It might seem disingenuous to say that living longer is a challenge for Millennials. Of course it is likely to be a blessing first and foremost, but when it comes to affording to live longer, there are somethings that we need to consider, as early as possible, to give ourselves the best chance of making the best of a long life.

Millennial Challenge #1 – Living Longer
There is no real scientific consensus on the expected longevity of Millennials, at least not as far as I can ascertain. Some say their life expectancy could be slightly worse than Gen X, and some say that longevity will continue to improve. Surely with the advance of medical care, and a greater knowledge of what is good for us and what isn’t, there’s a good chance that the average lifespan will push up towards 90.
If that’s true, then it needs to be planned for, as daft as that might sound to today’s 30-year old. Can you really plan for 60 years into the future? What about living for today? In this whole season I want to show you how it is possible to achieve both – that’s quite a lofty goal! So let’s dive into the first of our six challenges.
