Living a Long Life
September 5, 2017 12:25pm CST
I found this absolutely fascinating. Apparently scientist have discovered ways to know how long we’ll live. One of the things they say is the if one has a strong grip when it comes to handshaking this is an indication of not only confidence but also of longevity. Supposedly people with firm handshakes could have benefited from a happy childhood which included a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. Well first of all I do have a firm handshake and thanks to my parents I definitely had a happy childhood and plenty of exercise especially in the summertime in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Another sure sign of longevity is physical capability such as walking at a fast pace, getting out of a chair quickly and being able to balance on one leg. I can now picture you all standing on one leg. Well to that I have to say that as of this September I am walking briskly around my country roads here and with demanding Sid around I sure do get out of a chair quickly. As for that balancing on one leg I guess I’ll have to time myself. Now I would like to hear what you think?

Having parents that live so long is certainly a plus for you and most likely the main reason you'll live a good long life @Corbin5 of course everything helps a bit too so great that you could stand on one leg let's just not take those things too seriously. You are lucky to still have your dad around. Blessing to you.

Well one thing that must be true is that part of having a brisk walk because staying sedentary is not any good @TiarasOceanView so no matter what else they say I began my brisk walking today and will continue to do so every day so that I don't just wind us sitting by my PC. I really enjoyed my walk in the sunshine today.
@RasmaSandra I hope and pray, btw the article should have also made a study on those people exhibiting those positive traits as to the risk of them dyiing from accidents, strong active people are also accident prone, anyway just a thought that crossed my mind
