Imagine It’s Your 100th Birthday. What Do You Write?

Imagine reaching the incredible milestone of turning 100 years old. As you look back on a long life, a flood of memories and experiences come rushing in. On this momentous occasion, what would you write?

  1. Did you do everything you wanted or did your health hold you back?
  2. Are you proud of the positive impact you made at home and work?
  3. Did you help others to improve their health and well-being?
  4. Did you work for an organisation that helped people to improve health or employees to increase productivity, reduce absences and burnout, and better cope with stress?
  5. If you were responsible for recruiting and HR, are you proud that you retained your best talent and you were an employer of choice?
  6. What wisdom would you impart to future generations?
  7. What would you do differently if you were to live another 100 years?


Whether you’re an individual wanting to improve your quality of life, affected by cancer, or caring for a loved one with cancer, a workplace wellness provider or employer that wants to improve the health and wellness of employees, or an insurance provider wanting to help clients to improve health outcomes, you may well be motivated by the thought of living a positive and fulfilling 100 years of life. But, what does it mean to plan for your 100th birthday and why is it important for individuals and organisations?


How to Train for Your 100th Birthday

This podcast episode from Peter Attia MD is a great overview of planning for your 100th birthday:


The Need for Urgent Action

Amidst a society grappling with the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle and the escalating health crisis, there is an urgent need for individuals of all ages to take immediate action. By embracing a healthy lifestyle, people can defy the limitations imposed by age and rediscover their true potential.


The Power of Training to Be 100 Years Old

Preconceived notions about ageing are wrong. Structured training programmes can help to prioritise strength, endurance, agility, and mental acuity.


The Role of Nutrition and Lifestyle

Nutrition and lifestyle play a crucial role in helping individuals to achieve optimal performance. A well-balanced diet, rich in nutrient-dense foods, will fuel the body and enhance recovery. There is a need for individuals to adopt healthy habits such as regular sleep patterns, stress management techniques, and social connections to optimise overall well-being.


The Concerning Impact of Ageism

Ageism is a prevalent societal issue that undermines the potential of older adults. These stereotypes should be challenged to empower individuals to redefine the narrative surrounding ageing. Society should recognize the incredible capabilities and contributions of older individuals.


Embracing the Challenge: A Call to Action

Reaching your 100th birthday, and for that day to be filled with positive and fulfilling reflections, is a challenge that should be embraced. By participating in transformative programmes, individuals can rewrite their own stories, break free from societal constraints, and unlock the untapped potential within themselves. There is an urgency to act now to achieve the incredible rewards awaiting those who dare to embark on this unparalleled journey either to improve your own health or to improve the health and happiness of others if you are a workplace wellness provider, employer, or insurance provider.



Planning for your 100th birthday is thought-provoking. It inspires a need for immediate action in redefining our approach to fitness and ageing. By embracing this extraordinary challenge, individuals can turn the tide on ageism, revolutionise their own lives, and inspire others to do the same. For workplace wellness providers and employers it means higher productivity, fewer absences, and less burnout. For insurance providers it means empowering their customers to achieve better health outcomes that reduce the risk of claimants.
