Abstract: “The three most valuable things in the future” are the health-related issues proposed by city government of Beijing in 2021: the first one is defined as “I am healthy, so I will not entangle on my family”; the second is “ I can make others healthy, so to realize the value of life”; the third thing is “I make contribution to social health to make my life meaningful”. Some elder people who we are familiar with have done these very well. When help others in need, they feel very satisfied from being their friend indeed. It is desirable for the elderly to keep a healthy state after retirement. Moreover, they help others to live in health. This spirit comes from their appreciation to the current society environment and great future.

Key words: health, life, aging society
