Longevity would be nice, right? Living longer and being super healthy to really enjoy that long life. Today's Zestology podcast guest Daniel Reid knows all about how to do this. He's a bestselling author on the ancient practices of Taoism, with his book The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity.

I loved this book, so I got in touch with Dan in Byron Bay, Australia and he stayed up late to come on Zestology. He's a colourful character with a huge amount of knowledge, and he's lived a full and fascinating life, as you'll hear.

I asked him to pick 5 rules for living a long and healthy life.

Follow these 5 rules and  as you'll hear you might live to the age of 243.*
