My Longevity Approach…so Far

Brandon Eleuterio

There are two aspects to longevity, lifespan and healthspan. Lifespan is how long you live, healthspan is how long you remain healthy. I feel the latter outweighs the former.

My longevity goal is to fall off the proverbial cliff – continue to walk, run, and lift heavy things as close to death as possible. To do so, I must fend off the big debilitators of aging: Metabolic disease (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s), Sarcopenia (muscle degradation), bone loss, and reduced mobility.

To stave off the disease of aging, as professor David Sinclair describes, there are four levers I’ll pull: sleep, stress, diet, and movement.

The following is a snapshot of how I’m currently affecting these four areas of my life. A year ago, my strategy was different. A year from now, it’ll likely change. I’m fairly strict about my routines, but I do allow for experimentation and occasional exceptions.

Sleep

Stress

Diet

Exercise

Following these guidelines, my health indicators are excellent, and most importantly, I feel awesome! This lifestyle may not work for everyone, but it seems to work for me.

Are there any routines or habits you follow that slow down your aging?
