Remember These Tips if You Want to Live Longer

Written by on February 27, 2019 in Longevity & Life Extension with 0 Comments

Although it is true that one of the sure things about living is dying, it does not mean you cannot prolong life. By staying healthy and active, you can help prolong your life. Here are some tips to consider if you want to extend your life expectancy.

Stay outdoors

Do not feel too comfortable indoors. You can walk or jog in the morning. You also need a daily dose of vitamin D to help improve your skin and strengthen your bones. Sometimes, a 15-minute exposure to the sun each day is enough to get your required dose of vitamin D.

Go out with friends 

Being around people is vital for any human being. You cannot live your life in solitude forever. Forging great relationships with the people around you is key to being healthy. You are also less likely to take risky actions because you know that if you hurt yourself, you are also hurting the people you love. You can go out with your friends to have fun, or you can even talk to them over the phone if you want someone to listen to your problems.

Daily exercise

 You need to commit to regular exercise. It does not have to be a rigorous exercise programme to build your body. You can find the methods that work well for you. The point is that you should be consistent in doing the programme. Avoid going for two days without any form of exercise since you will have a hard time going back to your usual routine. You can also vary the physical activities you do to avoid getting bored. For instance, you can head to the gym on a Monday for weight training. The following day, you can participate in a dance class. Exercising will not only help you improve your health. It also lets you meet people and socialise.

Floss daily

You might find it to be a weird tip, but it works. When you floss, you avoid having inflamed gums caused by bacterial infection. The problem is when you have gum disease it is an inflammation that makes it difficult for your heart to do its job. It might not seem the likeliest of all health-related tips, but there is nothing wrong in trying it. Besides, it does not take much time to floss.

Always consult with your doctor

Early diagnosis leads to early treatment and the prevention of severe health issues. Therefore, it helps if you regularly visit your doctor. You can undergo health checks and tests to ensure that you are physically well. Do not wait until you start feeling ill before you see your physician.

Take time to let go of stress

Stress is among the causes of death around the world. When you feel like you have a lot to bear, it is difficult for you to focus. Once your mental health declines, everything else suffers. Therefore, it helps if you spend time being alone and let go of stress.

You can find large houses for rent for a weekend where you can be alone and not worry about anything. Forget your problems and be selfish for a while.

Nothing is certain in life, but you can take measures to increase your longevity.
