PHYSICAL To start with, living a long time starts with genetics.Beyond that, the less food you consume, and the more exercise you get over your lifetime, the longer you are likely to live. In fact, it has been proven that starving yourself leads to a longer life span. Do not smoke, use drugs,excessive alchahol or engage in unsafe behavior. Avoid stress.You can take a very expensive regimin of vitamins and antioxidants that will help your cells resist ageing.better diet, access to healthcare and exposure to fewer diseases. ranging from lifestyle choices, such as smoking, to genes.Above all calorie controlled diet controls metabolic rate and thus life span. MENTAL & SPIRITUAL In yoga by Proper breathing. life starts with breath and ends with breath. Most indian yogis live beyond 90 years.The life span is decided in number of breaths, so if one slows down breathing, his actual calendar life will increase.

I agree with all answers above, but first of all, I think the real secret is to wish living, in other words, love life. Maybe, the word LOVE was missing in the previous responses.... Besides that, we have to emphasize that people who have a work, who feel themselves as "useful" and productive ones tend to live longer. And if you wanna have a long healthy life, do not stop learning new things and moving your body. Life is movement and the capacity of one has to adjust himself along his life movements.
