‘Incredible’: 89-year-old shares simple steps to make him look 20 years younger
From superfoods rich in vitamins and nutrients to physical activity that strengthens the cardiovascular system, there are many ways to approach longevity. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to a long and healthy life, the 89-year-old shared what he believes.
89-year-old bachelor Robert Addison from Marble Arch in London shared simple exercises that he owes to his youth and good shape.
The 89-year-old, who looks 20 years younger, said he owes his good health to daily stretching exercises, yoga and rigorous skin care.
From the age of thirty, he has been doing simple exercises every day.
This new regime started when Robert started having back problems. The writer said: “My back was so bad that it twisted to the right.

“So I decided to fix it and went to an osteopath who quit his job himself.
“He recommended those two to four minutes before I get up and it was incredible.”
Since then, Robert has been combining daily stretching before getting up with a 30-minute yoga or swimming session.
The 89-year-old also does balance exercises – standing on one leg for several minutes as often as he can – meaning he has never had to use a cane.

He added: “If you use a stick, you become addicted to it and you lose the ability to walk without it.”
People often don’t believe that Robert is almost 90 years old and many accuse him of lying about his age.
He said, “Every time I go out, people tell me I must be in my 70s or 60s. They even accuse me of lying to them.”
Countless studies, from walking to moderate physical activity, continue to suggest that exercise is a key factor in longevity, and Robert’s yoga practice is a great candidate.

One study found that people over 40 who practiced yoga for five years had lower blood pressure and heart rate than those who didn’t.
High blood pressure can set the stage for serious health problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Therefore, reducing your reading is a must to achieve longevity.
In addition, the NHS recommends that adults aged 19 to 64 be physically active every day.
Another thing that Robert sticks to is a strict skin care regimen that consists of a day cream to protect him from the sun, a night cream and an anti-aging eye cream.
In addition to these daily activities, Robert believes that it is equally important to keep yourself busy.
He is still working at the age of 89 and has high hopes for his writing.
Robert added: “Healthy eating, regular exercise and positive thinking. I rate all three factors as equally important.
“I don’t have time to die before 100, because I have a ten-year master plan: if you live to do something, you will live longer.”
