He was 105 when he died.
He was happy every day.
He lived life to the fullest.
His name? Dr. Shikeaki Hinohara.
“They say that with age comes knowledge. A lifetime of trial and error, meaningful experiences, and lessons learned gives people a deeper perspective of the world that younger generations tend to lack.
Life, like anything, requires practice. That is something that this 105-year-old Japanese doctor vouched for in his life.
His goal before his death was to share with you what he learned so that you can learn how to live longer and be happy.
At a glance:
1. Healthy eating
“All people who live long — regardless of nationality, race or gender — share one thing in common: None are overweight.”
2. Plan ahead
Find things that excite you and put them into your schedule to give yourself something to look forward to.
3. “Retiring” doesn’t mean you stop doing what you love
“There is no need to ever retire, but if one must, it should be a lot later than”
4. Share what you know
“I give 150 lectures a year, some for 100 elementary-school children, others for 4,500 business people. I usually speak for 60 to 90 minutes, standing, to stay strong.”
Knowledge is power. Use what you have learned from your experiences to teach other people and contribute to society in a positive way.
5. There’s more to healing than science
“I think music and animal therapy can help more than most doctors imagine.”
Coming from the mouth of a doctor: “Science alone can’t heal everything.”
6. Take the stairs and carry your own stuff
Keeping your body strong will help to also keep your mind strong as you age. Hinohara reported that he would take the stairs two at a time to get his muscles moving. If this 105-year-old man could do it, then you can too!
7. Find inspiration
“My inspiration is Robert Browning’s poem “Abt Vogler.” It encourages us to make big art, not small scribbles.”
8. Heal pain with fun
“Pain is mysterious, and having fun is the best way to forget it.”
9. Don’t be crazy about amassing material things.
Hinohara knew more than anyone that you can’t take material things with you when you die. Don’t waste your life attempting to accumulate ‘things’. Instead, use your time and money to accumulate experiences.
10. Find a role model
