Who doesn’t want to live longer? I bet almost everyone would take the opportunity to live longer if they could. Did you know adopting a healthy lifestyle could substantially reduce premature mortality and prolong life expectancy in US adults?
The things we do every day can influence how long we live. So do we have to do some bio hacking or a super detox to live longer? Fortunately it much easier then that. Simple things can improve our health and make us live longer. So what are they?
- Never smoking ( that was easy right?)
- Regular physical activity! This can include walking or lifting weight.
- Healthy diet. Mom said eat your vegetables and you’ll be healthy. She was right. Maintain a normal BMI. Obesity will lower how long you can live.
- Moderate alcohol consumption. Less consumption the greater improvement in health.
Doing these thing can prolong life expectancy at age 50 years by 14.0 and 12.2 years for female and male US adults
See you don’t have to become a vegan or run ultra marathons to improve your health and live longer. The one thing I would add is make sure you are sleeping 7-8 hours a day. Lack of sleep can effect you negatively.
