"Maybe the key to a long life is really just enjoying life and indulging yourself a bit?"

Yes exactly this.

There's an old Victorian song about sex that has turned into a saying/proverb that can be applied to anything indulgent:

I always hold in having it if you fancy it

If you fancy it that’s understood

And suppose it makes you fat? I don’t worry over that

‘Cos a little of what you fancy does you good.

Marie Lloyd ~ 1900
