Not just live to 100. But do the things you want to do til 100. The average life span for a male living in Canada is 79 years; 81 years for a woman.
Life expectancy is expected to increase by 10% in the next 10 years. This is only half the story. The average male will lose their health at 69.7 years and females will lose their health at 72.1 year. They will then live with chronic, progressive diseases for the next decade. The majority of which are lifestyle related and preventable.

If you don’t adopt a healthy lifestyle, chances are you will a part of this chilling fact:
The average Canadian will spend 10 years in a care home. If you were healthy enough to spend those 10 years on a cruise ship rather than in a care home, life would be better and you would put $4000 a month in your pocket. The average cost of a month of care in a home? $3,000-$8,000/month. For private 24 hour home care this can increase to as much as $14,000/month. The average cost for a month of cruising? $10000.
It’s interesting to note that the majority of residents in care homes are regretful that they did not change their habits earlier to prevent the progression that led to their care home stay.
