Slide2:

Most people want to live a long and fulfilling life while maintaining proper health over the years. Although the lifespan of each person can be hereditary, there are a number of steps to take to increase your chances of living longer. To improve your health and add years to your life, there are a few tips to follow to increase your longevity.

Maintain a Healthy Weight:

Maintain a Healthy Weight For many people, it can be easy to pack on the pounds slowly with each year that passes due to a slower metabolism and a decrease in physical activity. Although it may not seem dangerous, it can gradually lead to a number of diseases and ailments. Maintain a healthy weight with proper diet and exercise to reduce your risk of diabetes, cancer, and heart attacks. Avoid overeating and put your fork down when you are 80 percent full to prevent weight gain.

Wait to Have Kids:

Wait to Have Kids Although it may seem risky to have children later in life, studies show that women who have children after the age of 40 are four times more likely to live to 100. You may have grandchildren later in life, but you'll be sure to live long enough to enjoy seeing them grow and develop in your golden years.

Stay Connected:

Stay Connected It's important to maintain a busy schedule and stay connected to your family and friends to maintain your mental well-being and cognition as you age. Spending time with your loved ones will not only reduce your risk of loneliness or depression, but can prevent inflammation, which is just as dangerous as high levels of cholesterol.

Drink Alcohol in Moderation:

Drink Alcohol in Moderation Avoid high consumptions of alcohol, which can lead to weight gain, seizures, and nerve damage. Drinking in moderation will allow you to take advantage of the health benefits without damaging your health due to too much intake. Drinking too much alcohol can also cause severe damage to your liver and organs.

Manage Stress:

Manage Stress Stress is one of the main factors that can quickly shorten your lifespan due to the effects that it can have on your health. Improve your immune system by managing stress and to increase your energy levels to combat fatigue. Stress can shorten telomeres, which are related to health and longevity. Make it a point to take vacations, relax on the weekends, and avoid working too late.

Stay Busy:

Stay Busy A sedentary lifestyle can be just as bad as smoking, making it important to maintain a busy schedule and exercise at least three times a week. Consider walking or riding a bike for a reliable mode of transportation and avoid sitting for too long while you're at work.
