☆ longevity 寿命
Longevity is a formal word, and you’re more likely to hear it on news reports or see it written in newspapers, books, or articles on the web. In fact, one of the most common themes is the longevity of the people of Okinawa. Researchers in all different fields (e.g. health, diet, exercise, psychology professionals) all want to know why longevity is so common in Okinawa compared to other places.
In fact, Okinawa is one of only five places in the world where longevity is common. In this instance, longevity refers to people commonly living past 100 years of age. Do you know the other places? They are places in California, Italy, Greece, and Costa Rica. Most of the people agreed that less stress, relationships, exercise and a good diet were the keys to longevity.
