You’ve probably heard, gazillion times, that it’s never too late to be healthy. Let me confirm that fact to you today if you have ever doubted its truth. Adopting healthy habits can actually assist you in slowing down your biological clock and living longer. Luckily for you, these are habits that you can incorporate in your day to day activities.
1. Stop Sitting Still
Do you want to live longer? Well, get those muscles moving! For those who are not a fan of hitting the track or the gym, you will like this: you only need fifteen minutes of moderately intense exercise a day to increase your life span. That brisk walk or jogging session can add you an extra three years. In fact, if you hit the global minimum recommended of 30 minutes a day, five times a week, you can extend this to four years and above.
2. Stop Stressing
If you want to increase your years living on Earth, then you better seriously stop stressing. I know you know what I am talking about. Going over that script over and over again in your head will not help your situation. There are several de-stress methods that you can try out like journaling or writing in a diary, meditating and learning to relax. The liberation you get after doing this is priceless and you stay away from anxiety, tension, and depression. Remember, staying away from stress is a personal effort that you must consciously make.
3. Stop Smoking
Here’s an interesting fact. Smoking can rob you up to a decade of your life! I know it is easier said than done but you have to stop taking that puff. Research shows that tobacco use is the most preventable kind of death. There are many advantages that come with this habit. Apart from being healthy, you also look much younger. Also, you don’t only save your health from the effects of smoking but also that of those around you. You’ll be surprised at how forgiving your body is as soon as you quit smoking. Blood pressure reduces and your blood circulation improves. Also, that dreaded cancer will slowly start retreating from you.
