You can’t stop time, but many will tell you what really matters is how we feel. What’s important is to keep your mind and body feeling young. One tried and true way to do this is to never slow down. Heather Whitson, MD, associate professor of medicine (geriatrics) at Duke University School of Medicine, says:

“‘Exercise and physical activity is where the strongest evidence lies, not just for reducing mortality, but also for across-the-board health benefits’ Whitson says. She ticks off exercise’s advantages: fewer heart risks, improved sleep and memory, less depression and pain, better bone strength, and fewer falls.”

So wherever you are, whatever you are doing it, don’t stop.  Dance, walk, chase your grandkids, whatever keeps you moving keep doing it.  You can read about other habits to develop here: http://wb.md/1U27JeX.
