I was reading this article and read this part:

>Tanaka never divulged the secret to her longevity, although she was known for waking up at 6 a.m. and spending her afternoons practicing mathematics and calligraphy to keep her mind sharp.

>In fact, she became such an expert at the classic board game Othello that she’d frequently beat the retirement home staffers.

Are writing, maths and boardgames (and apparently chocolate and fizzy drinks) the secret to longevity?
