What's the key to a long and fulfilled life? | World Economic Forum (

'Use your time wisely'

Nupur Ruchika Kohli is a healthcare leader, medical doctor and advisor with the largest healthcare insurance company in the Netherlands. She is a supervisory board member at UNICEF, Netherlands and is founder of the NRG Foundation, supporting research on climate, sustainability and health

These are my five takeaways for a healthy, long, and fulfilled life. First, take care of mind, body, and planet, all are interconnected. Meditate, exercise, and preserve our climate. Climate change affects our health. Second, build happy relationships and communicate your feelings. Third, develop self-respect, self-confidence, and self-love. Put your own oxygen masks on first to be strong to help others. Fourth, have realistic life expectations. Find satisfaction in what you do and who you are. Fifth, use your time wisely and meaningfully. Find happiness in giving back. Take responsibility for your actions. You only live once.

'Erase your expiry date'

Dianne McWilliam is a PhD student in Economics at the University of Michigan and a former management consultant, interested in the future of ageing and improving elderly wellbeing

We are surviving longer than before, but are we really living longer? For me, the keys to fulfilment today, at age 26, are the same as at 86. However, looking forward to my eighties, I’m faced with only a few doors. To achieve long-fulfilled lives we must erase our ‘expiry date’ and rewrite our story of what it means to grow old. I want more opportunities for fulfilment as I age – not fewer - whether that means looking after my grandkids or founding a start-up and learning to pole dance. By breaking down these barriers, we’ll make way for new sources of meaning, choice, contribution, and growth that will truly let us live longer than before.

'Humans need exercise'

Fatima Abdulkhaliq is a pharmacist and social media content creator. She is currently the Curator of the Erbil Hub in the Global Shapers Community

Exercise is the best way to increase life expectancy. If you exercise in nature that is a bonus because you will get more oxygen into your body when you are outdoors. Just as cars need gas to fuel up, humans need exercise to energize and keep going. Exercise is also a free combination drug that has all the good stuff; it releases endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin, which are known to relieve pain, increase motivation, and make you happier, respectively. Get a daily dose of 20 minutes and find your way to a long-fulfilled life!
