Here's To A Long Life For All

UnitedHealth Group did a survey of 100 people between the age of 100 and 104 (young 'uns), and here are some of the results:

- 23 percent said faith was responsible for their long life
- other factors: genes, medical care, hard work, healthy diet, and "living a good, clean life"
- 61% said there was nothing they would have done more of in their lives
- 78% said there is nothing they would have done less
- 13% said they wished they had traveled more
- 9% said they wished they had worked less
- 6% said they wished they had spent more time with their families

- 30% considered raising a family as their most satisfying achievement while 20% valued mostly their careers (what about the other 50%??)

My take home message:

work less
travel more
worry less
trust more
and most of all
spend time with the people that really matter

Picture taken near Temple Square in Salt Lake City. A nice example of crepuscular rays.

Well, working less may be difficult right now, but I can worry less and trust more and spend good time with family.

Nice synopsis and beautiful photo!
