Zhao Weishan was a scholar at the time of the Zin Dynasty (1644 – 1911). He is the author of Episodic Notes on Healthy Lifestyle (Lao Lao Hung Yen). In his book he recommended “not to give up studies because of age”. He also noted that “you should not doom your mind to idleness and allow it to turn into a piece of cracked wood or dead ashes… When you concentrate it, it would not be slothful to serve you”.

An old saying says” When I am ill, I do not call a doctor; books keep my health and my life”.

To train your mind is very important and that should continue throughout your life. In Yoga there are special sectors Jnana Yoga (Yoga of Knowledge) and Laya Yoga. Jñāna yoga (“union due to pure knowledge”[1]) is one of the three classical types of yoga, Laya yoga attempts to locate the five main energy centers in the spine and the two energy centers in the head and channelize them through meditation. These two kinds of yoga deal with philosophy and natural and esoteric sciences; they also deal with magic diagrams and colours. 100 Years Old

In Qigong, Daoism and Buddhism there are analogous practices connected with meditation. In Chan (Zen) Buddhism there is a system of kōans. A kōan is a story, dialogue, question, or statement, which is used in Zen practice to provoke the “great doubt” and test a student’s progress in Zen practice. These tasks can sometimes take years when you work on yourself physically and spiritually.

Scientific research shows that after the age of forty in the human brain some degenerative processes begin. If you load your brain regularly, it will atrophy slower. If you compare elderly people, who actively use their brains to educate themselves, with people of the same age who do not, you will see that in many cases intellection saves people from senility and dementia. Naturally, there are exceptions. Some centenarians, in Bulgaria as well, are illiterate, they cannot read or write. Probably in their case there are other mechanisms which compensate intellection. However, some research in Japan shows that intellectuals have better perspectives for long life than people from the country who are physical workers.

Anyway, the combination of physical and mental work is the best. 100 Years Old
