Lifestyle Changes to Help You Live Longer
They saying is that the good die young, but you can be good and still live a good, long life. The secret is in the lifestyle choices that you make. Obviously, a life of hard partying and drugs isn’t going to end in a long, healthy life, but making better choices will. By listening to these tips and incorporating them into your life, you can live longer, healthier, and happier.
The next time you have dinner, leave a little on your plate. Studies show that people who eat less are more likely to live longer than those who eat too much. When you are about 80 percent full, stop eating, because these are the people who live the longest.
Yes, I’m talking about sex. Research shows that getting busy at least three times a week is enough to prolong your life another three years. Additionally, having sex can burn as many calories as a good, hard 30-minute run. Of course, one is far more fun than the other.
Turn Off the TV
For every hour you don’t watch television during the day, you will live longer. Television watchers live shorter, less healthy lives than those who turn off the television and get active. Instead, take a walk, cook dinner, go out and have some fun. Television isn’t that interesting anyway.
Of course, spending time in the sun is a good way to relieve stress and make you feel happier overall, but it’s also a great way to develop skin cancer and look older than you really are. The idea here is to protect yourself from the sun and spend more time in the shade than in the actual sun. You will live longer, look better, and be happier if you do things this way.
