So you want to live to be a 100.  What’s your plan?

The Stanford Center on Longevity (SCL) can help with research-based action items to get you to the 100 mark — a milestone that more than three quarters of American say they would like to achieve.

SCL’s Sightlines Project identified three areas that are critical to well-being as people age: financial security, healthy living and social engagement.  In each area, SCL identifies nine specific action steps people can take to improve their chances.

The SCL recommendations are based on reviews of eight national, multi-year studies of more than 1.2 American over two decades. 

Steven Vernon, an SCL research scholar, offers a concise summary of the Sightlines Project at this link.

Good luck!
