About This Quiz

There is no guarantee any of us will live a long life. The only sure thing is that one day, our lives will end, but when? This question has driven men and women to search for the fountain of youth, take up strange religious practices, and eat peculiar foods. 

We can't tell you how to live longer because there is no silver bullet solution, but we can look at some of your habits and average out the likelihood that you'll live a long life.

This could be an important moment to take stock of your life. How much time do you spend on fleeting pleasures, and how much time do you spend on the work that will mean a comfortable and healthy retirement?

Do you eat trash every day and then guzzle a kale shake on the weekends or do you eat healthily most days, and have one day to treat yourself? Do you push your body as far as it will go slaving away at work, or do you push it to the max barreling downhill on a bicycle? Do you treat your body like a temple or a trash bin?

These are the factors that will lead to a long life. Take this quiz, tell us about how you live, and we will tell you how long you have on the clock!
