When I was a kid there was a great commercial for Marathon candy bars.
‘My name’s Quick Karl and I do everything fast.’
‘Oh yeah, bet you can’t eat a Marathon bar fast.’
Quick Karl quickly bites off a chunk of the cavity producer and starts off fast. Gradually though, his jaw is stuck. His teeth are trying to wade through the stickiness in the bar. He is forced to slow down.
This commercial aired about 30 years ago, I believe. Not only do I still remember it – but I think of it whenever I give people advice on living longer.
What kind of exercise should you do if you want to live a longer life? Should you be like Quick Karl and try to do everything fast?
The answer is yes and no.
At times you’ll want to do things quickly. This will rev up your internal engine and get your blood boiling. At other times you want to completely slow down, breathe deeply and move as quietly as possible while maintaining perfect balance.
And sometimes you want to stop moving externally and move your lungs via deep breathing.
Moreover, there are various pressure points on your body that the Chinese believe should be massaged each day to rejuvenate, recharge and YOUTH your body.
In fact, of more than 300 pressure points on your body, there are just three that, when massaged each day, will open up the meridians in your body, improve chi flow and quite possibly lead to you living 100 years in great health.
Throughout all of China you will see men and women doing exercises that comprise the Chinese Long-Life System.
Three years ago I brought this system to the U.S. and it’s been getting rave results. Be sure to check out the 90-year old lady that I practice these exercises with when I’m visiting my vacation home on China’s Hainan Island.
Go here and see what I’m talking about.
I have no doubt this lady will reach 100 years. She’s way ahead of most because she knows what pressure points to massage, as well as what exercises to do fast and which to do slowly.

P.S. Hope you liked my headline, 100 Years of Healthitude. I think it sounds better than 100 Years of Solitude – after all, living in solitude is probably not the best way to extend your life. Take time each day for solitude – YES. But 100 years of it – no way.
