add years to someone’s life (人)の寿命を延ばす
Let someone live longer, increase their longevity. Not smoking will add years to your life too. Eating healthy food adds years to your life. And we also have an opposite expression, “Take a certain, a number of years off one’s life.” We often say this after something scary or very strenuous has happened. Imagine you nearly fall down the stairs. You grab the railing and you stop yourself, but, Oh! That was scary. Oh, my goodness! You might say, “Oh! That just took five years off my life.” Or, a year, two years, however much you would like to calculate it is.

Lyons says, “My advice to people who are planning what to do after they retire is to put together a set of activities to keep you busy and give some structure to your daily life.”
Assemble the different elements of something, bring them together. I put together a report on current market conditions, for example. Or, she put together a bag of toys and snacks to take to the park.
