Living to be happy and healthy in the year 2100.
A weekly dose of evidence-based actionable insights for pragmatic realists who want to live longer, healthier, happier lives.
Welcome to Twenty-One Hundred: a weekly dose of evidence-based actionable insights for pragmatists who want to live longer, healthier, happier lives.
Living to be happy and healthy in the year 2100? Seriously?
The year 2100 is less than 80 years away. For most readers, living to see the turn of the century means we’ll be as old as some of the world’s verified oldest people today. For me, it means reaching the ripe old age of 113 — something only a single British male has achieved.
But it’s not good enough to just survive to 2100. We don’t want to wake up, grimace, and finally allow ourselves to die. No, we’re aiming to be happy and healthy. We want to be ready to hop on a shuttle to Mars, or to play with our great-great-grandchildren, or to start learning to play the piano.
New technologies and treatments routinely cure or prevent diseases which would have been terminal 50 years ago. Research into longevity and the slowing or prevention of ageing is exploding. We know more than ever about how lifestyle choices can dramatically extend our life expectancy and improve our quality of life.
This newsletter brings you a weekly dose of actionable, research-based insights that help you live better for longer. Each week, I have a single goal: help you live to be happy and healthy in the year 2100.
What topics are in scope?
Living well is a broad subject. The newsletter will cover anything that gets us closer to our goal. The only restrictions: content must be evidence-based (no pseudoscience, snake oil, or bullshit) and it has to be compatible with the ideal of living a good life.
Happiness, health, relationships, goal setting, sleep, nutrition, ethical living, financial independence, career satisfaction, the moral implications of living longer lives… these topics are all fair game.
What can you expect each week?
1 evidence-based action you can take to a live a longer, happier life.
2 challenges and questions to help shape your thinking.
3 recommended articles, books, videos, or podcast episodes.
Zero pseudoscience, snake oil, or bullshit.
