fun is important because I had a grandmother who lived to be 95 and she is active until the day she died and she loves having fun.

This isn't surprising since most Japanese people I see when I visit are always working, even the old ones. Maybe that is the secret to long life.

Well, if there's anybody who knows the secret to long life, it's the Japanese. They eat healthy and they are active so I think those are some key take away points in this.
