Who doesn’t want to age like fine wine and look fabulous while doing it? Well, fear not, fashion darlings, because we have the juiciest insights into the secrets of longevity, straight from the mouths of centenarians themselves. Picture this: three dashing researchers from LongeviQuest, globetrotting and chatting with the world’s oldest folks, all in the quest for eternal youth. They’ve heard it all, from centenarians and supercentenarians, and let’s just say, their aging game is strong!

Now, let’s spill the tea on what these age-defying gurus have shared. Gather ’round, fellow fashionistas, and prepare to be amazed!

Incorporating activity into your routine

First up, we have Yumi Yamamoto from Japan, where they do something utterly delightful called “radio gymnastics.” Hold on to your headbands, ladies, because this is a whole new level of chic. Imagine following bodyweight exercises led by a radio broadcast, all while flaunting your fabulous athleisure wardrobe. Yamamoto, of course, adds dashes of radio gymnastics and short bursts of exercise throughout her day. And trust us, these researchers have discovered that even a few minutes of vigorous activity can spark some serious magic. Don’t believe us? One study suggested that workout sessions lasting just four seconds can boost your fitness levels. That’s shorter than the time it takes to pick out the perfect pair of shoes!

Having treats from time to time

Now, let’s indulge in a little guilty pleasure talk. Fabrizio Villatoro has met centenarians who have lived life on the edge, treating themselves to a bit of smoking and a glass or two of wine. We know, we know, the experts don’t endorse such behavior, but here’s the thing: being too strict is a buzzkill. Balance, darlings, balance is the secret ingredient here. Villatoro firmly believes in the power of moderation – a principle that even centenarians swear by. They might munch on chocolate bars and sip Coca-Cola, but they do it with flair and savviness. It’s all about savoring life’s temptations, but with a well-tailored twist.

Staying away from ‘toxic people’

We all know that feeling, don’t we? Sometimes, those toxic vibes mess with our fashionably calm and collected state. Well, take a leaf out of María Branyas Morera’s book (she’s Spain’s oldest living person, validated by none other than LongeviQuest), and distance yourself from the drama. Choose your entourage wisely, dear fashion enthusiasts. Villatoro has mastered the art of steering clear from “toxic people” and not letting others disrupt his elegant flow. Research suggests that healthy relationships have the same impact on longevity as a fabulous diet or an hour on the elliptical. So while you’re curating your wardrobe, take a moment to curate your circle of friends too!

Not stressing about things out of their control

Here’s a juicy secret: those who have aged like fine wine don’t sweat the small stuff. Ben Meyers, Yumi Yamamoto, and Fabrizio Villatoro are the epitome of relaxation, thanks to the wisdom they’ve gathered from centenarians worldwide. These ageless wonders don’t waste a single second stressing about things beyond their control. Yamamoto, with her effortless style, radiates tranquility by letting go of life’s little worries. Meyers, our illustrious CEO, even finds solace in not stressing about his own longevity – talk about confidence!

So, my glamorous comrades, learn from the masters of timeless beauty, and infuse their secrets into your daily routine. Shake it up with some “radio gymnastics,” treat yourself to life’s little indulgences (in moderation, of course), surround yourself with fabulous company, and let go of stress. Remember, fashionistas, aging gracefully is an art form. Embrace it with style, dazzle the world, and stay forever fabulous!
