We did get a lot of people who wrote in questions just asking what your daily habits are, what you do every day, if you exercise, if you think exercising a lot when you’re younger is important to longevity?
Well, that’s a very — I have almost no exercise, except when the Army Air Corps made me do exercise. I’ve done almost no exercise on purpose in my life. If I enjoyed the activity like tennis, I would exercise. But for the first 99 years, I’ve gotten by without doing any exercise at all.
And you’re not planning on changing that anytime soon?
No, I’m not changing it.
Other people’s mileage may vary. (Laughter)
Somebody said, what would the 100th day of your life look like? And how would you want to spend it when you step out of bed in the morning?
Well, I step out of my bed these days and then sit down in my wheelchair. So I am paying some price for old age. But I prefer it to being dead.
And whenever I feel sad about being in a wheelchair, I think well you know, Roosevelt ran the whole damn country for 12 years in a wheelchair. So I’m just trying to make this wheelchair thing last as long as Roosevelt did.
That's a good plan, I like it.
Everyone have a different way of living, the key is to have a healthy mental health.
